The Makgadikgadi Pans are at the southern end of the Great Rift Valley that runs the length of Africa. The pans are also reputed to have once been part of the Zambezi Valley before geographical changes shifted the flow to its current course. This is traditional outdoor safari life, albeit with a few home comforts. Jack’s is the only desert camp in the Kalahari and overlooks the huge horizons of the famous Makgadikgadi National Park. Evoking the original East African safaris, Jack’s Camp is professionally run and comfortable. Rustic tent accommodation features individual open-air private bathrooms complete with flush toilets and showers suspended in the palm trees. Persian rugs, bone handled silver, copper basins, damask tablecloths and cotton sheets add to the comfort of guests.

Guests can enjoy a comprehensive desert experience and the opportunity to walk with Bushmen trackers who provide a unique connection between their culture and the natural environment. During game walks and drives, zoologists and biologists explain the adaptations of desert wildlife to the area.

The adventurous camper can take quad bikes into the saltpans and explore remote archaeological sites. In the wet season, the pans fill with water forming one of the most important wetland sites in Africa and attracting flocks of flamingo and waterfowl as well as Southern Africa’s last surviving zebra and wildebeest migration. This is also one of the only places where one of Africa’s rarest and most endangered carnivores, the brown Hyaena may be seen.
