Here you’ll find nine spacious tents, each individually handcrafted. These twin-bedded canvases 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 has a private sala for afternoon siestas and offers views of the surrounding floodplains of Botswana.
In addition to the lounge and dining area, Jao Camp has two plunge pools and an outdoor Boma for dining under the stars, complemented by wines from an excellent wine cellar.
There are two 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. 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.
