Tau Pan Camp overview
If you want to get out into the Kalahari Desert, but stay
in luxury accommodation, Tau Pan is one of the places to come. Its remote
location means no other people are around and you really have the area to
yourself. You feel like an adventurer here!
Camp, run by Kwando Safaris, has been designed to blend in with and compliment
the surrounding environment of the Central
Kalahari Game Reserve. The largest game reserve in the world, this area is home
to a rich variety of game including lion, leopard, cheetah, jackals, a variety
of antelopes and wild dogs, and plentiful bird life.
camp is situated on a sand ridge overlooking a permanent water hole. It has 8
tents and is set under thatch. The central area houses the dining room, lounge
and game viewing and star gazing deck. There is a small swimming pool, a library
and curio shop. Activities offered include game drives day and night in open
4x4 vehicles with a tracker and guide, a maximum of 6 clients per vehicle and
land is mostly flat with undulating grass and bush covered sand dunes. During
late November to March the rains generally fall and it's during these summer
rains that the Kalahari transforms as the plains and pans burst with flowers
and sweet grass. Migratory species including zebra and wildebeest return to
graze in their thousands. Many antelope species join them and the predators
follow. During the dry season of May to September the area retains many
resident species which congregate close to any surface water and pans.

"Like Sango this small camp was superb. Guide and bushmen trackers were great. The environment is awesome. Game viewing wonderful, All staff friendly and welcoming. First rate!"

"Excellent facilities in the rooms, which were clean and spacious. Wonderful views from the lodge over the surrounding landscape, including seeing lions one morning at the waterhole, and sunrises. Meals and snacks were always plentiful and very good and the complimentary water and drinks very welcome. Again, for the welcome on arrival onwards, I felt really at home. Having an extra (third) night would have been well worthwhile."

"Excellent all round - accommodation large and comfortable, food very good. Verdasco was incredibly knowedgeable and wanted us to share his knowedge. The highlight has to be the Bushman\'s walk which showed us how to make a fire from rubbing sticks, getting drinking water from a tuber dug up before our very eyes! Making soap solution to wash clothes and yourself (and drinkable!). Making and setting traps - we could go on, it was the best and most genuine cultural experience we have ever been on. "

"I loved Tau Pan. Don\'t come here if you expect "wall to wall game" - but having said that we had fabulous lion sightings and another lasting memory will be the butterflies and the sunsets. Tau Pan is a fabulous lodge and the staff are so welcoming and helpful. "
