Providing the ultimate Delta water experience in the heart of the Okavango, luxurious Jao Camp is set in an area where islands fringed with riverine forests meet vast productive floodplains.
Accommodation at Jao Camp - Premier Camp:
A portfolio of elegant camps found in the best possible areas in Africa and characterized by unashamed (but appropriate and sustainable) luxury. These camps also have an explicit purpose or 'reason for being' and are crafted to be to be relevant to and in harmony with its location. The camps range in size from 3 to 11 individually stylized rooms.
Shaded by a canopy of trees, the nine spacious and beautifully-designed tents offer en-suite facilities with indoor and outdoor showers. Expansive views from the private sala at each tent make for a sumptuous setting for afternoon siestas.
In addition to the main lounge and dining area, there are two plunge pools and a boma for dining under the stars, complemented by wines from an excellent wine cellar. Jao Camp also has a spa where a wide range of massage therapies are offered and a gym for the more active. The camp itself perfectly mirrors the beauty of the Delta and allows an effortless entry into the wonders of this pristine wetland paradise.
