  • Luxury accommodation options ranges between five expansive safari suites or two sublime villas with private plunge pools
  • Activities at Jao include Game drives, Boating exploring waterways & channels, Mokoro rides, Predator & Prey encounters on Hunda Island

You should know

  • Children 6 years of age and over are welcome at Jao Camp but may not participate in all activities (age dependent).

The detail

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 and Wi-Fi.

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 and families looking for a luxury safari experience.

Price includes

  • Accommodation, all meals, twice daily scheduled camp activities, park fees, laundry and all local brand beverages.

Thanks Pascal you are amazing!
From the moment we arrived in South Africa, our safari adventure was nothing short of extraordinary. Nestled in the heart of the African wilderness, we found ourselves surrounded by the breathtaking landscapes of Kruger National Park, a haven for wildlife enthusiasts. Our accommodation was luxurious yet seamlessly integrated into the natural environment, offering us stunning views of the savannah from the comfort of our private deck. Each day began with an exhilarating sunrise game drive, where our expert guide shared his deep knowledge and passion for the local wildlife. Witnessing the "Big Five" was an awe-inspiring experience that left us in complete awe of nature's magnificence. The guides were incredibly knowledgeable and made sure we felt safe while immersing ourselves in the wilderness. Evenings were equally enchanting, with sundowner drinks enjoyed against the backdrop of a fiery African sunset, followed by sumptuous dinners under the starlit sky. The cuisine was a delightful fusion of local flavors and gourmet dishes, perfectly complementing the day's adventures. The sense of community at the lodge was heartwarming. The staff were attentive, ensuring every need was met with a smile, and fellow travelers quickly became friends as we shared stories around the campfire. Our South African safari was more than just a holiday; it was a transformative journey that connected us with nature and left us with lasting memories. For anyone seeking an adventure that combines luxury, education, and unparalleled wildlife encounters, a safari in South Africa is an absolute must. We left with hearts full of gratitude and a profound appreciation for the natural world, eagerly planning our return to this magnificent land.
