The smallest jacana, and also the hardest to observe, this bird in its own genus occurs widely throughout
sub-Saharan Africa but, preferring dense swamps is often difficult to locate. Quite thinly distributed, but can
be locally numerous in the right habitat. These photos were taken in the papyrus swamps of Uganda, where they occur along
with African Jacana and the famous Shoebill.
