A classic desert safari camp, with spacious tents.
Jack's Camp is located deep in the Kalahari Desert on the edge of the Makgadikgadi Pans - the largest saltpans in the world.
Accommodation & Facilities
The ten, spacious tents at Jack’s Camp are beautifully constructed in a classic safari-style, each with en-suite private showers (indoor and out), a washbasin and flush toilet.
Set amidst palm trees, Jack’s Camp is set around a large, central dining tent and a Persian-style 'tea tent', which comes complete with a small library of books, fascinating local artefacts, comfy cushions and rugs.
Good food served at individual tables, indoors and outside.
Big game on this side of the Makgadikgadi National Park is scarce for much of the year, and so the unique activities here aim to give an understanding of the area's geology, archaeology and anthropology, as well as a chance to observe its wildlife; a den of hyenas and family of meerkats have been observed in recent years, with the summer rains enticing waterfowl and flamingos.
Jack’s Camp offers guided walks and wildlife drives in customised 4X4 vehicles. In the dry winter months, quad bikes are available, allowing guests to travel across the saltpans.
All children are welcome. Children under 8 years old require a separate vehicle.
