Client Rating for Botswana 5/5 from 120 reviews

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.
