Jack's & San Camp - the 'wild' days are gone...

From WS May 2005 newsletter:
"Wilderness has found potable water at San Camp in Botswana's Kalahari. The camp will now have running water and flush toilets. Jack's Camp will be getting a plunge pool and each room will now have a fan..."

News seems to be a bit late - they found a waterhole at Jack's quite some time back and their latest upgrade to Jack's (which was either late 2003 or early 2004, I forget) was based around it - for the first time the ensuite bathrooms had hot and cold running water all the time and flush rather than drop toilets.

The upgrade to San at that time was just a case of taking the old Jack's tents/ facilities and replacing San Camp old tents with these old tents.

I guess they are now taking it further by adding a pool and more facilities at San Camp. I'm surprised about the San Camp change more as I'd thought they would keep it as it was with bucket showers etc. to cater to those who had a strong preference for such.

The handle really should be "The Spanish Town Aardvark". ;-)
