Jack's Camp

Readers' Choice Winner


From Andrew Harper:

Unique, extremely well-run camp at the edge of the Kalahari’s Makgadikgadi salt pans, an hour by air southeast of Maun. Enormous canvas main tent, filled with a treasure trove of fossils, skulls, spears, books and maps, is lined by a voluptuous canopy of pale raspberry-pink cotton. Sisal mats and Persian carpets cover the dark wooden floor; easy chairs come with kilim-covered cushions. The 10 guest tents share this nostalgic décor but are very comfortable, with en suite baths, indoor and outdoor showers, and spacious verandas. Delicious food and a good selection of wines. Splendid swimming pool set in a tented pavilion. A nearby water hole ensures wildlife sightings year-round; also walks with the local San Bushmen. A second, dry season camp sits immediately adjacent to the salt flats. For those of a romantic and adventurous spirit, Jack’s Camp cannot be recommended too highly.
