In a private reserve in the northern reaches of the Okavango Delta lies Jao Camp, a cluster of nine private thatched tents raised up on polished wooden decks. Beneath the overhanging canopy of trees, the deluxe canvas-walled tents feature en-suite facilities,
private salas for resting, and an unobstructed view of the expansive landscape. Jao Camp is highly regarded for the lovely architecture of the camp and because the land on the reserve ranges from dry Kalahari to the marshy Okavango waterways, giving guests a more varied experience. Game drives and water-based activities like mokoro outings take up the bulk of the day, and upon returning to camp, guests can take a dip in the pool, enjoy a massage, and then dine in the outdoor boma at night. The open-air common lounge showcases an impressive collection of African art and artifacts, and the elegant setting is a comfortable place to relax and mingle with other guests.
