Jao Camp

Basic Information

Jao Camp is located in the western part of the Okavango Delta. This luxury lodge operated by Wilderness Safaris is a sophisticated refuge with unmatched wilderness experiences. The main campground includes five cottages elevated aboveground and two exclusive villas. The lodge has undergone complete renovations in 2019. Each villa now has a living room/bedroom and a large bathroom with a wardrobe, as well as a spacious terrace with an outdoor shower and a private pool. Two Jao family villas, large enough for up to four persons, come with an exclusive vehicle, guide, chef, and butler. The small spa is a perfect relaxation haven with a complete offering of spa and cosmetic therapies, from facial treatments to manicure. The camp also has a swimming pool for afternoon relaxation as well as a wine cellar with excellent African wines. The facility also features a boma enclosure for dining under the stars. The lodge offers a comfortable lounge and restaurant serving delicious meals made with the freshest ingredients – the perfect place for private dining, entertaining the kids, and watching wildlife documentaries. Just twenty minutes from the camp, guests can enjoy sleeping in the wilderness under the open sky. Thanks to the diverse surroundings, Jao Camp can offer both water and land activities during the day. One of the best ways to explore the Okavango Delta and its magnificent wildlife is travelling via traditional mokoro canoe.
