Botswana

Jack’s Camp

PLAN MY TRIP

Voted number one in Conde Naste’s travel awards for 2010 Favorite Overseas Leisure Hotel, Jack’s Camp is an 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.

The camp has a host of exciting activities to choose from. Game drives are the perfect way to explore this unique desert wilderness and includes possible sightings of the region’s unique concentration of wildlife, such as gemsbuck, brown hyena, aardvark, zebra, and flamingo. There is an exciting quad bike excursion through the salt pans. Walking safaris let guests commune with the camp’s friendly meerkat colony. In addition, there are cultural tours with a group of Zu/’hoasi Bushmen as they share their ancient culture. Horse safaris explore the pans the same way the missionaries and explorers did. There is even a visit to Seven Sisters, Chapman’s Baobab which is one of the three largest and oldest trees in Africa.

The main camp includes a private museum, shop, drinks tent, library, bar, and a pool pavilion. There is even a tea tent for delectable afternoon sweets and elegant candlelit dinners served with wine. Named for legendary explorer and the owner’s father, Jack Bousfield, a man of extraordinary character who led aristocrats and film stars to glamping in remotest Africa in the 60s, the camp honors his dream for an authentic safari camp that should be more than just a hotel in the bush. It should be an experience embracing the beauty of the landscape and its wildlife with expert guides.
