Located in the game rich Khwai Private Reserve, in a lovely setting with sweeping views over the open grasslands, Jackal and Hide is a little gem of a camp. Simple in style but with plenty of character and comfort, this is an authentic tented camp at very affordable rates. The camp is simple but the game viewing luxurious, being so exclusive in this vast reserve. Land and water activities are offered depending on seasonal conditions.
Jackal and Hide sits in the Khwai Concession within a 200,000 hectare private wildlife reserve bordering the Moremi Game Reserve and Chobe National Park, with animals roaming freely. This vast reserve is shared by only a handful of camps all owned by the same operator, Natural Selection, so sightings are carefully managed and the safari experience remains exclusive. Wildlife is varied and interesting and common species include elephant, buffalo, general plains game as well as lion and leopard and even wild dog.
Activities will depend on the seasons- game drives moring, afternoon and evening will run throughout the year, while mokoro rides and boating will depend on water levels and traditionally run from May-October. Every month will deliver a different safari experience and being such a beautiful area with good concentrations of game makes this a popular year round destination.
Jackal and Hide has eight tents each set on private raised decks with lovely views over the plains. Each has a private veranda with a table and chairs while inside features double or twin beds, a writing desk and en-suite bathroom with a flush loo, twin basins and a shower. The décor is fresh and light and well suited to the environment.
In the central area the eye is immediately drawn to the sunken lounge and firepit which draws guests for morning coffee and after dinner drinks alike. A large thatch main area features a dinning area, bar and lounge – meals are taken together family style.
At night at Skybeds while staying at Jackal and Hide is highly recommended. Skybeds lies within the same reserve, a few hours from the camp, and offers a fantastic one night experience sleeping under the stars. Sky beds is open from April-October and must be pre-booked.
This conservancy is operated in partnership with local families.
