San Camp is the sister camp of Jack's Camp and Camp Kalahari. It closed in 2010 and re-opened in late June 2011 after being completely rebuilt. The camp is set in a sparse forest of real fan palms, in grasslands on the edge of the spectacular Ntwetwe Pan, overlooking the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park.
Our view of San Camp
The camp was not yet finished on our most recent visit to the area in May 2011 – we were told the tents were still en-route all the way from India. But we thought the location and setting spectacular! The activities are similar, whether one stays at San, Jack’s or Camp Kalahari, so it’s likely that budget may have something of an influence over one’s choice of camp here. (Incidentally, San Camp sits somewhere in the middle of these three.) Based on our previous visits to San Camp before the rebuild, it’s current location and our understanding of what the new camp has to offer; we suspect this camp may appeal to the traveler looking for a more romantic set-up.
