The Makgadikgadi Pans in the Kalahari is a truly unforgettable place, a relic of one of the world's largest super lakes, and the setting for Jack's Camp. The environment here is sparse, yet incredibly beautiful all at the same time. I found it impossible not to get caught up in the drama of the place, and in the process completely forgot the worries of my everyday life. The immensity of the landscape became increasingly apparent when we travelled across it and explored remote, fascinating archaeological sites and fossil beds.
There is wildlife to see, but for me it was the sheer beauty of the land that truly enthralled me. The camp itself is gorgeous, my home a spacious and cosy canvas tent with en-suite bathroom. The views are breathtaking and the youthful and enthusiastic guides teamed up with the local Bushmen and took us on some wonderful walks and game drives. Magic!
