Jao Camp is a Botswana safari lodge that is situated on a remote island in the Okavango Delta. The luxurious Jao Camp is only accessible by light aircraft so other than your fellow guests and lodge staff, you won't encounter another human, just raw nature.
Jao Camp has nine stylish canvas and thatch tents with en-suite bathrooms and outdoor open showers - the best way to shower in the bush. The spacious tents are individually decorated and set under a canopy of shady trees. There are nine outdoor salas at Jao Camp designed to provide a cool and peaceful escape for an afternoon siesta away from your suite. Relax on your veranda at Jao Camp on lazy afternoons and soak up the surrounding floodplains or slip into one of two refreshing plunge pools.
There is a Platform Hide on the Jao floodplain which can be used for sleep-outs if you stay at Jao Camp for three nights or longer. It sleeps a maximum of four guests and has bed rolls, mosquito nets and long-drop facilities. Guests at Jao Camp are transferred to the Hide after dinner and stay overnight with their guide, a radio, torch and a flask of tea/coffee! Return to camp in the morning for breakfast. Dinner at Jao Camp can be arranged at the Hide if requested in advance.
In between game viewing at Jao Camp, enjoy a spa treatment with hippos grunting only meters away!
Water levels of the Okavango Delta determine the activities at Jao Camp. It can get very dry in the winter months and flooded in the summer so activities at Jao vary depending on when you visit. The activities include mokoro (dug-out canoe) excursions, boats, fishing, day and night game drives, and guided walks. During an unusually high flood season at Jao Camp, game drives begin by boating out to a nearby island - Hunda Island - where the vehicles are waiting.
