4Cs Projects at Jao Camp

As a camp dedicated to the sustainability of conservation and community, Jao Camp is intimately involved in projects which support these principles.


Tubu Joint Management Committee

Jao Concession holders and the University of Botswana (under the auspices of the Biokavango Project) launched a committee to reduce conflict between the community and the Jao Concession – specifically with regard to curbing poaching and over-fishing.

Green Operating Systems

In keeping with our objective of reducing energy consumption and fuel use, Jao Camp’s accommodation is solar powered, with electricity and hot water provided via solar panels and inverters. Waste water (sewage and grey water) is treated in an Above Ground Sewage Plant, ensuring that the water is clean before being allowed to enter the natural environment.
