Jacks Camp

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The Jack's Camp is located on a prime spot on the edge of the magnificent Makgadikgadi Pans in Botswana.

Unforgettable views over the glittering salt pans as well as the shimmering expanses of the dry earth crust can be admired here making for a memorable exploration experience.

Guests may enjoy a truly relaxing and unique experience in this oasis of style and old-world glamour. The landscape which surrounds this luxurious oasis if of savage beauty featuring a very remote landscape.

The ten, Bedouin-style tents at Jack's Camp nestle under a canopy of molokwane palms. Persian rugs on polished floors, beautifully draped walls and comfortable four-poster beds make for an extraordinary accommodation experience.

From the private verandas, one overlooks the arid landscape, where salt and sun-baked plains go as far as the eye can see. The bathrooms offer free-standing, copper bathtubs and wooden throne toilets.

The mess tent features maps, photos, vintage artefacts and manuscripts of the Bousfield family. An antique pool table, a library and bar are also available. Dining is completed by an outstanding selection of fine wines. This camp features the most unique swimming pool on the continent. Set in a tent, guests may enjoy the refreshing and cooling waters during the warm afternoons.

Exploring meerkats in their natural habitat is a must when visiting this area of Botswana. Guests have the chance to get up close and personal to groups of wild meerkats. Many other desert-adapted species can be admired during the safari drives and the walks with Bushmen. The swimming pool pavilion offers a relaxing swim to travellers.

During High/Dry Season which runs from 16th April – 31st October, thrilling quad bike safaris can be enjoyed.
