On arrival in Maun, Botswana you will be met by a representative and assisted onto your light charter flight to the Makgadikgadi, a flight of about 30 minutes. Your guide will be waiting on arrival and will transfer your to camp, a game drive of about 15 minutes, depending on sightings along the way.
A warm Botswana welcome awaits. Having been introduced to the camp and team you will settle into your new desert home before sitting down with your guide for some light refreshments and an introduction to the area and activities on offer. You will have the chance to set off on your first activity or you may prefer to relax in camp after your long journey.
Jack’s Camps offers an amazing arrange of activities, which your guide will discuss with you and plan into your stay to ensure you make the most of your time here. Game drives, bush walks, meerkat visits, quad biking, horse riding, san bushman walks and more are offered here. (Note the quad biking is only offered in the dry season).
You will set out on your first game drive to get your bearings in this lunar like world. Mirages glimmer on the horizon while tracks of the wildlife who make these epic crossings remind you that these pans are not as empty as they seem. Elephant are often seen here, as are giraffe, zebra and even lion. Lookout for the dust above the horizon for signs of moving animals.
Stopping in a scenic spot to toast the setting sun. The sunsets here are truly incredible, the dust creates an amazing blend of colours across the flat horizons – you will want your camera out!
Returning to camp with a spotlight to try and glimpse some of the nocturnal creatures which live in the desert. A camp fire awaits, followed by dinner and your first night in the desert. Over dinner you will plan your activities for the next day.
