"Whilst we had some wonderful game sightings and stayed in a couple of great camps, I felt that this was the most disappointing trip to Southern Africa (out of 5) that I have had"

"A camp of considerably lower standard that any of the 20 camps I have stayed at on this and previous visits. I would not recommend it to anyone"

Jack's Camp

"Jack's Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 15 May 2008
"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"
