A Desert Mirage? Jack's Camp, Makgadikgadi, Botswana The surreal sighting of a swimming pool being carried over the Makgadikgadi salt pans by the Jack's Camp staff was captured on film. Work is now underway to erect the pavilion tent that will house the welcome oasis. Soon guests will be able to luxuriate in cool comfort while gazing over the seemingly endless golden grasslands. The tent's style and interior will continue the Jack's Camp tradition of classical elegance celebrating the safaris of yesteryear.
Zibadianja Camp, Selinda Reserve, Botswana is settling down nicely after its recent reconstruction. Improvements include private plunge pools for each room; the use of campaign-style furniture for a traditional ambience; a solid feel through the reuse of railway sleepers as decking; and hollow-fiber tent canvas aiding greater temperature control. One thing that has not changed is the superb wildlife viewing from the main area and tents as one gazes out on the Zibadianja Lagoon. For photography aficionados, a Canon 40D and 100-400mm lens is provided in each tent at both Zibadianja and neighboring Selinda Camp, and a specially adapted photography vehicle can be booked for guests who wish to photograph unhindered.
Wellness treatments on safari are becoming more and more popular. What better place for a massage than in the remote wilderness, surrounded by intoxicating and exotic sights, sounds and smells!
