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.
"nowhere in the world does is smell better after rains"
Only for that reason it should be included in any Botswana trip.......If that does not convince you the huge amounts of gemsbok will......Lions and leopards roam here too and the latter one does do this close to camp. We loved staying here again. Rooms are fabulous with amazing views over the whole pan. The food was really good too and we promise to be back again, and again, and again......Guides were good but we have seen better ones......
Matt was our guide throughout our stay, together with Custo his tracker and their spotting was amazing i.e. Matt saw two giraffe that I could not see even with binoculars! Rather than tents the accommodation is individual lodges which have breath-taking views over the desert. Matt guaranteed we would see oryx, ostrich and springbok and this was so true! After our first afternoon drive which ended with a sundowner and a stunning sunset we set out the next day for a whole day's drive which ended up being almost 12 hours! Thankfully the trucks are comfortable and the day passed all too quickly. The park is 550 sq kms (I think) which is apparently the size of Switzerland. We saw very few trucks (a few self-drive and one other lodge which is based some distance away). There are reasonably long periods when you don't see a lot (not recommended for young children) but as I said in another review the landscape is stunning and this is safari in its truest form i.e. natural and wild as opposed to some parks where 50 trucks can line up to see the 'cats', which was not what we wanted. The guides have to stick to the tracks which makes it harder for them to spot the game but they did a fine job. On our last morning we were starting a bushmans walk and learning how to make fire using sticks when the one truck that was on a drive spotted a male lion - we all went off and had a memorable half an hour tracking him and watching him drink from a water hole and walk right by our truck - a real bonus to end our holiday. Warm clothes are essential and I should have taken a beanie hat and warm coat in addition to the gilet I wore as the early mornings are very cold. The meals are very good and the staff are all extremely friendly. As with other lodges all drinks are included - no one took advantage of this, probably because we were all so weary at the end of the day and knew we had an early start! One thing the camp needs to do (and I mentioned this to the staff, and on the questionnaire) is provide mosquito nets over the beds. There is plenty of spray and a mosquito coil burns through the night until it has all gone but there are lots of insects and a net would prevent them landing on your pillow! A great experience if you want a true safari.
This part of the Kalahari is not a desert but in March was green but with little water on the surface. Game sightings were frequent but different. We saw lions galore, Oryx, ostrich, giraffe, a few elephant, birds galore, foxes and jackals galore too. We even saw two jackals bring down an impala. The guides were good especially Spencer and Voter who had a wicked sense of humour. Food was excellent and varied and they'd accommodate any special requirements they could.
"Lovely Camp with warm loving staff"
The camp is closely located to airstrip, the reception was warm and staff is good at what they do.. The food was nice and my vegetarian diet was nicely prepared.\ I was amazed to see the bar un attended and open to guest as per their wish. I would like to thank Mr Vasco for making a memorable game drive. The marinated Feta Cheese and Mushroom were awesome, Thank u Nadia & GG for that.
"Like staying with friends"
We recently spent three nights at Tau Pan and it was great! Transfer from the airstrip takes about ten minutes. You are picked up by your guide and tracker who will also take you on the game drives. Our guide was Vasco and we enjoyed him being our guide very much. He was friendly, funny and knowledgeable. Also, Leso and the rest of the team were always there to assist us and stuffed us with delicious food from the (early) morning until dinner. Sitting with the other guests and the team around the campfire felt like we were on vacation with a large group of friends. Unfortunately, we were a little late for the blooming of the flowers in the Kalahari, but that is not the camp's fault. The game drives were awesome because of our guide/tracker-team and because we were lucky seeing animals that many guests might not (leopards, lions, honey badger, etc.). We can definitely recommend this camp!
