Jao Camp Wilderness Safaris, Botswana

In the afternoons you can laze on your private sala, beneath a shady canopy of green trees, and treat yourself to a gentle, afternoon siesta…

After the heat of the midday sun, a siesta might be just the thing. If, that is, the constant bird song and the excitement of seeing game wandering through the panoramic view from your raised deck doesn’t keep you awake! Put Jao Camp on the itinerary for your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Botswana and you’ll soon discover that having a touch of luxury in the heart of the Okavango Delta is the prime way to combine unrivalled wildlife observation with perfect relaxation.

You’ll find there’s an emphasis on comfort at Jao Camp, but the real luxury is being able to watch a wide range of wildlife enjoying an untouched, natural environment. Cranes dance in the shallows of the delta. Red lechwe and lion splash through the sparkling water…
