Our Review of Jack's Camp:

Recently renovated 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 raspberry-pink cotton. Sisal mats and Persian carpets cover the dark wooden floor; easy chairs come with kilim-covered cushions. Refreshed library area with new Victorian sofas. Ten 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. Refurbished swimming pool set in a tented pavilion. A nearby waterhole ensures wildlife sightings. 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.
