About Tau Pan Camp
- Elegant Timber & Thatch Chalet
- En Suite Bathroom & Outdoor Shower
- Private Viewing Deck
- Four-Sleeper Family Chalet
Cooled by its thick walls and thatched roof, each chalet at Tau Pan is raised off the ground – all the better to sit and absorb the beguiling view from the veranda. Decor is tasteful and ethnic with earthy colours and natural materials catching the eye. An oversized double or twin bed takes centre stage while an indoor sitting area, en suite bathroom and outdoor shower complete the comforts. One chalet has inter-leading doors to make it a four-sleeper unit, ideal for families.
- Swimming Pool & Sun Loungers
- Dining Room, Bar & Lounge
- Curio Shop
Guests are encouraged to relax at Tau Pan’s main building where a pool, bar and lounge provide welcome diversions on a hot Kalahari afternoon. The huge viewing deck is the focal point, providing great views over the waterhole and its thirsty wildlife. Chairs around the fire pit make for a great conversation at the end of the day, and the camp’s telescope offers a chance to spot planets in an unforgettably starry sky.
Activities at Tau Pan Camp
- Morning, Afternoon & Full Day Game Drives
- Waterhole Game Viewing & Stargazing
- Nature Walks with Bushman Guides
- Bird Watching
Set in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve itself, Tau Pan Camp offers morning and afternoon game drives, augmented by short nature walks with San Bushman. The drives are led by an experienced guide and tracker while the vehicle’s elevation and open-sided nature makes it a great photographic base. It’s also one of the best destinations in Botswana to spot smaller and more elusive animals such as wild cat, aardwolf, meerkat and honey badger.
Dry-season game viewing is often based around the last few water sources where predators launch ambushes on thirsty antelope, giraffe and wildebeest. In summer, the rains turn the Kalahari green and the new-born springbok lambs attract big cats and wild dogs. Summer is also highly recommended for bird watching: thousands of migrant birds arrive to fill the air with colour and song. Full-day game drives are recommended at this time of year, ranging deep into the Kalahari grasslands.
