Jao Camp is situated in the Jao Reserve, an area of 60,000 hectares, in Botswana's Okavango Delta. The Jao reserve borders on the Moremi Game Reserve, to the west of Mombo Camp, on a densely wooded, oval-shaped island. This area comprises a superb variety of habitats, ranging from permanent waterways and lagoons on the one extreme to thick Kalahari soils on the other. The camp sleeps a maximum of 18 guests in unique and stunningly beautiful, luxury rooms. The whole of Jao is raised on wooden decks above the lush palms below and is beneath a dense canopy of ancient indigenous trees. Each room has thatched roofs with canvas walls; en suite facilities include a bath, flush toilet and basins, as well as an outdoor shower. Each room has a "sala" for midday siestas with a wonderful view. The main dining, lounge and 'pub' area is under cool thatch beneath the tree canopy. The camp has a pool and there ia also an outdoor "kgotla" (Botswana's version of a boma) for dining under the stars.
