Jao Camp
The Okavango Delta

Jao is simply superb. The ‘Ritz’ of the Okavango, its interwoven floodplains, islands and endless skies provide the perfect stage for incredible wildlife and birdlife. The 9 customised luxury guest tents share Jao Island with the spectacular main area, which features two plunge pools, a library and an outdoor boma for evenings of traditional food, song and dance. There is a delightful central entertainment room which serves as a sitting and dining area with plenty of room for private dining, children’s entertainment and for watching wildlife documentaries or conducting lectures. Make the most of the many luxuries offered, such as the beautiful star bed sleep-out or a visit to the spa to feel utterly restored.

Tucked under magnificent African ebony trees is the impressive and enchanting Jao Spa, a perfect setting for a little indulgence. There is a full menu of therapies from facials and manicures to a wide range of massage options. There is also a fully equipped gym available.

The safari activities at Jao are just as impressive, in an area rich in game, birds, reptiles and water-based wildlife. Modes of game viewing include mokoro trips, boating trips along the waterways, morning and afternoon game drives, night drives and a super raised ‘hide’ a 20-minute drive from camp – a magical spot to watch the comings and goings of wildlife. The hide is also used for ‘sleep-outs’ for a maximum of 2 people on a queen-size bed with a large mosquito net (and a guide very close by!).

Client Testimonials

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10
- Anonymous, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
