Fodor's Review

Spectacular Jao (as in "now"), a pure Hollywood-meets-Africa fantasy, is on a densely wooded island in a private concession bordering the Moremi Wildlife Reserve. Land and water activities are available, depending on the seasonal water levels, so you can take a day or night game drive in an open 4x4, glide in a mokoro through rippling meadows of water lilies, chug along hippo highways in a motorboat, or go on a guided walk. You'll see lots of predators, especially lions, which live here in the highest concentration in the country, according to a wildlife census. Accommodations are individual spacious tents with superb views over the vast floodplains. Private bath facilities include an indoor and outdoor shower, flush toilet, and Victorian claw-foot tub. Rare African artifacts decorate the multitiered wood interior of the main building. The food is delicious and the standard of service is superb.
