Jack’s Camp is located deep in the Kalahari Desert on the edge of the Makgadikgadi Pans, the largest saltpans in the world. This classic desert safari camp accommodates 20 guests in ten large walk-in tents, each with en-suite bathroom with flush toilet and shower.
Accommodation is comfortable and 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 may be sightings of 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 Flamingos. Activities are conducted in open 4×4 vehicles custom designed for this terrain and accompanied by knowledgeable guides. In the dry winter months, all-purpose ATV vehicles (a four wheeler motorcycle/Quad bikes) are available, allowing guests to travel across 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 offered.
