Day by Day Itinerary Back to Trips for Botswana

Sands of the Kalahari

Jack’s Camp is the only permanent camp in the Kalahari, on a concession adjoining the Makgadikgadi National Park with its endless vistas of rolling golden grasslands and its huge salt pans... with desert palms lining the horizon. Jack’s Camp is essential for anyone interested in evolution and the origins of the Okavango Delta. It is a complete desert experience focusing on desert adaptations as well as the geology, archaeology and anthropology of the Kalahari. The camp is designed in a traditional East African 40’s style — luxurious and authentic. Roomy, classical style tents with en suite bucket showers are set in a palm grove creating an oasis of civilization in what can be the harshest of stark environments. In the wet season (November - March) the Makgadikgadi pans fill with water attracting flocks of flamingo and other migratory water birds. Additionally, the area is the only place in southern Africa where one is able to see a migration of tens of thousands of wildebeest and zebra followed closely by predators. Four wheel drive quad bikes are used to venture far into the middle of the Pans to explore remote archaeological sites. In the dry season (April - October), you search out the desert game such as gemsbok, brown hyena, springbok and other small and unusual mammals.
