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.
"Our first experience of visiting a camp in the Central Kalahari Game Preserved Area"
We stayed at Tau Pan for 3 nights and had a most wonderful game viewing experience. The camp staff under the management of Hilda are all extremely friendly, courteous, helpful and skilled. Our guides Mat and Custom were marvelously knowledgeable about all species of mammals, reptiles and birds and extremely sharp-eyed. The accommodation is to a very high standard and extremely comfortable. Each lodge has a veranda with views to the waterhole in the distance. The communal areas were well designed, meals were beautifully prepared and presented. Being part of the national game preserve there are strict rules which prevent vehicles leaving the various various tracks through the preserve. This is to protect the fragile habitat. However it was possible to get very good views of the many species. I'm uploading some of the very many photos I took on the various drives......
"great place, superb view, good game drives"
We crashed this place as we were crossing the CKGR by our rented Overland Car and did not like the asigne campground. The staff was friendly and making it possible to stay for two nights even if we did not book in advance. Game Drive was great, as a sundowner they offer some different drinks and snacks in a unique environment. As Dinner is sereved at a large table you get to know the other guetst and can have a chat with them. The fireplace is often used for adidtional chats with the ranger and other guests. I love the outdoor shower.
"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?
