Jao Camp

    Jao Camp’s Balinese-themed buildings were constructed without cutting any trees; instead only fallen timber was used. Inside the nine tented pavilions, elevated safari-style off the ground, are hardwood floors and capacious porcelain baths. Mokoros (dugout canoes) take guests on game-spotting excursions through some of the most beautiful and intricate channels anywhere in the Okavango. Accommodations The nine tented pavilions are connected to the main lodge by elevated walkways (to discourage unwanted visitors). Recreation Jao’s spa is the best in the bush (try the African Aroma Shea Butter treatment). Dining Dinner may include such specialties as ostrich fan fillets and Botswana beef. Worth Diversion Instead of riding in a Land Rover by day to search for predators, seek them out at night, when they are most active. Rates From $660 to $1,235 per person, per day.
