Jack's Camp offers a comprehensive desert experience as well as the opportunity to walk with the bushman trackers who provide a unique connection between the fascinating culture and the natural environment.

Qualified zoologists/biologists emphasize the incredible desert wildlife unique to the area on game walks and game drives. Although the salt plains might look barren, they teem with wildlife - hyenas, elephants, lions, ostriches, jackals, springbok, bat-eared foxes, dozens of bird species, wildebeest and zebra to name but a few.

Venture into the impenetrable salt plains on all-terrain, four-wheeled motorcycles to explore remote archaeological sites. In the wet season, the pans fill with water forming one of the most important wetlands sites in Africa, which in turn, attract huge flocks of flamingos as well an annual zebra and wildebeest migration in Southern Africa. Other activities include bird watching and quad biking.

Rooms: Jack's Camp is a classic desert safari camp accommodating 18 guests in nine large walk-in tents built on decks, each with en-suite bathroom with flush toilet and shower. Accommodation is comfortable, very private, spacious and in keeping with the character of the Makgadikgadi

Innovative and fresh, your meals at Jack’s Camp are of a superb standard with all baking done daily on coals. Three rod poles support the main chamber where everyone meets for meals at a long communal dining table.
