San Camp

An astonishing oasis on the edge of the never-ending Makgadikgadi Pans, San Camp embodies pared-down safari elegance and style.

Ecosensitive San Camp is the sister camp to Jack’s Camp and it has the same wildly romantic ambience. The classic white safari tents stand majestically on the edge of the enormous sparkling saltpan, each in the shade of stately desert palms. The camp is small and intimate, with just six widely spread out tented rooms. Each room has an en-suite bathroom with flushing toilet and bucket shower. In keeping with tradition, lighting is simple – traditional old spirit lamps are atmospheric and allow for excellent stargazing of the Kalahari’s magnificent night skies.

In this stark environment, luxury is redefined: simple indulgences like hot bucket showers, flush loos, four-poster beds draped with mosquito-net canopies and covered in crisp percale linen, paraffin lamps, and spectacular vistas of the vast and mysterious Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, the remnant of an extinct superlake that once covered most of Botswana, become utterly indulgent.

A stay at San Camp gives you an unusual opportunity to explore and understand the Kalahari. Explore the vast Makgadikgadi Pans by quad bike, enjoy guided game viewing, sundowner cocktails with the most colourful sunsets on the planet, dinner under the stars, safari walks with San Bushman trackers, incredible birding in the wet season, all in the untold luxury of seemingly infinite space.
