Wilderness Jao

Okavango Delta, Botswana


Stay at Wilderness Jao

The Okavango Delta is a UNESCO world heritage sight and the largest inland delta on earth. At Wilderness Jao, guests have the choice between five expansive safari suites or two incredible villas with their own staff and private plunge pools. You can explore the surroundings by boat, car or on guided walks with professional local guides. The boats you will be using are fibreglass ‘dugout’ canoes that glide effortlessly on the water.

Perhaps you would like breakfast outside alongside the wildlife, or drinks at sunset. Wilderness Jao will cater to your every need. Have an exciting sleep out under the stars or a relaxing massage at the exceptional spa. The activities are endless. There are also night drives, catch-and-release fishing, an incredible museum, a pool with a beautiful intricate bamboo structure and an atmospheric lounge and bar.

The Pitchers

We had the most amazing time! John Barclay and his team were very special and the mobile safari exclusive and superb. Moremi was very quiet with few other tourists – no more than a dozen other vehicles seen in four days. Macatoo was also excellent with good riding and game. We were so grateful for the help that you offered when our BA flights went wrong. Many thanks again for the superb service and recommendations which made for a great holiday.
