A real adventure in an unreal world

With accolades from the likes of Condé Nast Traveller and Jeremy Clarkson, Jack’s Camp is certainly one of the world’s most extreme desert vacation destinations. A visit to Jack's Camp is something out of the ordinary. Set in what seems like the middle of nowhere along the awe-inspiring Ntwetwe Pan of Botswana’s Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, this incredible lodge 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.

Stay in one of the camp’s East African canvas tents that are scattered along a palm grove in this arid desert landscape. Offering 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 verandah. At mealtimes, indulge in fine dining carefully crafted by the on-site culinary team.
