Jack's Camp

Jack's Camp

Jack's Camp is a Kalahari Desert camp located in the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans.

Accommodation is in spacious tents (7 Twin and 3 Double) each with en suite bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers. All tents have a private verandah on which to take in the wilderness.

During the wet season the landscape transforms as clouds of flamingo and other migratory birds descend to feed on the watery grasslands. Herds of zebra and wildebeest materialise, drawn by the fresh grass, and for several months the desert is teeming with game and predators.

The guides at Jack's Camp team up with a small group of Zu/'hoasi Bushmen to guide guests on morning walks and game drives. Venturing far into the centre of the Makgadikgadi, on quad bikes, guests are able to explore remote archaeological sites, periodically discovering never before documented fossil beds of extinct giant zebra and hippo. The fact that one can travel across the pans at great speed and still arrive nowhere only underlines their immensity.

A safari at Jack's Camp is also a complete desert experience focusing on species unique to the area such as aardvark, gemsbuck and springbuck. It is the only place where guests are virtually guaranteed to see the rare and elusive brown hyaena and be able to walk through the Kalahari with a gang of habituated but wild meerkats.
