Surely one of the remotest locations in the world for a museum - Jack's Camp on the edge of Botswana's Makgadikgadi Pans is a registered Museum and therefore permited to collect and display archeological finds.  If you havent been to Makgadikgadi, then put it on the bucket list - 16,000 km2 of white emptiness, an almost impossibly elemental place where it is no exaggeration to say that the silence is defeaning, but an unforgettable experience of one of the world's most unusual habitats.   In certain areas on the pans, things resembling autumn leaves litter the surface of the dried lake bed - on closer inspection, the "leaves" turn out to be immaculate stone tools
