There is a main lounge and dining area, two plunge pools and a boma for dining under the stars. Jao Camp also has a spa where a wide range of massage therapies are offered and a gym for the more active.
Game viewing in the area is good year round and mokoro excursions, boat trips, fishing, guided nature walks, day and night game drives as well as birding opportunities are usually on offer for most of the year due to the abundance of wildlife in the area. There are two platform hides in the concession. During an unusually high flood season, game drives begin by boating out to a nearby Hunda Island where the vehicles are waiting, and the drive begins from there. Huge herds of red lechwe can be seen, followed by their primary predator - prides of lion. Other game, typical of Botswana includes elephant, buffalo, leopard, tsessebe, zebra and wildebeest, hippo and crocodile. Many bird species are resident such as Meyer's Parrot, African Harrier Hawk, Black egret, Coppery-tailed Coucal, Malachite Kingfisher, Hamerkop and Black Crake being some of the avian treasures found at Jao Camp.
