Jewel of the Delta
Welcome to Jao, an Okavango oasis of luxury and calm encapsulating the very essence of Botswana’s inland-delta wonderland. Within the private Jao Reserve’s 61 000-plus hectares, Jao Camp promises some 830 hectares of pristine exclusivity per guest – more than almost any other reserve in the country. Multiple-award winner Jao is a sculptural marvel of natural and recycled materials, of towering, spacious interiors embracing the light. Here, some of the purest waters on Earth ebb and flow, sustaining this part of the Kalahari Desert, and an abundance of wildlife: predators aplenty, extraordinary big game, specialised aquatic antelope and an absolute cornucopia of birdlife. Ideal for multi-generational travellers, Jao’s warm and knowledgeable staff will quickly work their way into your entire family’s hearts.
Jao Camp – Essence of the Delta
The new Jao Camp is a superlative, high-end safari offering encapsulating the Delta in its design, décor and colours, incorporating a unique botanical theme with special emphasis placed on the area’s water lily. As a place dedicated to the conservation of the Okavango, Jao’s Spa and treatments speak to the holistic health of its guests, which resonates with the health of the Okavango’s ecosystem, where around the immense Jao Flats, spectacular herds of red lechwe are followed by their predators – lion and leopard.
