Safari Lifestyles View

Quite a new camp in the Sable Alley area and to the south east of the concession, closer to the Khwai river.

This concession is still relatively new for the last few years only but has started to maintain a steady reputation for great game sightings.

The point here is that this camp offers an affordable entry into the area where Sable Alley and the more luxurious Tuludi dominate.

It’s a great addition to a very good wildlife concession.

The Jackal and Hide Gallery


The varied habitats of Khwai support an equally impressive cast of animals and all the stars of the wildlife show are present – as well as a few extra.

The wetlands and rivers host impressive quantities of hippos and crocodiles, whilst on dry land, big cats lurk along treelines and sometimes right through camp. Sable, roan, impala and kudu dot the grasslands, alongside giraffe and zebra, an abundance of elephant and buffalo, and of course, the occasional jackal.

The birdlife is fantastic and guests can expect everything from giant eagle owls to lilac breasted rollers. Khwai also has an excellent reputation for the rarer species of the African savannah including wild dogs, serval cats, honey badgers and the elusive pangolin. Binos at the ready!

The Camp

Camp Overview

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.

Room Description

With only 8, Meru-style tents, The Jackal & Hide is an intimate camp with an emphasis on hospitality, comfort and a touch of Natural Selection 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.

Camp Environment

The Jackal & Hide is located in the Khwai Private Reserve, a 200,000-hectare area of pristine wilderness in the Greater Okavango Delta region. The reserve is bordered by Moremi to the south, Savuti to the north and the Khwai Community Reserve to the east – in other words, in the middle of some of the most famous and iconic game-viewing areas on the continent!

Up here, the landscape is truly iconic of the Delta: vast floodplains and sprawling grasslands meet patches of forested enclaves, and through it all runs an intricate network of channels and lily-filled waterways. It’s one of the most well-managed concessions in the area and with very few other vehicles (and people!) around, a safari in Khwai is a true wilderness experience.
