Tau Pan Camp is set on the edge of Tau (lion) Pan in the vast and unique Central Kalahari Game Reserve. The Kalahari Desert is the largest sand basin in the world, and stretches some 2 500 kilometres from the northern regions of South Africa through to Namibia, Angola, and into the Democratic Republic of Congo. The landscape of the Park is a largely flat landscape, interspersed with gentle valleys, sand dunes, and pans.
Accommodation is in 8 custom designed en suite tents, set under thatch. One unit has been set-aside for use by families. The camp offers truly incredible views from the ridge of an ancient sand dune, an unusual experience in a land as flat as Botswana.
Activities offered at Tau Pan are game drives, day trips to the well-known Deception Valley, Sunday, Piper and Passarge Pans, star gazing, bush brunches on Tau Pan, and nature walks with Bushman trackers. An early departure greatly increases the chances of unusual sightings, as the majority of mammals are active in the early morning and late afternoon, when temperatures are lower.Game drives are undertaken in custom designed vehicles seating no more than six guests at a time. Guests are guided by a two person team of professional guide and tracker. As Tau Pan is situated inside a Game Reserve, in a highly sensitive area, no off-road driving or night drives are permitted.
