Jao Camp

Premium An extremely luxurious lodge or permanent tented camp (five-star) with superb cuisine and excellent service, with swimming pools, and many with private \" plunge\" pools (small swimming pools) for each chalet or tent. Lodges and chalets are air-conditioned, while the tents may be air-conditioned or fan-cooled.

Jao Camp is a premier property with five standard suites and two two-bedroom villas. Each of the unique canvas and thatched suites has been handcrafted under the direction of renowned architects Sylvio Rech and Leslie Carstens. The rooms are built under a canopy of shady trees and feature twin beds, an en suite bathroom, hot and cold running water, a large bath and double vanity. There is an additional outside shower under the stars for those more adventurous who want to shower closer to nature. An outdoor deck invites you to enjoy midday siestas or take a dip in your private plunge pool. Rooms are raised off the ground and offer wonderful views of the surrounding flood plains. A raised walkway connects the rooms to the dining room and lounge area.

Activities include day and night game drives in open vehicles, mokoro (dugout canoe) trips to explore the crystal clear channels, islands and waterways (water levels permitting). There is also a spa facility.
