A solar farm and a 5 KW invertor provide electricity, with a back up generator. Plug points are 220 V.
The camp water is pumped directly from the Delta during the ‘wet season’ and from well points during the ‘dry season’. We will provide you with a complimentary bottle of water upon arrival and we also have water for sale at the bar. However, we encourage you to limit the amount of plastic waste created through the purchase of bottled water. Botswana does not have a plastic recycling program and plastic waste ends up on our local landfill site. Most camps in the Delta support the “Throttle the Bottle” campaign and we encourage you to assist us with our effort to reduce our plastic waste by refilling your water bottles at the Osmosis filtration system at the bar.
Our hot water is produced in a ‘Donkey’ or boiler that is heated with a wood fire. We make a fire under boilers early in the morning and again in the afternoon, using firewood collected from dry dead wood, we do not cut any trees.
Jumbo Junction is located on a seasonal tributary of the Selinda spillway and has scenic views of deep water channels and riverine forest islands.
In Room Facilities:
The accommodation at Jumbo Junction offers great value for money in luxury chalets, a catered tented camp and bedded bow tents. In addition, we offer exclusive accommodation in luxury, bush camps at spectacular locations within the concession.
Jumbo Junction provides easy access to a 100 000 hectare, unfenced concession just waiting to be explored. The concession, NG12, has a diverse range of wildlife and its remote location ensures that your game drive vehicle will probably be the only one at game sightings that you experience, a privilege not often found at other locations in the Delta.
