Jack's Camp is beautifully constructed in a very classical safari style. It has ten spacious, Meru-style tents, each with en suite bathroom, private outdoor shower and lots of early-settler charm. The camp is spread out beneath a grove of Mokolwane palm trees with vast views across grassy savannah fringed by palm islands. It’s well situated to experience the desolate beauty of the immense Makgadikgadi salt pans, discover the desert-adapted wildlife that survives here and learn about the culture and traditions of the Zu/’hoasi Bushmen.
Our view of Jack's Camp
Jack’s Camp is a unique experience in many ways. It offers an attractive blend of classic safari adventure, luxury, romance and remoteness. Though this isn’t usually a destination to see great concentrations of wildlife, the activities provide a variety of experiences and the landscapes of the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park are hauntingly beautiful. The environments and the desert-adapted wildlife here are a remarkable contrast to the more lush regions of the country, providing a fascinating addition to any Botswana safari. Though some may find the lack of electrical lighting in the tents an inconvenience, we feel it adds to the romantic classic safari feel of this camp.
