Camp Kalahari

Accommodation

Below is some of the wonderful accommodation to include on your journey.

Jack’s Camp £££££

  • Botswana
  • Safari and Wildlife Lodge

Jack’s Camp is located deep in the Kalahari Desert on the edge of the Makgadikgadi Pans, the largest saltpans in the world. This classic desert safari camp has ten large walk-in tents (romantically lit by paraffin in the evenings). Facilities include a mess tent for dining and a tea tent with Persian carpet cushions for socialising. After the rains (December to April), enormous herds of wildebeest, zebra and springbok will appear on the open grasslands and their accompanying predators of course. The summer rains also leave a warm shallow layer of water that entices waterfowl and flamingos. Activities are seasonal and include game drives, quad biking, guided walks with a Bushman tracker and a visit to Chapman’s Baobab, the historical baobab tree used by Livingstone, Selous and other early explorers.

San Camp £££££

  • Botswana
  • Safari and Wildlife Lodge

Situated on the edge of the vast and mysterious Makgadikgadi Salt Pans in the midst of the Kalahari Desert, is one of Botswana’s most romantic camps, San Camp. The camp lies amongst sparsely dotted fan palms and grasslands, with 360 degrees of nothing-ness crossing the eye but the bowl of the sky and curvature of the earth. The six large, white traditional canvas tents face the shore of a sparkling salt pan, privately set apart in dramatic locations.
