Fodor's Review

If you're bold-spirited, reasonably fit, and have kept your childlike sense of wonder, then Jack's is for you. A cross between a Fellini movie, a Salvador Dalí painting, and Alice in Wonderland, this camp doesn't offer the cocooned luxury of some of the Okavango camps; it offers a more rugged, pioneer feel reminiscent of a 1940s-style safari. East African safari tents on wooden decks set in a palm grove have ancient Persian rugs, antique brass-hinged chests, teak and canvas furniture, stately four-poster beds, a flush toilet that resembles a throne, and indoor and outdoor showers. Meals are taken under a huge baobab tree or in a large, open-sided tent. The camp's highly qualified rangers are respected throughout Botswana for their love and commitment to this amazing area. You won't find the Big Five here, but you will find unique desert-adapted animals and plants like the brown hyena, meerkats, salt bushes, and desert palms. You can also explore the pans on quads or learn about the unique ecosystem from the enigmatic San-Bushmen.
