Hidden within the pulsating heart of the Okavango Delta, Jao Camp promises an intimate and sophisticated safari experience unlike any other. This Okavango Delta safari camp stakes its rightful claim on an island fringed with riverine forests and circled in shimmering floodplains.
The panoramic views will leave you in awe, but it is the camp design that will quickly (and frequently) catch your eye. The main area consists of an elaborate two-storey wooden structure elevated right up into the tree canopy. There's a lounge, a dining area, plunge pools, and a traditional boma complemented by an excellent wine cellar, and the list doesn't end there…
The award-winning spa and gym epitomise the high levels of luxury at Jao, but what we're most excited about is the museum and gallery. That's right; this camp boasts its very own museum and gallery which resembles something right out of Jurassic Park, complete with a life-sized giraffe skeleton in the centre of the room. Luckily, the only raptors to be found in these parts are of the feathered kind often seen circling over the camp.
As it stands, there are two exclusive villas and five twin rooms at Jao Camp, along with a range of dynamic safari activities. The activities are well organised and varied. You can take a pick from mokoro rides, boat excursions (both depending on flood levels), seasonal catch-and-release fishing, guided bush walks, day and night game drives.
