A visit to Jack's Camp is certainly something out of the ordinary. Set in what seems like the middle of nowhere, this camp along the awe-inspiring Ntwetwe Pan of the Botswana’s Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, is quite unique.
The rains that transform the landscape attract herds of zebra and wildebeest and the ever-looming predators. Flamingos and migratory birds also arrive in their thousands and just like that, the desert comes alive. Jack's Camp allows you to discover all this and the ancient hunting ways and rituals of the Bushmen. Learn about a fascinating culture that is fast becoming extinct and marvel at how they live off the land and track animals.
An oasis if ever there was one, the camp’s 10 East African canvas Tents are scattered along a palm grove in this arid desert landscape. Boasting en-suite bathrooms with indoor and outdoor showers, Persian rugs and cool cotton sheets, the tents cosset you from the rugged wilderness yet display it all to you from the private veranda. The contrast could not be more pronounced or more exhilarating.
