The iconic Jack's Camp in the Makgadikgadi, a salt pan situated in the middle of the dry savanna of northeastern Botswana, is undergoing an extensive refurbishment and will reopen in May 2020 to celebrate the camp's 25th anniversary.
The refurbished camp will feature 10 spacious safari tents, doubling the size of the existing tents. The tents will retain the same traditional dark green exterior canvas and iconic interior lining and will each have what camp officials refer to as a miniature natural history museum in the form a cabinet with extraordinary curiosities.
The camp's pool pavilion will be reimagined for 2020 and will include a sundeck. A dedicated spa tent will also be constructed, and the camp will run on Tesla solar power.
The rebuild will begin in October, and while the work is underway guests will be welcomed at Jack's Migration Camp. This new camp will be located close to sister property Camp Kalahari and will offer all the same comforts as Jack's Camp, including a tea tent and swimming pool.
Rates at Jack's Camp will start at US$ 1,795 per person, per night when the property reopens in May 2020.
