Jack's Camp

Accommodation in Magadikgadi Pans

Star Rating:5

A visit to the area is essential for anyone interested in evolution and the origins and explanation of the Okavango Delta and Botswana’s big picture. Nestled in the awesome landscape of the Makgadikgadi Pans area of west-central Botswana, Jack's Camp appears like an oasis on the horizon. Located on a palm and acacia-studded desert "island," the camp is swallowed-up by the immensity of the surrounding Kalahari Desert ecosystem, which is unlike anything on earth. 

The grass savannah surrounding the camp is home to a diverse and unique desert ecosystem, full of uniquely evolving flora and fauna. When the rains returns (December - March), the herds follow, zebras and wildebeest in the thousands following their ancient migration routes to the newly formed grasses. This is a wonderful time to see the Pans, which form an immense shallow soda-lake teeming with bird life, including pink flamingos in huge numbers. 

The secret to Jack's Camp is the activity venue, of which guests are sworn to secrecy upon departure. Without divulging too much, guests will certainly enjoy the unusual approach to adventure in this spectacular setting, which boasts rich natural, archaeological and geological treasures! It is also a complete desert experience focusing on species unique to the area such as Gemsbok, brown hyena and springbok, as well as the geology, archeology and anthropology of the Kalahari and Makgadikgadi. Jack's and San Camp are the only places where Guests are guaranteed to see the rare and elusive brown hyena in the whole of Africa.
