Tau Pan Camp

Kalahari & the Pans

Rating: Deluxe    Price from: £295 - £345 pp full board

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!

Tau Pan 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.

The 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 guided walks.

The 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.

Prof. Roger Butlin

"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!"

Mrs Janet Van Den Berge
"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."
Iain Balch
"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. "
Dave and Jenny Cox
"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. "
