Jao Camp lies in the southern side of the floodplains of the Delta, an area with beautiful islands fringed with riverine forests.
Accommodation is provided in 9 spacious tents, each individually handcrafted. These twin-bedded canvas and thatched rooms are situated beneath a canopy of shady trees and have en suite facilities, as well as an outdoor shower.
Built on raised decks, each tent has a private sala for afternoon siestas and offers you wonderful views of the spectacular surrounding floodplains of Botswana.
In addition to the lounge and dining area, there are 2 plunge pools and an outdoor 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.
Mokoro, boat trips, fishing, day and night game drives and birding are usually on offer all year round due to the abundance of wildlife in Botswana.
There are 2 platform hides in the concession. During an unusually high flood season, game drives begin by boating out to a nearby Hunda Island where the vehicles are waiting, and the drive begins from there.
Huge herds of red lechwe can be seen, followed by their primary predator - prides of lion. Other game typical of Botswana include elephant, buffalo, leopard, tsessebe, zebra and wildebeest, hippo and crocodile.
