Jack’s camp

The sandscape is stark but awe-inspiring

Jack’s Camp is located deep in the Kalahari Desert, on the edge of the Makgadikgadi Pans – the largest saltpans on earth. Jack’s Camp is a classic desert safari camp accommodating just twenty guests in ten large walk-in luxury tents, each with en suite bath facilities. Accommodation is comfortable and elegant and furnished in traditional East African 1940s safari style, all in keeping with the character of the Makgadikgadi.

Facilities include a mess tent for dining and a tea tent with Persian carpet cushions for socializing.

After the rains (December to April), there can be enormous herds of Wildebeest, Zebra and Springbok – with the accompanying predators – on the open grasslands. The summer rains also leave a warm shallow layer of water that entices Waterfowl and Pink Flamingo.

Activities are conducted in open 4×4 vehicles custom designed for this terrain and accompanied by knowledgeable guides. In the dry winter season, all-purpose ATV vehicles (a four wheeler motorcycle/Quad bike) are available, allowing guests to explore the saltpans.

Walks with a Bushman tracker and a visit to Chapman’s Baobab – the historical baobab tree used by Livingstone, Selous and other early explorers – are also on offer.
