Country: 
Botswana
Operator:

Introduction: 

Situated on an established sand ridge overlooking Tau Pan, this camp commands stunning views of the permanent Tau Pan water hole and the endless Kalahari horizon. Tau Pan Camp is situated inside the world famous Central Kalahari Game Reserve (CKGR) right on the edge of the beautiful Tau Pan.

The Central Kalahari Game Reserve (CKGR) is the largest game reserve in the world (52,800 sq km’s) and for many years was closed to the public, hence it is now known as being one of Africa’s last true wilderness areas.

Accommodation and Facilities: 

Guests are accommodated in 8 custom-built desert rooms under thatch, while the main area consists of a dining room, lounge area and a viewing deck. The camp also offers a swimming pool, interpretation centre/library and curio shop.

One of the rooms is a family room and a guide/pilot room is also available.

All rooms are solar powered, with fans, outside showers and have private viewing decks.

Activities: 

Game drives take place in open 4 x 4 vehicles.

Guided walks are undertaken with a ‘San’ who will explain and entertain you by answering all your questions about bush survival, right through to issues regarding the scope of life - from birth to marriage!

After the summer rains, whilst on a game drive, The CKGR gets animals such springbok, gemsbok and wildebeest in their thousands and is quite a sight to behold! Predators abound with plentiful lions – especially the famous Kalahari black-maned Lion. Cheetah, leopard and jackals also abound. Brown Hyenas and Wild Dogs are also found in the area.

Several species of antelopes make the trip to the sweet grasses of the CKGR which include the Eland, Springbok, Steenbok, Gemsbok, Hartebeest, Kudu and Duiker. Honey Badgers are regular visitors, as well as Ground Squirrels and many an hour can be wiled away watching these fascinating animals.

Bird life is also plentiful, with sightings of the world’s heaviest flying bird – the Kori Bustard.

*Please note that Tau Pan is in a national park and an ecological sensitive area, and for this reason night drives are not conducted and day drives have to remain on the main track roads.
