    Jao Camp ★★★★★

    Where the boundaries between land and water often blur… this is Jao Camp, this is the Okavango Delta, where some of the purest waters on Earth ebb and flow, descending from the Angolan highlands to the Kalahari Desert. Glide almost silently in a mokoro, a traditional dugout canoe, through a fluid garden of lilies. Spy a tiny painted reed frog up close, or elephants looming in the distance. Follow lion and other big cats across the floodplains, in pursuit of prolific antelope herds. Breakfast near a hippo-filled lagoon at dawn; brunch in watery shallows as countless red lechwe graze nearby; dine amidst a herd of zebra as a dazzling night sky is revealed. Feel your senses come alive, whether exploring on water or on land.

    Jao lies in the 60 000-hectare Jao Reserve in the heart of the Okavango, under a tree canopy on its own remote island, with renowned Moremi Game Reserve bordering on the east.

    Revamped in 2019, multiple-award winner Jao is a sculptural marvel of natural and recycled materials, of steel, wood, and glass, of towering, spacious interiors embracing the light, the bush. Offering spectacular land- and water-based game viewing, and extras like its spa, library, museum, and gallery. Jao comprises a main area elevated into the tree canopy, two exclusive villas, and five suites, all with private plunge pools, lounge and dining areas, and en-suite bathrooms, including indoor and outdoor showers. With views of the magnificent floodplains from almost everywhere, Jao’s a place of wonder and supreme serenity.
