San Camp

After undergoing a complete redesign, Botswana’s San Camp reopened in July amid a thin stand of ilala palms on the fringe of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans, one of the Earth’s largest salt flats. The tented retreat, which operates annually from April to October, joins Jack’s Camp and Camp Kalahari as the only outposts on Uncharted Africa Safari’s Delaware-size private concession in northeastern Botswana.
 
San Camp’s overscale yet understated tents echo the vastness and quietude of the surrounding desert. High tea is served on low tables in a Bedouin-inspired rotunda strewn with carpets. In the central dining hall, glass cabinets hold a small natural history museum of local artifacts and fossils. Additional tents house a yoga pavilion and the camp’s six spacious suites, which feature four-poster beds and teak-lined en suite bathrooms.
 
Days around the Makgadikgadi are spent with the likes of John Barclay, a sixth-generation African safari guide who takes guests hunting for fossils and walking with Zu/’hoasi bushmen. By night, visitors can venture out on game drives into the moonlit salt pan. San Camp, +27.11.447.1605, www.unchartedafrica.com
