An Untold Vastness
Tau Pan, opened on the 01 March 2009, has been designed to blend in with and complement the surrounding environment of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve The Central Kalahari Game Reserve is the largest game reserve in the world (52,800 sq km’s) and for many years was closed to the public, hence it is known for being one of Africa’s last true wilderness areas. This is a place to experience solitude and to feel dwarfed by the expansive landscape that surrounds the camp.
San Camp overlooks the endless white salt of the extinct Makgadikgadi sea and offers a unique chance to explore the Kalahari A stay at San Camp is a true desert experience focusing on the area's geology, archaeology and anthropology as well as species unique to the area such as aardvark, gemsbok and springbok. San Camp is the only place where guests are virtually guaranteed to see the rare brown hyena and explore the Kalahari on walks with a gang of habituated but wild meerkats. Uncharted Africa Safari co. has taken the decision to consolidate their operations and postpone the opening of San Camp to 2010.
Jack’s Camp is pitched on a low grassland knoll amongst an oasis of desert palms and Kalahari acacia. Situated alongside the awe-inspiring Ntwetwe Pan, this luxury camp is quite unique. It offers great game viewing alongside the pan which is a haven of birdlife in the wet months and attracts bigger game during the dry months. Jack's Camp was originally established in the 1960's by the late Jack Bousfield, who discovered this area whilst on a trapping expedition in the Makgadikgadi Pans. He saw the beauty of this land and developed his vision of a luxury camp under the palm trees.
Nxai Pan is auniquely styled camp, overlooking a waterhole, on the edge of the Nxai Pan. Newly opened in February 2009, Nxai Pan is the only permanent camp within Nxai Pan National Park and is perfectly placed for guests wanting to visit this unique and beautiful area. Nxai Pan is a fossil lake-bed and therefore the landscape is largely covered by grassland, dotted with clusters of Acacia trees, with some mopane woodland in the north. During the rains, the pans become covered in grass and attract huge herds of antelope, and in turn predators.
