It's with good reason that inimitable Jack's Camp in Botswana's Makgadikgadi is known as one of Africa's most stylish offerings.

Dual function ferry near Makgadikgadi in Botswana. During low water it works as a bridge, during high water it works as a ferry. The price is the same. #Botswana #4x4 #camping #rivercrossing #ferries #makgadikgadi www.gommit-foto.de

Happy #worldelephantday !
I certainly miss spending time with these intelligent, comical, emotional and all-around awesome creatures.
With an estimated 100 elephants being killed every day we need to work together to protect these gentle giants and find ways for them to live safely alongside humans .

Meet A2A Traveller @pauladvazquez and her new buddy from the Makgadikgadi. Regram: “One of my favorite experiences from our time in the Makgadikgadi pans was our interaction with Meerkats ❤️ They were the cutest and friendliest animals out in the wild 😍"

They symbolize strength, power, loyalty and family (amongst many other things) and we are proud that they get to call the Makgadikgadi home.
Happy World Elephant Day!

Miles and miles of open road in the Makgadikgadi, Botswana. Love it and love the #Osmo stabilizer. Smooth as!

Travel does this grand thing of bringing people from different backgrounds together and giving them the opportunities to revel in the great things about life, share their own stories and experiences and frustrations, and learn more about the world through each other. Going on safari in the African continent gave me that extra unique interaction with the guests, the staff, and the people from the community. But I definitely felt that more on this last trip to Bots than any other trip before and I can't thank everyone enough for the moments and lessons and friendships I will cherish forever.

Our 'meerkat men' spend every day with their mob of meerkats, ensuring that they stay habituated to humans and allowing guests to get fantastically close to these fascinating little carnivores.

I feel this photo pretty much sums up my work trip to the Makgadikgadi Moonlight. Bike. Pans. Amazing sky. Sense of being in the middle of nowhere. And it was a quad that won the event that helped EfA raise over $350 USD.
Thanks @muddyfacebotswana for helping @elephantsforafrica out!

Blue skies and pink salts. I should practice more yoga so I have nicer poses for when I travel.

Meno a Kwena, oftewel ‘tanden van de krokodil’, ligt op de grens van #Makgadikgadi Pans National Park en dichtbij #Nxaipan National Park. Het rustieke Meno A Kwena Tented Camp straalt een Oost-Afrikaanse stijl uit en heeft een uniek uitzicht op de #Botetiriver. Een ideale plek om te ontspannen!

Moon rise over the far east of the Makgadikgadi Pans. Still part of the same pan system, but a 5-hour drive away. It shows just how big this system is.

I got to experience this amazing part of Botswana along with bike races and blood moon eclipse on a great weekend organised by @muddyfacebotswana

That moment when you finally see the first of many pans on trip out discovering new day trips from #LerooLaTau with @desertdelta - We got right out to the open expansive pans! More on stories!

An amazing weekend spent exploring new areas of the Makgadikgadi, breathe-taking landscapes to say the least!
Certainly a great last weekend at home before I head down under!

Image by @beverlyjoubert. The Makgadikgadi salt pans in Botswana form a harsh, blindingly white and inhospitable environment where the sun beats down onto salt-encrusted earth. Only the toughest animal species pass through here in the dry summer months. But when the rains come, the dust is settled, the sky is mirrored in the shallow pans, nutrient-rich grass grows around the edges and zebras appear in vast numbers. This is an ancient migration from the Okavango and one that was thought to be lost following the erection of wildlife fences in the 1960s to keep wildlife and livestock separate. In 2006 the Nxai Pan fence was removed. It had previously completely blocked access to the pans along these migratory routes and zebras and wildebeest hadn't been able to follow the rains to renewed grazing grounds. Remarkably, despite numerous generations unable to migrate, the removal of the fence immediately resulted in the zebra descendants following those same paths once again. As human activity has interrupted numerous migrations across the world, it is important to know that if we remove barriers, it is possible that these ancient routes will revive and animals will connect important ecosystems seasonally once again. #botswanamigration #zebramigration #makgadikgadi #ancientpaths #aerial #migration

Jack's camp offers an authentic experience from the old-world glamour tented accommodation and decor to the unusual desert safari experiences it offers, such as quad biking on the salt pans, walks with the local Bushmen, paleontological walks, and visits to a habituated meerkat colony as well as Chapman's baobab (considered the third largest tree in Africa).

One of my first breeding herd sightings in Makgadikgadi. There were very few because it was a predominantly bull area!

A San mother stands proudly in her cultural wear, with a child from the same tribe just feet away clad in a pink sweater. The story of the difference in attire may seem like a very simple visual explanation of the changes from traditional to modern lifestyles, but it goes into a far more fascinating route than this.
I’ll be posting more about what I learned about this in the upcoming series on my recent trip to Botswana. Hope to catch you on here xx
Thank you to @unchartedafrica for the outstanding experience. It was even better the second time around.

Tranquility: As the sun dips into undisturbed and perfectly flat #Makgadikgadi horizon, it reveals a display of warm colors in the sky. The sense of vastness and stillness of this place makes it so magical at dusk.

The Makgadikgadi Pans are the remains of an enormous inland lake. This becomes apparent after good rains. The zebra migration arrives, so do flamingos. Watch it all while you sip a G n T at the pool deck. #falconafrica #familysafaris #luxuryholiday #luxurylodge #honeymoon #bushwedding #botswanasafari #makgadikgadi #flamingo #birdwatching #quadbiking

Taking time to appreciate this incredible image by @beverlyjoubert. Regram @natgeoImage: Zebras in shallow water covering the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans. They look like one unit but are in fact thousands of individual family groups all driven by an unbreakable urge to move with the rains. After decades of being cut off by a veterinary fence to keep wildlife separate to cattle, the fence has dropped and the zebras are back, following a route longer than that of the great wildebeest migration of the Serengeti and Maasai Mara. Knowing that that famous wildebeest and zebra migration brings in thousands of tourists every year, the re-emergence of this ancient migration raises interesting conservation and financial questions and perhaps warrants a closer look at the benefits and detriments of the fences that still remain.

A salt pan stands like a great eye in the dusty grasslands of the Makgadikgadi, and it has drawn thousands of zebras from hundreds of km away in the Okavango. The instinct to migrate is unbreakable. #zebramigration #makgadikgadi #zebramigrationbotswana #aerial
