TAU PAN CAMP

Tau Pan Camp is the first semi-permanent camp inside the Central Kalahari Game Reserve and offers truly incredible views from the elevated ridge of an ancient dune, an unusual experience in a land as flat as Botswana and overlooks the famous Tau Pan – recognised for its stark beauty and remoteness.

Activities offered at Tau Pan Camp are game drives, day trips to the well-known Deception Valley, Sunday, Piper and Passarge Pans, star gazing, and nature walks with Bushman trackers.

‘Tau’ which means lion in Setswana, is so named for the pride of iconic black-maned Kalahari lions who frequent the camp (with a particular preference for the family tent!).

Species found in the Kalahari include oryx, the desert-adapted springbok, jackals, the rare brown hyena, red-crested Korhaan, and herds of wildebeest.

Accommodation at Tau Pan Camp:

As with its sister camp, Nxai Pan, Tau Pan Camp has been constructed with the area’s ecologies in mind.

Both utilise only solar power for electricity generation, heating water, and pumping water from deep under the Kalahari sands.

Wastewater is treated in a state-of-the-art sewerage treatment plant and the fully treated water is returned to the sands from whence it came.

9 environmentally adapted en-suite tents including 1 family tent are set on raised decks, affording the same spectacular views over the plains.

Each has an indoor and outdoor shower, double-basin vanity, open wardrobe, King-sized double bed, living area, and writing desk.

The main area of the camp is set around the fireplace, which is the ideal spot for game viewing down to the waterhole.

A telescope is also provided for guests’ use.

The bar, lounge, curio shop, and dining area all encircle the fireplace.

The camp at Tau Pan also has a sleep-out deck on the eastern side of the camp.

In an area as remote and isolated as the Kalahari Desert, the light pollution is minimal to none, and consequently, the stargazing is simply magnificent and unrivaled by most other locations on Earth. Having an unobstructed view of the night sky to fall asleep under is a truly memorable experience. The elevated sleep-out deck consists of a double bed, a basin, and a WC.

This experience is available on a ‘first come first serve’ basis upon arrival in camp, however, guests staying 3 nights or more in Tau Pan Camp can reserve this pre-arrival with their agent.
