JAO CONCESSION LODGES & CAMPS IN OKAVANGO DELTA
Jao Concession Safari & Tour Accommodations
Close to the Panhandle in the Delta’s north-west, the Jao Concession’s vegetation varies from east to west: from the magical Jao Flats – picturesque floodplains with lush palm islands and riparian forest – to the dryer Hunda Island, covered in acacia and mopane woodland and the largest area of dry land locally during the annual floods. Around the Jao Flats spectacular herds of red lechwe are followed by the primary predators – lion and leopard. Other game includes wildebeest, tsessebe, giraffe, elephant, hippo and crocodile. Sitatunga are seen occasionally, and sightings of spotted-necked otter are regular. The drier habitats in the west harbour similar species with greater concentrations of zebra and wildebeest. Birding is exceptional with large concentrations of endangered Wattled Crane, Slaty Egret, Rosy-throated Longclaw, Pel’s Fishing-Owl, and Lesser Jacana on the eastern side; the western drier areas are ideal for Crimson-breasted Shrike, Dickinson’s Kestrel and Meyer’s Parrots.

What are our Customers saying about our safari holidays?
On behalf of myself, my wife and my two adult daughters, I want to sincerely thank you and AfricanMecca Safaris for our fabulous recent safari. Everything you promised exceeded our expectations and was superb, which is saying a lot since this was our second trip, having had a wonderful Botswana Safari 10 years ago. Do not ever hesitate to use me as a reference.

Chobe was delightful, less than half full. Sussi and Chuma, very nice, again only 13 people in all. All the game drives and river cruises were excellent. We had great weather. The ability to get really close is in inspiring. EVERYWHERE we went, the people were warm, helpful and charming. Thank you so much. We will be recommending your services to all.

Raza Visram at AfricanMecca planned the most amazing trip for my friend and I. I wanted to go to 4 countries in 15 days and he made it happen. It was an aggressive itinerary and Raza planned it so well, that the transitions were seamless. The last leg of the trip was Botswana for another Safari and we stayed at the most beautiful lodge. The excitement in seeing the animals so closely is indescribable.

I had a wonderful trip to Africa and I would highly recommend your company.I have been to Africa many times and I have never had such wonderful service. The guide and safari vehicle were both great and all the lodges were outstanding. We will be going to Africa again the year after next and I assure you I will be contacting you. Thanks again for arranging such a great trip.

Our Botswana safari was FANTASTIC! It truly was a luxury, but rustic enough, safari. We really loved our trip! We saw everything here. From lions to leopards to elephants to buffalos. Our guide, Rams was truly amazing. He really knew his stuff! While on the bush walks we encountered zebras, warthogs and much more. Thanks for your help! We will definitely do another trip within a year.
