Jack’s Camp is one of Africa’s most iconic camps and has reopened in 2021, refreshed and reinvigorated, yet still retains the very stylish old world glamour we all know and love.
Jacks Camp has been around, it seems, forever. It is the original of Jack Bousfields camps established in the Makgdaikgadi. Situated in a large private concession of about 203,500 Hectares, it is an utterly gorgeous, colonial camp with views out over the pans that will take your breath away. The camp is visible from quite far away given there are no raised areas of ground for much of the region, but it is a pleasing site.
There are 10 guest tents, beautifully designed to high specifications. The main mess area too is a wonderful place to spend your day surrounded by style and and an ambience that is unlike anything you may have experienced before. Tailormade Africa particularly like the fact that it is a camp that forces you to be unplugged. No wifi, internet or phone signal to be found. There is a charging station for camera batteries and tablets etc in the main area. Rather handily there is a lovely swimming pool, which is a blessing in the mid day sun.
The range of activities from Jacks Camp ensures your days are always interesting, backed up by very professional and knowledgeable guides. This last point can’t be overstated in it’s importance. Areas such as these can’t compete with other more traditional parks or reserves for wildlife and therefore the ability to keep guests in awe is down entirely to the guide.
Activities include Bushman walks, Quadbiking, Vehicle Safari, Meerkats, Brown Hyena den visit and hugely interesting Palaeontology walks.
Whilst this entire region may not offer a traditional safari experience, Jacks Camp does offer an experience that we are sure most people would appreciate and find wholly worthwhile to add to their safari itinerary.
The new Jack’s pays homage to the much-loved 1940s campaign style of the existing camp. Adorned with a classic East African safari feel, the nine guest rooms, 7 twin tents featuring two queen-size beds and 2 double tents with extra-length king beds, have almost doubled in size.
Jack's Camp has three double tents with en-suite bathrooms featuring indoor and outdoor showers.
