Jack's Camp - Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, Kalahari Desert, Botswana

Rooms & Suites: 10

Jack's Camp is located deep in the Kalahari Desert on the edge of the Makgadikgadi Pans, the largest saltpans in the world.

Jack's is furnished in a traditional East African 1940s, comfortable safari style. Facilities include a mess tent for dining and a tea tent with Persian carpet cushions for socializing. A safari at Jack's is the complete desert experience, focusing on desert adapted wildlife as well as the geology, archaeology of the Kalahari and Makgadikgadi. Quad bike excursions onto the vast saltpans, walking safaris with Bushman trackers, an interactive encounter with a meerkat family and a rare opportunity to see one of Africa's most elusive carnivores, the brown hyena, are just some of the activities to be enjoyed while at this original camp. Ten private, spacious tents, classically styled, are built on decks and set in a palm grove. Each tent has a beautiful ensuite bathroom with both indoor and outdoor showers.
