Tau Pan Camp
Tau Pan Camp is the first semi-permanent camp to be situated inside the 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.
Tau Pan has 9 airy and spacious custom-built desert chalets, with impressive views through the full length gauze screens. The crescent shaped main area has expansive views and encompasses the communal dining and bar areas, leading in turn to the fire pit, viewing deck and plunge pool.
