San Camp

  • In the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, central Botswana
  • Activities include walking, tracking, and exploring the lunar landscape of the Makgadikgadi
  • Great for appreciation of wilderness and the open air
  • An excellent contrast to the wet big-game viewing areas of the Okavango
When To Visit Makgadikgadi Salt Pans:
"My favourite camp in all of Africa! Stylish and chic, small and intimate... and with a truly breath-taking location."


Its brother, Jack’s Camp, may be larger and better known, but San has an arguably superior location and although its design and facilities are slightly simpler, it seems to have just as much appeal to clients.


San Camp is a unique little property located within the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans in central Botswana.


The seven white tents offer 360 degree views over the salt pans, and are en suite with indoor showers. The beds are enormous four-posters and the tents feature Persian rugs, mahogany furniture and a lazy day bed - perfect for an afternoon of view-gazing. The camp also has a tented yoga pavilion for midday meditation.


This is a superb safari camp that offers a unique contrast to the big-game viewing areas of the Okavango, Moremi and Chobe.

  • Full-day game drives to the Boteti River area may prove extremely productive. However, both Jack’s Camp and San Camp are about appreciating the finer things – walking and tracking with the San Bushmen, visiting groups of habituated meerkats and brown hyena, or simply exploring the lunar landscape of the Makgadikgadi.
  • Big game is not the focus here – enjoying the setting as well as the general wilderness and the open air is what San Camp is all about.
