Jack's Camp

Jack's Camp

Voted number one in Conde Naste’s Travel Awards for 2010 Favourite Overseas Leisure Hotel, Jack’s Camp is an oasis of luxury in the heart of Botswana’s Kalahari Desert. This vacation destination is located on the desolate Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, a seemingly endless stretch of desert whose size matches that of the entire country of Switzerland. In ancient times a massive lake, the pans are now depleted of life in the dry season, and travelers can explore ancient archaeological sites, discovering a myriad of fossils and documenting life before the lake’s extinction. During the rainy months, the landscape transforms as migrations of zebra, wildebeest, and multiple bird species, including flamingo, descend upon its renewed marshes and grasslands.

Designed in the safari style of the fashionable 1940’s, this remarkable camp offers the perfect blend of activity and respite. Ten spacious tents accommodate guests in pure luxury, with indoor and outdoor showers, en-suite bathrooms, a private deck, and beautiful Persian rugs. Amenities at the camp include a pool with pool pavilion, national museum, library, and tea tent for delectable afternoon sweets.

Highlights of your stay at Jack’s Camp will be the exciting quad bike excursions through the salt pans, communing with the camp’s friendly meerkat colony, dining on exquisite three course cuisine, and sighting the region’s unique concentration of wildlife, such as gemsbuck, brown hyena, aardvark, zebra, and flamingo.
