About Jack's Camp, Kalahari Desert
Jack’s Camp is located in the heart of the Kalahari Desert, next to the largest saltpans in the world. Set amidst palm trees, this remote camp aims to teach about the archaeology and anthropology of the area.
This stunning location was discovered by explorer Jack Bousfield in the 1960s - a legacy continued today by his son, Ralph. Built in traditional, 1940s East African safari style, Jack's Camp is appointed with rich, Persian rugs and crisp cotton sheets.
The varied activities here aim to give guests an in-depth understanding of the area. The wet season in the Kalahari Desert attracts thousands of pink flamingos and herds of zebra and wildebeest, and in the dry season, guests have the opportunity to explore the immense Makgadikgadi salt pans on quad bikes.
Jack's Camp is located in prime hyena territory.
