Over Kwando Tau Pan
Gelegen in het Central Kalahari Game Reserve, was het Kwando Tau Pan het eerste safari-kamp dat hier is opgebouwd. In dit kamp is veel aandacht besteed aan het gebruik van natuurlijke materialen en alles werkt op zonne-energie. Er zijn negen nette ingerichte kamers, waar veel natuurlijke kleuren zijn gebruikt. Naast het maken van een game drive en een wandelsafari, kunt u hier ook 's avonds sterren kijken. Het kamp kijkt uit op een permanente waterpoel, wat altijd veel wild aantrekt. De maaltijden, lokale drankjes en safari-activiteiten zijn inbegrepen. Het altijd vriendelijke personeel zorgt ervoor dat u zich hier helemaal thuis voelt.

Gelegen in het Central Kalahari Game Reserve in Botswana.
• Game drives
Vanuit Maun bezoekt u Kalahari Desert. Een gebied waar vroeger nog voornamelijk bosjesmannen woonden, is langzamerhand overgenomen door Afrikaans wild. Het reservaat bestaat uit oude rivierbeddingen, open vlaktes en zoutpannen. Met name in het noordelijke gedeelte van het reservaat vindt u wilde dieren. Ze zijn hier nog niet zo gewend aan veel voertuigen en daardoor nog redelijk schuw.
Interessante dieren die hier leven zijn: leeuwen, hyena's, luipaarden, cheeta's, giraffen, gemsbokken, springbokken en jakhalzen.
"The Ultimate Safari in Botswana"
Botswana is a very special place. Of all the 4 safari camps I stayed on this first trip to Africa, Tau Pan camp was the most special of all. Located on a ridge in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, Tau Pan camp offered an unequal vista from each lodge. Each lodge at Tau Pan is covered with a thatched roof, so from afar, the camp looked like a herd of elephants and blended beautifully with the landscape. It was an amazing sight. "Tau" means lions in Botswanan and we learned that there were 5 or 6 prides of lions in the pan. So, every night, throughout the night, we listened to lions' roar. That was scary. One time, they roared immediately after the howling of the jackals as if to tell the jackals to shut up. That was hilarious. These roars were so close that we thought the lions were just below our veranda. And we were not that far off because a watering hole was no more than one km. below the ridge. This watering hole was the biggest draw to wildlife: Kudus, wildebeests, lions, cheetahs, springboks, jackals, warthogs, hundreds of birds, you name it. Every time we looked up, a live show unfolded in front of our eye. We watched a lion give chase to the Kudus - twice. The third morning we watched a cheetah come for a drink. Other than the other two travellers who left the next morning after we arrived, we had the camp and the staff to ourselves. The staff and Vasco, our guide and Skoopa, our tracker were exceptional and accomodating. The food was excellent. In fact, the food at Tau Pan and the other 2 Kwando camps was the best food I found during my full month trip to Africa. The draw back is that Tau Pan is located far deep in the Kalahari. It takes a hour flight in a 4 seater airplane from Maun. My friend and I actually flew from Lebala, another Kwando camp that is in the Linyanti area on the border of Namibia. That meant 1 hour and 40 minutes of bumpy ride in that small airplane. I was so sick from the ride that I had to forego the evening game drive upon arrival at Tau Pan. If I had to do it all over again, I would have skipped that long plane ride and gone straight to Tau Pan. All in all, I love, love, love Tau Pan. To me, it was what I had imagined a safari in Africa would be.
"5 Safari Camps in Two Weeks. "
Everything about this camp is outstanding! The food. The rooms. The game drives. All the staff as well as Jacob and G!!! This was the best of all we visited which were run by multiple Safari companies.
"Luxury in the Kalahari"
The Tau Pan Camp offered nothing but pleasant surprises. The location offers access to some of the best wildlife in Botswana (and let's be honest, that's the primary reason one thinks of going). We even had a pride of lions to welcome us to the camp! Fortunately, they were down at the watering hole (another fantastic feature of this location), but it was fantastic to see these majestic creatures. Our guides were very amiable and amazing, pointing out many things every day that we would have easily missed. Everyone working at the camp was attentive, diligent, and delightfully sociable. The food was great and our lodgings certainly exceeded expectations. If you're considering booking a trip here, why are you still waiting?
"Mesmerising views over the pan"
We got a last minute travel to Tau Pan, but everything worked well. The airline company picked us up from Maun and helped us to flight. Tau Pan crew was already waiting at the airstrip, and so were the oryx and ostriches too. The huts are very comfortable: huge beds, flush toilet, shower inside and outside, laundry service, drinking water, sunbeds.. No mobile network and other charging also at the main building, but no problem with that - this is holiday! We had driving safaris twice a day and typically already saw animals at the waterhole, when we were having breakfast outside by the fire (cheetah, hyenas, giraffes etc). The safaris were very professional and safe. We had a local guide and a san tracker. The views from the huts is amazing, and in the night time you can just stare the Milkyway! The meals were superb - the best we had in Botswana. But best of all, the staff in Tau Pan lodge is amazing. They made us feel very welcome and almost like part of the family. The Camp overall is fantastic, but I would return just because of the amazing service (well, and the animals and views of course).
"Room with a view"
Tau Pan is a great camp in the Kalahari. Located on an ancient dune, you have great views of the dessert. close to camp is a waterhole, which is very productive. All day, animals come to drink. During our stay even lions visited the waterhole. Rooms are very spacious, with a good bed, and comfortable bathroom with double bassin and a shower. Our guide Vasco was very good. Great knowledge, and together with tracker G, found lots of animals and birds for us, including beautiful male lions. Staff was very friendly and helpful with a personal touch. Tau pan is a highly recommended in your intinery if you want to get a broader picture of the different landscapes of Botswana, next to areas like Okovango Delta , Savuti or Chobe.
