The safari experience at Jacks' Camp presents a unique and fascinating side of Botswana and the great Kalahari. The Makgadikgadi Pans are vast ancient lake beds strewn with fossilised artefacts and home to some fascinating desert-adapted wildlife like gemsbok, aardvark, springbok and the meerkats and brown hyena of documentary fame. Summer rains from November to January bring flamingos, pelicans and other migrants by the thousand and the second largest mammal migration in Africa has hordes of zebra, wildebeest and impala move south - with an army of predators in tow.
