      Tau Pan

      Solar-Powered Luxury

      Tau Pan offers truly incredible views from the ridge of an ancient sand dune, an unusual experience in a land as flat as Botswana, and overlooks the famous Tau Pan - recognized for its stark beauty and remoteness. The first safari camp to be built in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, Tau Pan is a model of environmental sensitivity. As with its sister camp, Nxai Pan, Tau Pan has been constructed with delicate ecologies in mind. Both utilize only solar power for the generation of electricity, heating of water and pumping of water from deep under the Kalahari sands. Waste water is treated in a state-of-the-art sewage treatment plant and the fully treated water is returned to the sands of its origin. Tau Pan accommodates up to eighteen guests in eight specially designed thatched units on raised decks, one of which is a family unit accommodation four guests. Activities offered at Tau Pan are game drives, day trips to the well-known Deception Valley as well as Sunday, Piper and Passarge Pans, star gazing, bush brunches on Tau Pan, and nature walks with Bushman trackers. The daily safari routine usually involves an early morning wake up call, and a gathering around the fireside for piping hot tea and coffee, a bowl of sumptuous porridge and freshly baked muffins. As well as offering fresh, early-morning air and a dazzling sunrise, an early departure greatly increases the chances of unusual sightings, as the majority of mammals are active at the beginning and end of the day when temperatures are lower. Game drives are undertaken in custom-designed Toyota game viewing vehicles seating no more than six guests at a time in two rows of three. The use of only two rows ensures that guests are never so far from the front of the vehicle that they are unable to hear the guide or tracker's interpretation, even while driving. Guests are guided by a two-person team of a professional guide and a tracker - a special feature of the Kwando Safaris wildlife experience. This team enables the guide to communicate points of interest and the complex interrelations that exist throughout the natural world, while the tracker ensures no sightings or tracks are missed.
