After several decades of setting the standard in the Kalahari, we are delighted to announce that Jack’s Camp will undergo a full rebuild and refurbishment and reopen in May 2020.
The brand-new Jack’s Camp will pay homage to the property’s enduring and much-loved 1940s campaign style. The guest tents, seven twins and three doubles, will be made much larger and each will be a whopping 271 square metres in size: 136 sq m inside, and 135 sq m outside. The iconic interiors will remain but with the addition of intricate textiles from all over the world, Natural History Museum cabinets, wood burning morso stoves for the chilly evenings and mornings, and an overhead bed cooling systems. Ensuite bathrooms will have both indoor and outdoor shower and outside, each veranda will have a private plunge pool.
The new, larger mess tent will be resplendent with the renowned Natural History Museum, library, antique pool table and a well-stocked drinks chest. The iconic nomadic Persian tea tent will be made larger, whilst the swimming pool pavilion will be reimagined with the addition of a sun deck. The shop will be renovated and restocked with new treasures, and a dedicated spa tent will be added.
We recommend booking Jack’s Camp as part of a complete Natural Selection safari, but if you want to book it separately or just check availability, click here to select dates and book.
