Full Day by Day Itinerary
On arrival in Maun, after clearing customs and immigration, collect your luggage and proceed to the Arrivals Hall. On arrival, after clearing customs and immigration, you will be met and assisted to your scheduled charter flight to Jao Camp where you will stay for three nights. Arrive in time for lunch and an afternoon activity.
Enjoy two full days of game viewing activities at Jao Camp. Jao’s position, amongst waterways and lagoons, yet close to dry Kalahari woodland, means you can enjoy both water and land experiences, depending on the time of year.
There is no better way of viewing the Delta and its wildlife than by traditional mokoro (dugout canoe). At Jao we have a number of these – as well as two glass-bottomed mekoro for an entirely out of this world experience!
Boating trips in 8 seater boats in the waterways to the east of camp allow for good game viewing in the channels further away.
Morning and afternoon game drives are offered in open 4×4 Land Rovers each accommodating a maximum of seven people allowing each guest a window seat. A 45-minute boat ride from Jao Camp, you can enjoy a full-day game drive, along with a picnic, on wildlife-rich Hunda Island. Night drives with spotlights allow you to find those nocturnal animals you wouldn’t see during the day.
A raised hide located about 20 minutes from camp is a great place to watch the comings and goings of wildlife. The hide can also be used for sleep-outs for a maximum of four people at a time. The hide is equipped with a long-drop toilet.
Tucked under magnificent African ebony trees overlooking lush waterways, the Jao Spa is an enchanting setting where you can rest and feel utterly restored. Here, we offer a full menu of therapies from facials to manicures, and a range of massage options.
Fishing with a limited supply of basic equipment (spinner rods and a small range of lures) is on offer seasonally on a catch-and-release basis.
After breakfast and a morning activity you will be transferred ot the airstrip for your scheduled charter flight to Kings Pool Camp where you will stay for three nights. Arrive in time for lunch and an afternoon activity.

Morning and afternoon Morning and afternoon game drives are offered in open 4×4 Land Rovers. Night drives with spotlights allow you to find those nocturnal animals you wouldn’t see during the day.
On request, nature walks with skilled, armed guides are wonderful ways of getting close to nature and observing the smaller things you miss when traveling by vehicle.
There are two hides in the vicinity of Kings Pool from which to view and photograph animals and birds. One is located at the western end of camp and the other is an original underground hide, with the water at eye level.
Barge cruises along the Linyanti River are on offer on the colonial-style Queen Sylvia barge, generally with sundowners in hand. The river is ideal for numerous and diverse species of birds and are a magnet for game in the dry winter months. * This activity is water level and weather dependent.

Birding is outstanding at Kings Pool Camp, with the Linyanti Concession an internationally recognized Important Bird Area (IBA), particularly for birds of prey like Dickinson’s kestrel and waterbirds. In summer southern carmine bee-eaters nest near camp.
