In the heart of the Okavango, luxurious Jao is set amongst islands fringed with riverine forests and vast, floodplains with prolific wildlife. Shaded by a canopy of trees, the five spacious tents and two ultra-luxe villas offer en-suite facilities with both indoor and outdoor showers. Expansive views from the private sala at each tent make for a sumptuous setting for afternoon siestas.

Explore the mysterious channels of the Okavango Delta in a mokoro, a carved out canoe made from a native tree. Imagine gliding through water that mirrors the sky above, brushing past reeds which are home to tiny brightly colored frogs, approaching an elephant happily playing in the water, pods of hippos relaxing, and an amazing variety of birdlife.

In addition to the main lounge and dining area, there are two plunge pools and a boma for dining under the stars, complemented by selections from the excellent wine cellar. Jao 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.

The stars at night plus the sounds of the frogs, hippos and birds make for a magnificent stay at Jao.
