HERO Jacks Camp Aerial View

LOCATION

In the lesser-explored Makgadikgadi Salt Pan—a part of the Kalahari that’s roughly the size of Switzerland—you’ll discover a slice of 1940s classic safari cool amid a wildlife-rich landscape.

Beneath the green canvas tops of the Moroccan-style tents, you’ll find luxurious interiors full of antiques, velvet sofas, and an unparalleled whiff of authenticity. This, considering the camp was recently refurbished, demonstrates the commitment that the owners have to maintain their unique style in the face of ever-evolving safari camp trends.

The tents come equipped with en-suite bathrooms, indoor and outdoor showers, wood-burning Morso stoves, colorful rugs, and twin or double beds with dark wood headboards (as well as overhead bed-cooling systems).

The service you’ll encounter in the mess tent is also right on the money—attentive when required, offering plenty of privacy otherwise. Sip Champagne as you relax on your private veranda watching the mesmerizing Kalahari sunset.

WHAT MAKES THIS HOTEL UNIQUE?

It’s a camp that can truly lay claim to retaining that classic African safari feel. Help yourself to drinks at the honesty bar, afternoon tea is served with classically English cucumber sandwiches, and just pretend that WIFI hasn’t been invented yet. Beyond the antiques and other historical relics, the camp also has its own Natural History Museum.

It’s also rare to find a camp that allows children of all ages to stay, and while there’s only one family tent the suites are swiftly and effectively converted with daybeds to suit your group’s needs.
