Nalanage Safaris Lodge Accommodation

Makgadikgadi Pans

Set in the heart of “The Great Nothing” are the charming camps run by the legendary 5th generation Safari Guide, Ralph Bousfield. 

Ralph’s passion for the Kalahari and the Bushmen began at a very young age, as he was very lucky to have one of the greatest teachers and mentors, his father, Jack Bousfield.

With a pioneering vision and a passion for adventure, Jack embarked on a lifelong obsession with the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans in the early 1970s, with a vision to start a safari camp. 

After spending many years on safari, Jack was satisfied with the most simple of satisfactions with no appetite for frills and fancy.

Today Jack’s legacy lives on as Ralph continues to train the guides and pass on his encyclopedia of knowledge, and the utterly enchanting lodge staff make every guest feel part of their family.

Jack's Camp

One of Africa’s most iconic safari camps, Jack’s Camp takes its name in honour of Ralph’s father, with his lasting legacy resonating throughout the camp.

The camp pays homage to the property’s enduring and much-loved 1940s campaign style with an extensive mess tent featuring its own Natural History Museum and Persian tea tent, with a separate pavilion complete with swimming pool and lounge area. There are 9 gloriously lavish rooms (270sqm) with over-bed cooling systems, indoor and outdoor showers and a spacious verandah with a private plunge pool.

This ex-hunting turned photographic concession is set in a community trust area  – meaning that Khwai Private Reserve works in partnership with the Khwai Development Trust and the local community – with proceeds going straight back into the Khwai Village community projects.

Within months of the hunting stopping, the game began to return and in time became much less nervous around people and vehicles and it now offers a very rewarding wildlife experience – a great Conservation triumph.

Just like the bedrooms, the communal areas are designed around the spectacular vistas. At night, dinner is served either in the indoor dining area, or alfresco on the deck, accompanied by twinkling stars and the rumblings and grumblings of the wildlife.
