Jao Camp is perched on a remote island in the private Jao Concession which borders the Moremi Game Reserve right in the heart of the Okavango Delta.
Built on raised wooden platforms in the shade of a grove of trees, the camp’s nine hand-crafted tents are both spacious and intimate. There are six twin bedded tents, two king sized bedded tents, and one family tent with two-bedrooms to choose from. Each tent is luxuriously appointed and includes a lounge and dressing area as well as an en-suite bathroom facility and an outdoor shower. The tent’s private sala serves as the perfect vantage point from which to take in the beauty of the surrounding landscape.
This luxury camp takes advantage of the Okavango’s diversity of habitats—ranging from floodplains to savanna to lagoons to wetlands—as well as the accompanying variety of wildlife. The world-famous Okavango Delta, a UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to plains game including lechwe, buffalo, zebra, and wildebeest that graze on the nearby Hunda Island that provides a large, permanently dry savanna. Of course, where these herds are, predators including lion and leopard are not far behind. Because of the Okavango’s distinctive water features, the region is also home to hippo, crocodile, and an incredible diversity of birdlife.
