Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pans camps - San Camp
San Camp, little sister to the eccentric Jack's Camp presents the opportunity to encounter an other-worldly place where the curve in the earth can be seen with your own eyes. San Camp manages to be both simple and luxurious at the same time because of the attention to detail and the fact that you know that you are privileged to experience this empty part of Africa without the chance of seeing another person...surely a luxury in itself.
The tents are comfortably furnished with canopied beds and crisp sheets and a butler is on hand to attend to your every need. You shower under the stars here using bucket showers - there's no running water or electricity, but somehow, in this immense nothingness, even a hot shower seems like an incredible treat. Like Jack's Camp, you shouldn't come here expecting to see the Big Five; this is an experience for all the senses and just the silence is noteworthy. The creatures that you will encounter here, like the endearing meercat or the rare brown hyena, are highly adapted to the desert environment and fascinating, especially when your view is tempered by the remarkable knowledge of the Bushman guides.
San Camp is not for everyone but those that go with an open mind and can appreciate that there is more to African than elephants and lions, will leave with unforgettable memories.
