Do you want something out of the ordinary during your next African safari to Botswana? Are you looking for the ultimate in game viewing combined with a complete understanding of the local nature and wildlife? Then Tau Pan Camp in the Kalahari is the perfect place for you to go! The first camp in the Kalahari Game Reserve, Tau Pan is built with environment and ecology in mind. Electricity is provided by solar panels and water is pumped from deep underneath the Kalahari Desert. Waste water goes to a modern sewerage facility and cleaned water is returned to the environment.
The camp is situated overlooking a watering hole on the Tau Pan salt pan, which is widely known for its beauty and game densities in summer. The camp is very intimate and provides accommodation for only eighteen guests in a group of thatched room chalets. These chalets are well-appointed for ultimate privacy and are made of naturally insulated materials to keep cool in summer and warm in winter. Each chalet has a large double bed, en-suite bathroom, writing desk and private viewing deck from where guests can observe game and birds. Large glass doors provide light and more viewing opportunities.
Activities are largely centred on game viewing and getting closer to nature, and this area offers some of the best game viewing in the region. A team of an expert guide and tracker form a unique system where four eyes are on the lookout for game, and the tracker can track game while the guide enlighten with information.
Hikes and game drives times are very flexible and can be taken at any time at the guests requests. The company operating this camp have a private concession, which means that their trackers can go off road and also conduct game drives during the night, which makes game viewing so much more exciting!
Other activities include various day trips to nearby and interesting locations, bush brunches on the pan, star gazing in the open skies and long hikes with Bushmen trackers. All of these elements fall together to create an unforgettable experience!
