Jack’s Camp is an exclusive tented lodge located on a private concession bordering Ntwetwe Pan and the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park.
Jack’s Camp is a very established property and offers a superb Makgadikgadi Pans experience. It is an expensive camp, which limits its appeal to many, but this does of course make it an exclusive camp to visit. The accommodation is very comfortable and a complete rebuild in 2021 has retained the quirky old world interiors whilst overcoming some of the more impractical elements of the original design. However, it is not the accommodation you visit Jack’s Camp for, it is the wonderful guiding, the varied activities, the superb service, the specialist wildlife experiences and the incredible natural scenery that attract you! Provided you are not expecting a slick hotel or highly luxurious accommodation, Jack’s is a wonderful experience.
The Makgadikgadi Pans are well worth a visit for anyone who enjoys exploring different habitats and landscapes, and who is prepared to compromise a little on the big game experience in favour of geographical diversity and more specialist wildlife viewing. The specialist wildlife is worth a particular mention as it is sometimes the key reason for visiting the area – brown hyaena, aardvark, aardwolf and habituated meerkats.
