The Jackal & Hide
The Jackal & Hide has a peaceful location on the 200,000 ha Khwai Private Reserve, one of the best-managed and most pristine wildlife areas in Botswana. To the north are drier areas commonly associated with the Savute ecosystem. To the south lies the Khwai river accompanied by its lush vegetation deep water holes and ponds.
Accommodation & Facilities
The Jackal & Hide has eight Meru style tents, with ensuite bathrooms and a small private deck. The dining room, lounge and bar is under a thatched roof and sits in the middle of the camp with raised boardwalks extending either side to the tents. The camp fire is in front at ground level.
Wildlife & Activities
Khwai Private Reserve has an excellent wildlife population which includes lion, leopard, wild dog, elephant, buffalo, wildebeest, kudu, giraffe and waterbuck. The birdlife is also prolific thanks to the varied habitats in the area. The Jackal & Hide offers day and night drives, and motor boat and mokoro (dug-out canoe) trips when the water levels are at their fullest – generally from April through to October. There are also a number of sunken photographic hides, and a resident photographic guide in camp who can assist keen photographers.
