Botswana – part 2

After spending 6 nights in our mobile camp which had been run by Johnny & Tasha Ramsden of Royale Wilderness, we went back to Maun. Bill Burns ( had organised 2 nights for us at the famous Jack’s Camp. We left our heavy luggage in Maun and took a small plane there. We arrived to be greeted by cold drinks, followed by tea with cakes and sandwiches.  The main room has a dining table that would seat 30, but it is also a natural history museum with animal skulls, fossilised tools, stuffed animals, photographs, maps and an excellent library. You eat communally with the guides. Jack’s Camp is about to have a major refit – and each ‘tent’ will have its own pool. Tent is a bit of a misnomer as the photograph shows:

Attention to detail is one of the selling-points – and it was impossible to fault the service and the decor etc.
