San Camp is situated on the edge of the vast openness that is the Makgadikgadi Pans – the remains of an extinct super lake that once covered most of Botswana. Glance around you and nothing comes to view bar the whiteness of the pan with the odd clump of trees and blue of the sky. San Camp is truly remote!
Six elegant en-suite white tents, each sheltered by a clump of desert palms, sit on the edge of the pan, offering their guests a minimal yet elegant safari experience.
San Camp and its sister camp, Jacks, are located in the one of only a few areas where guests can see the rare brown hyaena and are able to walk through the Kalahari accompanied by semi-habituated meerkats.
Venturing far into the centre of the Makgadikgadi, on 4wd quad bikes, we are able to explore remote archaeological sites, periodically discovering never before documented fossil beds of extinct giant zebra and hippo. The fact that you can travel across the pans at great speed and still arrive nowhere only underlines the pans immensity. There is nothing out here; absolutely nothing.
