Situated on a tree and palm covered island which overlooks vast golden grasslands of the Makgadikgadi National Park in the Kalahari Desert sits Jack’s Camp. Offering a unique opportunity to explore the Pans and gain an insight into the Kalahari with its truly unique ecosystem, one can also experience the ancient traditions and culture of the San people. The Makgadikgadi, an extinct lake bigger than Switzerland, is one of the most important wetland sites remaining in Africa.
Ten spacious and stylish canvas tents with en-suite bathrooms and indoor and outdoor showers are fashioned in classical style, set into a palm grove creating an oasis of civilization in what can be the harshest of stark environments. Persian rugs underfoot and cool cotton sheets form a striking contrast with the rugged wilderness viewed from the comfort of one’s own verandah. During the wet season the landscape transforms. Clouds of flamingos and other migratory birds descend from the heavens to decorate the watery grasslands. Herds of zebra and wildebeest materialise, drawn by the lush grass, and for several months, the desert is teeming with game and predators.
