San Camp is the ‘little Sister’ to Jack’s Camp and offers the same romantic charm and elegance of Jack’s Camp but is more relaxed and informal. The classic safari tents are nestled on the shore of an enormous and sparkling salt pan, each sheltered by a cluster of desert palms. A mirage in the vast and empty Kalahari Desert, this is the perfect romantic retreat.
San Camp offers 4 twin and 2 double tents with en-suite bathrooms and spacious veranda. Tents are light, airy and stylish. San Camp is open only for 6 months of the year during the dry season (16th of April to 15th of October). Visitors at San Camp are encouraged to go quad biking across the lunar expanse of the pans, lie out on the pans as the sun sets and watch the planetarium show unfold with horizon-to-horizon stars. Get unbelievably up close and personal with meerkats. Spend time walking and interacting with a group of Zu/’hoasi Bushmen and gain insight into their ancient culture. Other activities which can be arranged include game drives to experience unique desert wildlife, a visit to Chapman’s Baobab, campsite of Livingstone & Selous: one of the three largest and oldest trees in Africa. Relax at the end of an intense and exciting safari in the yoga pavilion.
