Tau Pan camp is a unique safari destination and offers magnificent views of the Kalahari and some of the best game viewing areas in Botswana.
Tau Pan’s large communal thatched hut has a spacious lounge area that flows into the dining area, and both rooms lead out onto a wooden terrace which houses the swimming pool, a open-air boma, and several loungers to relax on in between safari activities.
Tau Pan Camp has nine custom-built rooms, all of which sit under a thatched roof and are raised on elevated platforms with an extended viewing deck.
Each unit features a sitting area, an en suite bathroom with dual vanities, and an outdoor shower for those hot Kalahari afternoons
The Central Kalahari Game Reserve is famous for the migratory animals such as springbok, zebra and wildebeest in their thousands. Predators are plentiful with lions, especially the famous Kalahari black-maned lion, cheetah, leopard and jackals. Brown hyenas and wild dog are also found in the area. Several species of antelope can be found in the area which includes eland, springbok, steenbok, gemsbok, hartebeest, kudu and duiker. Honey Badgers are regular visitors as well as ground squirrels and meerkat. Bird life is prolific with the world’s heaviest flying bird – the Kori Bustard being common as well as the Black Korhaan who continuously calls during the daytime. Ostrich are seen roaming free, usually in large flocks. All the Sand Grouse species identified in southern Africa live here from the Double Banded to the Namaqua which are a sight to see in the mornings, when they flock to the waterholes in their thousands, to drink and bathe in the water holes. Raptors from the most common Pale-chanting Goshawk to the Rock Kestrel, Bateleurs and Brown and Tawny Eagles are also seen regularly. The dry season (May-September) is also a good time to visit the Central Kalahari Game Reserve as the animals congregate close to any surface water and pans.
