Jack's Camp is a Kalahari legend. Sitting in Botswana's immense Makgadikgadi Salt Pans - 50-minutes flying time from Maun – under a grove of palm trees, with extensive views across the Pans. Jack's owner is a veteran safari guide, and the camp takes pride in its motto: 'Give them what they never knew they wanted.'
The original Jack's Camp was beautifully constructed and decorated in a very classical safari style; an inviting and romantic oasis in this harsh environment. Think early settler décor, with a mix of old mahogany furniture, copper basins, Persian rugs, Moroccan and Ethiopian artefacts and natural objects no electric lights or plug points in the tents, but paraffin and solar-powered lanterns provide ambient lighting after dark.
Jack's Camp is now undergoing a full rebuild and refurbishment and was set to reopen in May 2020, however this has been delayed due to COVID-19. We understand that the brand-new Jack's Camp will not change in style – keeping the property's enduring, unique and much-loved 1940s campaign style. The guest tents, seven twins and three doubles, will be made much larger, while the iconic interiors will remain but with the addition of intricate textiles from all over the world, Natural History Museum cabinets, wood-burning Morso stoves for the chilly evenings and mornings, and an overhead bed cooling systems. Ensuite bathrooms will have both indoor and outdoor shower, and outside, each veranda will now have a private plunge pool.
