Natural Selection Welcomes “The Jackal & Hide” In The Greater Okavango Delta To Their Portfolio

Natural Selection are delighted to welcome The Jackal & Hide into the family as of 1st January, 2019.  Previously known as Pangolin Khwai Camp, the intimate, tented retreat offers an authentic Delta experience and brings visitors back to the basics of what a safari is all about. Whilst Pangolin Khwai previously only specialised in tailor-made photographic safaris, The Jackal & Hide will be open to all wildlife enthusiasts. For 2019, the camp will continue to provide a resident photo guide and specialised photographic vehicles for professional and amateur photographers alike, alongside the many guest activities on offer.

The Jackal & Hide is located in the Khwai Private Reserve, a 200,000-hectare area of pristine wilderness in the Greater Okavango Delta region home to an abundance of game. Guests at The Jackal & Hide will be treated to a different activity every day. Classic game drives are available year-round and yield fantastic sightings of the wildlife, and for a different perspective on the natural world, mokoro safaris and boat trips are on offer. Guests will also have the chance to spend time in some of the incredible ground-level hides in the reserve for seriously up close and personal wildlife encounters. For 2019, guests of Pangolin Photo Safaris will continue to be hosted by the resident photo guide and be able to make use of state-of-the-art cameras and specially-adapted vehicles.   

At the camp itself, guests can expect a relaxed and carefree atmosphere. With only 8, Meru-style tents, it’s 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. At the main area, a sunken lounge and fire pit take pride of place. Located just in front of a favourite grazing spot for zebra and elephant, it’s a fabulous wildlife-watching base during siesta time, or, indeed, at any time of day. Under the thatch, the bar, lounge and dining areas are subtly stylish, dotted with sunny cushions and black and white artworks, and by early 2019, a swimming pool to sink into between activities.
