San Camp
Makgadikgadi

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.

I travel a lot; I hate having my life disrupted by routine.
Caskie Stinnett

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
