      Jack's Camp - Closed 10/1/19 - 4/30/20

      A Wildebeest Migration and Meerkat Interactions in a Luxurious Desert Setting

      Jack’s Camp is located in a relic of one of the world’s largest super-lakes: The Makgadikgadi dried up thousands of years ago as a result of the continued shifting of the earth’s crust. The ten stylish, bedouin-style canvas tents with en-suite bathrooms and indoor and outdoor showers have been classically outfitted with campaign-style collapsible furnishings, Persian rugs, cool cotton sheets and gleaming copper basins. When not out exploring, enjoy the striking desert contrast from the comfort of your private deck with the Kalahari breezes blowing across your skin. Guided game drives offer a chance to explore the 6,200 square miles of Makgadikgadi Salt pans further to see rare desert species such as brown hyena (third rarest carnivore in the world) and the black-maned Kalahari lion. Ornithology enthusiasts will enjoy birding walks to seek migratory and resident bird species. A very special feature of Jack’s Camp is Meerkat Manor where guests can observe a burrow and watch meerkats interact with one another, fight off air attacks from eagles and hoover up every juicy morsel in sight! A special, ongoing habituation program at Jack’s Camp allows guests to get up close and personal with meerkats who, although not tame, are accustomed to the non-threatening presence of humans. Guided four-wheel quad bike excursions through lunar-like and mysterious fossil pans allow guests to explore remote archaeological sites in the Great Kalahari basin. Jack’s Camp also offers guests the opportunity to take bush walks with with San trackers from the Zu/huasi bushmen tribe, as well as observe the San bush culture’s hunting traditions and gathering of food, herbs and medicinal plants. The Makgadikgadi is home to Southern Africa’s last great migration that occurs in the wet ‘green’ season when lush grasses draw 35,000-75,000 zebras and wildebeests into the area with regular sightings of lion, cheetah and other predators on the hunt of their trail. Thousands of pink flamingos can also be found on the soda lake at Kubu Island in the wet season, during the desert's dramatic and colorful annual transformation.
