Project Description

Jao Camp is one of the original premier camps in the region. Situation on a remote island in the centre of the great private Jao Reserve in the Okavango Delta, the camp is surrounded by seasonal floodplains, which are dotted with islands along the coast. Taking influence from both Bali and Africa when it comes to the lodge’s décor, Jao Camp is imposing and luxurious.

Jao can and should be experienced as both a camp for itself as well as for its surrounding environments depending on what visitors wish to get out of their safari experience. The camp aims at providing its guests with a more individual and adaptable experience than many of its neighbours.

The food and spa facilities are top class and should be used on at ones leisure to really round out their trip. Relax and enjoy all that the delta has to offer with a brilliant and varied choice of water-based activities available.

The 9 spacious beautiful tents have en-suite bathrooms and outdoor showers. The twin bedded canvas and thatched rooms are situated beneath a canopy of shady trees. The main area offers its guests a dining area with lounge as well as a traditional Boma and a wine cellar. For relaxation there are 2 plunge pools and even a spa.
