Tau Pan Camp

Tau Pan Camp is the first semi-permanent camp to be situated inside the world famous Central Kalahari Game Reserve right on the edge of the beautiful Tau Pan, commanding stunning views of the permanent Tau Pan water hole and the endless Kalahari horizon. December to April is when this region comes into its own with a plethora of plains game and predators, including Kalahari black-maned lion, and there are usually very few others to share the scene with. The bird life is also enormously varied.
