Jack's Camp

A relic of one of the world's largest super-lakes, the Makgadikgadi dried up thousands of years ago as a result of the continued shifting of the earth's crust. Jack's Camp is sited in this prehistoric setting offering just ten bedouin-style canvas tents with en-suite bathrooms and spacious bedrooms with persian rugs and cool cotton sheets. The striking desert contrast can be viewed from the comfort of your private deck and when out on game drives, quadbikes or walking safaris to experience the rugged wilderness. In addition to the Black-maned Kalahari Lions, rarer and elusive species such as Brown Hyena can also be seen.

BISATE LODGE

“I shall never forget my first encounter with gorillas. Sound preceded sight. Odor preceded sound. The air was suddenly rent by a high-pitched series of screams followed by the rhythmic chestbeats of a Great Silverback male obscured by what seemed an impenetrable wall of vegetation.”

One of the largest salt flats in the world, the Makgadikgadi Pans are all that remain of the former “super lake” that once covered an area larger than Switzerland, but dried up due to continual shifting of the earth’s crust several thousand years ago. This sandy desert offers an interesting melody of rare wildlife in an otherworldly landscape. Some of the rarest species such as Brown Hyena and Kalahari Lions can be sighted at this concession.

Meerkats and Wildlife

Scouting for land to set up camp back in 1992, Ralph Bousfield accompanied by his father, the legendary explorer Jack Bousfield, and his former partner Catherine Raphaely, a NY-based stylist, suffered a plane crash on the same site previously sought by the pioneer in 1962. To honor the memory of Jack Bousfield this site was selected for the eponymous camp.

Guided game drives offer a chance to explore the 6,200 sq miles of Makgadikgadi Salt pans further to see rare desert species such as Brown Hyaena (third rarest carnivore in the world) and the Kalahari Lion. Ornithology enthusiasts will enjoy birding walks to seek migratory & resident bird species.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
