Features & Highlights
Jao Camp Summary
Jao Camp Description
Guests are accommodated in nine large and spacious rooms that are entirely raised on wooden decks, with lush palms below and beneath a canopy of indigenous trees. Each of the unique and beautiful twin-bedded canvas and thatched rooms has been individually handcrafted, with en-suite facilities which include a bath, flush toilet and an additional outside shower under the stars for those more adventurous guests who want to shower closer to nature, as well as a “sala” for afternoon siestas with a view and a breeze.
A raised walkway connects the rooms to the dining room and lounge area. There is a plunge pool and an outdoor ‘boma’ for dining under the stars, as well as an excellent wine cellar. Jao also offers a Salon with a fulltime therapist, offering a wide range of massage treatments. Jao also has a Gym, equipped with a cross trainer, rowing machine, stationary bike, yoga mats, exercise ball and free weights.
ACTIVITIES & WILDLIFE
Luxury safari activities at Jao include Mokoro (dug out canoe) excursions, boating, fishing, day and night game drives, massage therapy, fishing or lazing by the poolside. If the area has a large flood, guests are transported by boat to a large island, called Hunda Island, where the game drives start. Lion, Cheetah & Leopard are plentiful, while Tsessebe, Red Lechwe, Zebra and Wildebeest dot the floodplains. The lagoons are home to Hippo and Crocodile and the permanent waters attract large numbers of waterfowl. Sitatunga can also be tracked silently by Mokoro.
Access to this area is only by aircraft.
