All about isolation

Iconic Pirelli Calendar shoots to stunning landscapes from Taylor Swift’s Wildest Dreams video were captured right here at San Camp

San Camp sits serenely in a reef of palm at the edge of the Makgadikgadi Pan. The Makgadikgadi was once a great inland sea, which has since dried up and left a bed of salt pans the size of Switzerland. During the wet season the landscape transforms and flamingo and other migratory birds arrive here to nest. Herds of zebra and wildebeest are drawn by the lush grass, and for several months, the desert is teeming with game and predators. Open only from April to October, this is a truly iconic location.

San Camp has six pale khaki canvas tents with no running water or electricity but with four-poster beds, mosquito net canopies, cambric sheets, bucket showers, and paraffin lamps. Completely redesigned in 2011, San Camp lifted its renovation curtains to reveal the same signature charm and minimalist in style to suit its desert environment. The nothingness of the desert coupled with the soft interiors of camp and nourishing hospitality provide a tranquil and restful escape to remotest Africa.

Jack's Camp and San Camp offer a unique chance to explore and understand the Kalahari via game drives or walking safaris. Venturing far into the centre of the Makgadikgadi, on 4-wheel drive quad bikes, you can 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.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
