Horizons of the Makgadikgadi
The great expanses of the Kalahari in Botswana are home to some of the world’s most exciting wildlife. Rumor has it, the lions are extremely good looking.
"Andrea did a wonderful job designing an itinerary to suit three generations of diverse interests, and was flexible and responsive to last minute changes and requests. He showed us many hidden treasures of this beautiful region that would have missed we're it not for him."
- Heather on her journey in Italy
A possible, beautiful itinerary for you
Getting into the Safari Mood
You never knew it could be so large. You arrived at Maun and took another, lighter flight. From there, only off-road vehicles can do the trick. Jack’s Camp is like a sight from another time. It rekindles in you a childlike desire for exploration. First, you have to brush the remnants of modern travel off your clothes, before stepping into a wholly different adventure. The fresh dinner and the relaxing ambiance put you in Safari mood.
A Fashion Show in the Wild
You came to Botswana for the wildlife, and it does not disappoint. The game drives are fun and engaging, and you get to see some of the largest zebra and wildebeest migrations in Africa. Elephants take the spotlight, being so large ― but some smaller critters take the prize for effort: a family of meerkats gets really close and tries to use your shoulders as a lookout. And then… lions, with tinted manes that flow with their every movement. They truly are the best looking in the world. Read more
Tea and then Pioneering
Meaning often comes from contrast. A tea parlour in Paris is, well, a tea parlour in Paris. A Parisian tea tent in the middle of the Kalahari, now, that is something to write home about! Your stay at Jack’s Camp has been unforgettable, but you yearn for wilder and wider horizons. Camp Kalahari puts you in the middle of the action. You saddle a horse and go for a ride in the Salt Pans. The wildlife is all around you and the endless horizons stretch ever onward. You change the steed for the quad bike, and even with the added speed, there is no end to Botswana.
A Transformative Parallelism
The sun is setting over the Salt Pans and the nocturnal wildlife begins to stir. The Kalahari has put on quite a show. It is time for a different game drive altogether, as the figures of the night sky begin their eternal parade. Mythical beasts and wild creatures march above you, creating a strange parallelism between the Safari of the Earth and that of the Sky. It’s a good thing that the camp has a tented library. You have a thing or two to ponder.
