Jack's Camp review
Apart from the meerkats, we had a fairly dull time.
We were furious to be shown to a room with a tiny double bed which was not much more than 4 feet wide when we had asked for a king size. After our initial complaint, they offered to put a small lower single bed in the room but, when Andie refused to accept this, they finally gave us a room with two similarly sized beds
No idea if it was just the "luck of the drawer" but this was the first camp (out of about 20!) that I have ever stayed in at which I took an active dislike to several other guests
I repeat, if it hadn't been for the meerkats, I would not recommend othes to go here
Expert Africa comments
We’re sorry that these travellers didn’t enjoy Jack’s Camp as much as we would have hoped – although glad they enjoyed the meerkats there.
The furniture at Jack's Camp is a collection of antiques, many of which are unique, which helps to make it a very interesting, and slightly quirky, camp to stay in. These antiques include the four-poster beds, which are often smaller here than the queen-size, or even king-size, beds which are increasingly being used in some of Botswana’s better camps.
If you have a preference for double, twin beds, or a particularly large-sized bed – or anything else that’s important to you about your trip – then please let us know when you book the trip. Tell us about what is important to you and also write your special requests on our booking form. Then we can take these into account as we plan and book your trip – and we’ll always do our best to get what you want where we possibly can.
Often specific requests will influence the camps that we suggest for you visit. Hence, ideally, we need to know about these before you book your trip. If we learn about your likes and dislikes only after your holiday, there is often nothing that we can do.
Jack's Camp review
Knowledgable helpful guides. Salt Pans very different from other places we've been in Africa (especially after dark!).
All staff very friendly and helpful. The plunge pool was welcome in the heat of the afternoon. Enjoyed the surprise element of the activity programme.
We both enjoyed driving quad bikes even though we had never done that before.
