Jao Camp Introduction

Jao Camp is situated on a large, secluded island in a private concession in the heart of the Okavango Delta, bordering the Moremi Game Reserve. Jao offers the ultimate in luxury, incredible photographic opportunities and magical Botswana sunsets. The wildlife viewing is superb and visitors have described this camp as a ‘once in a lifetime experience’.

Shaded by a canopy of trees, the nine spacious and beautifully-designed tents offer en-suite facilities with indoor and outdoor showers. Expansive views from the private sala at each tent make for a sumptuous setting for afternoon siestas.
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.

Jao Camp Game Viewing and Activities

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.
