Voted number one in Conde Naste’s travel awards for 2010 Favorite Overseas Leisure Hotel, Jack’s Camp is an authentic oasis of luxury in the heart of Botswana’s Kalahari Desert.
Designed in the safari style of the fashionable 1940’s, this remarkable camp offers the perfect blend of activity and respite. Ten spacious tents comprising seven twin and three double tents accommodate guests in pure luxury and are decorated with Persian rugs and exotic Bedouin furniture. Each tent features an en-suite bathroom with both an indoor and an outdoor shower. There is also a private deck, perfect for relaxing and taking in the salt pans. Other amenities include a lounge area, fans, and laundry service.
This ideal vacation destination is located on the desolate Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, a seemingly endless stretch of desert whose size matches that of the entire country of Switzerland. In ancient times a massive lake, the pans are now depleted of life in the dry season, and travelers can explore ancient archaeological sites, discovering a myriad of fossils and documenting life before the lake’s extinction. During the rainy months, the landscape transforms as migrations of zebra, wildebeest, and multiple bird species, including flamingo, descend upon its renewed marshes and grasslands.
