BOTSWANA

Jao

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.

"Thank you for a superb job of planning and organizing as everything went smoothly. The country of South Africa so captivated me that my husband and I are already planning a return trip next summer. The only thing to rival the bush and animals was the food. The experience of South Africa is like no other and its effect is difficult to express. I can only encourage others to make the venture."
Laurel J. Snelling, Physician Assistant Associates PLLC.
"I've been traveling all over the world for twenty years, but my trip this month to Africa put together by your firm was the smoothest and best planned trip I've ever made. The various places we stayed were outstanding and the uniqueness of each location added to the charm and atmosphere of the trip. The service I received from the guides, drivers and hotel attendants made me feel like royalty. The most impressive part was how smooth everything worked. Thanks again for your hard work, dedication and professionalism. I look forward to another trip with you."
