Jack’s Camp is a safari lodge in the Makgadikgadi Pans, a vast and remote salt pan in Botswana’s Kalahari Desert.
Guests stay in luxurious tented accommodation tastefully decorated in a 1940’s style, each with their own private plunge pool, and indoor/outdoor showers. And you are sure to be kept occupied even at camp, with its private museum – housing one of Botswana’s most comprehensive archive collections – antique pool table and Africa’s only dedicated pool tent.
Expert guides are on hand to take you on game drives, guided walks, quad bike adventures, horse riding and cultural visits to the local Bushmen. After a packed day of activities, you can return to camp’s famous daily afternoon teas, served with velvet tea cosies and all.
Camp is perfectly located for encounters with the habituated meerkats, desert-adapted elephants as well as the elusive brown hyena or Kalahari lion. And from January to April you can marvel at the spectacular views of the seasonal migration of wildebeest and zebra – the second largest in Africa.
Jack’s Camp is more than just a safari lodge. It is a place where you can immerse yourself in the beauty and mystery of the Makgadikadi Pans and discover a different side of Botswana.
