Jao Camp



Jao Camp is located on a large, remote island in a private concession in Botswana, bordering the Moremi Game Reserve in the very core of the Okavango Delta. In the central area of the concession, floodplains offer some of the most spectacular scenery Botswana has to offer.

Jao Camp lies in the southern side of the floodplains, an area with beautiful islands bordered with riverine forests. With varied habitats ranging from waterways and lagoons to dry Kalahari grasslands and open floodplains, Jao Camp can offer both land and water experiences, depending on the flood levels. This luxury camp is a tranquil base for a wonderful Okavango Delta Safari experience.

The Camp:

Jao Camp has nine roomy, decadent tents, each individually handcrafted. These twin-bedded canvas and thatched rooms are situated beneath a canopy of shady trees and have en-suite facilities, as well as an outdoor shower for the more adventurous traveller. Built on high decks, each suite has a private sala for afternoon siestas and offers wonderful views of the spectacular surrounding floodplains of Botswana. In addition to the lounge and dining area, there are two plunge pools and an outdoor boma for dining under the stars, complemented by a superb catalogue of wines from our cellar. Jao Camp also has a spa where a wide range of massage therapies are offered, and a gym for active guests.

Activities & Wildlife:

Mokoro, boat trips, fishing, day and night game drives and birding are usually on offer all year round due to the abundance of wildlife in Botswana. There are two platform hides in the concession for bird-lovers. During an unusually high flood season, game drives begin by boating out to a nearby Hunda Island where the vehicles are waiting.

Watch the prowling prides of lion as they follow the scent of the red lechwe – their staple prey. The other game characteristic of Botswana include elephant, leopard, tsessebe, buffalo, zebra and wildebeest, hippo and crocodile, to the more uncommon spotted-necked otter. Many birds call this place home, including rare gems like Meyer’s Parrot, African Harrier Hawk, Black egret, Coppery-tailed Coucal, Malachite Kingfisher, Hamerkop and Black Crake.
