Located on a large island in the heart of the Okavango, Jao Camp is a luxurious oasis of comfort. Jao's ideal position in Botswana allows guests to enjoy both land and water experiences depending on the time of year.

Jao's individually handcrafted tents overlook and embody the essence of the surrounding Delta, and offer sweeping views of the water, swaying reeds, leaping lechwe, and graceful cranes. Luxurious and spacious, the tents are tastefully decorated and expertly designed for optimal relaxation. Each features canvas and thatched rooms, en-suite facilities, outdoor shower, and private sala.

The main area of the camp features an elaborate two-story building which offers a lounge and dining area, two plunge pools, library, curio shop, boma for dining under the stars, and an excellent wine cellar. An award-winning spa and gymnasium are also available.

Remote Jao is often surrounded by spectacular herds of lechwe, as well as lions, leopards, tsessebe, giraffe, elephant, hippo, and crocodile. Ideal for those seeking relaxation in a safari-style setting, Jao delights its guests with an expert staff and numerous activities. Join in on a Mokoro, boat ride through the delta, seasonal catch-and-release fishing, day and night game drives, and seasonal sleep-outs for game viewing.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
