The luxurious Jao Camp is positioned within the private Jao Concession that encompasses riverine forests and glistening floodplains. Jao Camp is a water wonderland, offering guests a classic Delta experience.
Remote and scenically splendid, the 150 000 acre Jao Concession embodies all the magic and mystique of Botswana with vegetation that varies from permanent swamps to dry land. In the east, the Jao Flats boast water channels that cut their way through the papyrus and reed beds, providing the perfect environment for wildlife. Beautiful lush palm islands dot the water.
The camp boasts 8 spacious Tents and 1 Family Tent that are positioned in the shade of indigenous trees. Each Tent features an en-suite bathroom with double vanities, indoor and outdoor showers; a lounge area, mosquito netting, fan, minibar, hairdryer, tea & coffee making facilities, and a verandah with a sala. There are six twin bedded tents and two king-sized bedded tents.
The Family Tent consists of two bedrooms with two three-quarter beds in each bedroom, a main en-suite bathroom with a bathtub and both indoor and outdoor shower, a second en-suite bathroom with indoor shower only, individual entrances and a shared deck.
The camp facilities include a dining area, plunge pool, library, wine cellar, gym, spa, boma, complimentary laundry service
Jao’s position, amongst waterways and lagoons, yet close to dry Kalahari woodland, means you can enjoy both water and land experiences, depending on the time of year. Activities available include mokoro excursions, boating safaris, morning and evening game drives, picnics, fishing, and spa treatments at Jao Spa.
A raised hide located about 20 minutes from camp is a great place to watch the comings and goings of wildlife. The hide can also be used for romantic sleep-outs for a maximum of two people.
During the inundation from April to September lechwe are plentiful and lions follow. Elephant numbers peak from August to November. Plains game and leopard sightings are good. Hunda Island offers a wide variety of wildlife and birdlife is excellent especially during the summer months.
Jao Camp is ideal for solo explorers, couples
