Jack's Camp is spread out beneath a grove of mokolwane palm trees with vast views across open expanses of Botswana’s immense Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, complete with patches of grassy savannah and photogenic palm islands. It’s one of Africa’s costlier camps, and takes pride in its motto for the experience that it aims to offer: “Give them what they never knew they wanted." ***STOP PRESS*** Due to late rains, the quad biking activity is not yet up and running. This activity will be resumed when the pans are completely dry, which is anticipated to be around mid-May.
Our view of Jack's Camp
Jack’s Camp is a high-quality camp offering a unique experience in a captivating and unusual landscape. Do expect some luxury, romance and remoteness; don’t expect electric lights or lots of big game. The close meerkat encounters, the archeology (yes, really!) and the odd surprise were the highlights for us, and it contrasts strongly with Botswana’s lush Okavango – so can really add to a trip. That said, Jack’s is expensive, as are the transfer flights to reach it, so many question its value. Given how unique it and its sister camps are, we find it an impossible question to answer.
