After undergoing a complete renovation, Wilderness Safaris’ Jao Camp has reopened in Botswana’s Okavango Delta.
In addition to five tented suites, Jao has revealed two new exclusive villas, each with its own private vehicle, guide, chef and butler.
The camp includes a new main area, elevated into the tree canopy, with the new villas and suites all featuring private plunge pools, lounge, dining areas and en-suite bathrooms including indoor and outdoor showers.
Jao’s new spa has two new circular treatment rooms that have been furnished with rosewood-clad ceilings and rosewood floors, surrounded by ponds. There is a fully equipped gym with a main pool that projects over the floodplain.
The camp also has a new Centre of Knowledge Museum and Gallery, with a two-storey high giraffe skeleton, geographical maps and Okavango history, and more.
Jao is 100% solar powered. The suites and villas will be cooled with an indirect Climate Wizard evaporative cooler, using a fraction of the energy of conventional air conditioning. They have also been fitted with self-igniting Calore fireplaces, which use pellets made of sawdust left over from working natural wood, without any additives or caking agents.
