Makgadikgadi and Jack's camp

May 13 and 14
Before sunrise we were up in the air again, flying toward Windhoek. We cleared custom, refueled and flew to Maun, Botswana. A pleasant flight of just below 3 hours. We cleared custom, refueled and set course to the edge of the Kalahari, where the Makgadikgadi pan is. During our flight to Jack’s Camp we were very lucky to get the tail of the zebra migration, seeing thousands of zebra moving toward the North West, in search of greener pastures. And we saw elephants, and giraffes, and oryx, and even many secretary birds. Flying over Africa is simply magical…


We arrived at magnificent Jack’s camp. It was like coming home, especially for Luca, raised by his father during the hunting days. A different time, a different way to pursue conservation, but here it lives frozen in time, like a sumptuous boudoir.
Sundowner in the pan with a full moon: priceless…

Early morning spent with the meerkats and hugging one of the biggest baobab of Africa…
Afternoon learning to track with the Koi San, the legendary bushmen. This safari gets better and better everyday…
