Natural Selection: Jack's Camp - iconic camp to be rebuilt and will reopen in May 2020

Natural Selection

The iconic Jack’s Camp in the Makgadikgadi, Botswana is to be rebuilt and will reopen with a luxurious new look in May 2020 to celebrate the camp’s 25th anniversary. Jack’s Camp is a pioneer. The camp trail-blazed safaris in the harsh but beautiful Makgadikgadi region of Botswana 25 years ago and is still the only operator for almost 100 miles. The safari experience at Jack’s is unique. At first sight the lunar-like salt pans appear devoid of life, but in the hands of the knowledgeable camp guides the story of the Makgadikgadi begins to unfold. Whether it’s quad biking out into the remnants of the super lake, hunting for stone tools in the crusty salt flats or seeing the world through the eyes of the Bushmen, this is a safari where the focus is on learning, appreciating and being humbled by a vast landscape.

Conservation & Sustainability: Natural Selection’s projects, commitment & unique model

Natural Selection

In recent history, we’ve seen conservation of the natural world grow from a fledgling awareness in the 1960s, to a global interest. But somewhere along the way, Africa’s wild places became second best. Animals were poached, and wilderness areas were stripped of trees, eroded and mined. We realised that something had to be done to protect these areas. From its inception, the business model of Natural Selection has been about creating an excellent safari experience that gives back and so 1.5% of each booking goes straight back to conservation. We believe that by simply visiting a wildlife area, travellers are encouraging its continued protection through tourism revenue. For that reason, our deep commitment to conservation is matched only by our devotion to providing our guests with the most unique and extraordinary safari experiences out there.

Immersive Safaris & Authentic Experiences with African Bush Camps

African Bush Camps

African Bush Camps has identified a new definition of what “luxury” entails. From the initial conception of African Bush Camps the importance and value was placed on the experiences as opposed to the fine finishes and “frills” of what others might deem luxurious. Expedition style camps were established to speak to the essence of an experience detached from the modern world pressures and high pace. Guests are able to submerge themselves in untouched remote locations where their senses are unhindered. Breathe, touch, smell, see nature in its most raw form. The luxury is remoteness.

Wilderness Safaris Zimbabwe’s Seasonality – Dry vs Green Benefits

Wilderness Safaris

Seasons are historically cut into 2 in Zimbabwe – Green vs Dry, especially in Hwange National Park. People often rush to book the dry season resulting in lack of space, elevated rates and frustrations. However, the green season has so much to offer but is seldom talked about. Why visit in the green season? Why is it beneficial not only to the pocket but also to the guests experience? We are wanting to change the myth on the green season and make the question, why wouldn’t one travel in the green season if they had the chance?
