Tau Pan has just eight rooms, each with a private viewing deck as well as an indoor and outdoor shower. The communal area of the camp also has a number of additional amenities, including a swimming pool and library.
The camp sits in a secluded spot on top of a ridge of ancient sand dunes and this keeps the rooms at a pleasant temperature as they catch the breeze. This elevated position also means that you can enjoy wildlife-viewing from the camp; it is possible to see various bird species and herds of antelope, zebra and elephant wandering across the plains.
The camp aims to be environmentally sustainable as it utilises solar power for electricity and water heating, and aims to have as little impact on the environment as possible.
