Jack’s Camp
Makgadikgadi

The iconic Jack’s Camp is an oasis of style and comfort in the middle of Botswana’s Kalahari Desert. The camp is an authentic, 1940’s style tented safari camp, which even has its own museum! Spectacular vistas, creative surprises, expert guiding, old world safari styling and superb cuisine all combine to create an experience that is completely different. The camp features 7 twin and 3 double tents with en-suite bathrooms, as well as indoor and outdoor showers.

Activities on offer year-round include interacting with habituated meerkats, walking with Bushmen guides, game drives to experience unique desert wildlife, Chapman’s Baobab, which is one of the oldest and biggest trees in Africa, bird watching and night drives. During the dry season activities include quad biking across the salt pans. During the wet season visitors can witness the spectacular zebra and wildebeest migration experience. Explore this wild, unspoilt area in the same way many of the earliest explorers, hunters and missionaries did – on horseback, an alternative safari option for the experienced rider and one which will not disappoint! Guests can also spend time walking and interacting with a group of Zu/’hoasi Bushmen and gain insight into their ancient culture.

A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it.
John Steinbeck

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
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
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
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, 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
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
