Jack's Camp and San Camp, located in the Makgadikgadi
Pans, are in our view the most magical place in Botswana.
After you have seen the big game in Moremi we can recommend no place more
highly than a visit here. Your time will be filled with special surprises,
adventure, and luxurious relaxation in an old-style safari camp. The camp
is associated with a research station and guides have advanced degrees
in zoology, biology and related fields. This offers a unique opportunity
to learn about the ecology of the Kalahari and how this harsh environment
has driven the evolution of wildlife. Once here you will have a much
better appreciation for the ecology in Botswana as a whole.
Derived from the research that
is being performed a newly introduced activity is meerkat "trekking" which
allows you to see what goes on through the eyes of these intelligent,
social and highly aware animals.
A minimum of three nights is recommended
in order to give you time to appreciate the desert wildlife in the grass
lands, and to explore the marvels of the salt pans.
