Tau Pan Camp: picture gallery


Tau Pan is one of two permanent camps inside the Central Kalahari Game Reserve.
The main area is completely open to one side…
...and includes a small lounge area.
Right behind you will find the bar…
…where you are invited to help yourself to a cold drink…
…or a hot tea or coffee.
The spacious dining area...
...contains a large communal table.
Outside you will find a plunge pool with sunloungers, and a nearby firepit.
The main area and the nine chalets of the camp face an active waterhole.
The chalets are spacious with a natural, simple interior.
All include either a double bed or twin beds…
…a sitting area and a writing desk.
Each chalet is equipped with shelves and hanging space, as well as a safe.
The en-suite bathroom includes twin handbasins, a separate flushing toilet, and…
…both indoor and outdoor showers.
On the balcony you can enjoy some amazing views.
The activities include an informative nature walk with one of the Bushman trackers,…
…as well as morning and afternoon game drives in 4WD vehicles.
Game drives feature a guide and tracker team, which helps to maximise game sightings.
The most common sightings are steenboks, giraffe and gemsbok but if your lucky...
...you may see some of the CKGR's predators...
...occasionally they even come to camps and visit the waterhole!
