Jack’s Camp (Makgadigadi Pans, Kalahari Desert, Botswana)

Imagine travelling at speed for hours on quad bikes from Jack’s Camp and arriving...nowhere! Jack’s perfectly showcases the savage and haunting beauty of the African wilderness and is located deep in the Kalahari Desert in a palm grove that seems like an idyllic mirage at the edge of the Makgadigadi National Park, the largest salt pans in the world. A place in Africa beyond imagination!

This is a sophisticated yet in harmony with nature camp (no electricity, just pure silence) that captures the classic 1940’s East African style. A perfect retreat for exclusive executive groups always in search of something “different....unique.....startling.” This is the authentic magic.

Jack’s has 10 spacious, stylish en-suite tents, each with inside and outside shower, and the hub is a canvas pavilion with pool overlooking a vista that is forever. These pans are a relic of one of the world’s largest super-lakes, the size of Switzerland that dried up thousands of years ago.

You may reach Jack’s by road or air from Maun, which is at the heartbeat of Botswana’s legendary safari camps. Three nights on a wild, wild safari and then two nights at Jack would truly be a unique and life-enriching experience.

In 2007 the acclaimed BBC motoring journalist Jeremy Clarkson visited Jack’s and wrote: “I loved it more than any other journey I’ve ever made. It’s even better than driving an Enzo Ferrari.”  We’ve got lots more enticing information on Jack’s....so talk to us soon!
