New camp - Jackal & Hide, Khwai
The intimate, tented retreat is located amid the shimmering grasslands of the Khwai Private Reserve, one of the best-managed concessions in the greater Okavango Delta. There’s something to see around every corner and a different activity to enjoy every day, from classic game drives to mokoro trips and boat safaris. And the best bit of all is that this iconic safari experience is its relatively affordable price.
With only 8, Meru-style tents, The Jackal & Hide is an intimate camp with an emphasis on hospitality, comfort and a touch of quirkiness! Each room is a cosy retreat from the elements and all have wonderfully large King-size beds (that can also be twins), writing desks, cool ensuite bathrooms and private verandas with views across the shimmering grasslands.
At the main area, a sunken lounge and fire pit take pride of place and make the perfect spot for that first morning cuppa or an early-evening G&T. Located just in front of a favourite grazing spot for zebra and elephant, it’s a fabulous wildlife-watching base during siesta time too – or at any time of day for that matter. Under the thatch, the bar, lounge and dining areas are subtly stylish, dotted with sunny cushions and black and white artworks, and by mid-2019, we hope to have added a swimming pool to the roster.
