Today transfer to romantic Jack’s Camp, located in a private concession adjacent to the otherworldly landscapes of the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park.

The salt pans stretch for miles on end and the dramatic landscape is home to fascinating desert species including brown hyena, porcupine and aardwolf.
