Built by campers, for campers

Tau Camp


TAU CAMP is situated in a beautiful open woodland, where Giraffe, Eland, Zebra, Nyala and Impala are commonly found. The camp is spread over an area of about four hectares, with the camp sites and the facilities connected by little paths winding through the woodland. A splash pool below the campsite is a lovely place to spend some time cooling off after a walk.

There are three individual campsites Hornbill, Francolin and Drongo, They are 150 to 200 meters apart so are very private. Each site has a fireplace (firewood is supplied) and a tap,  there is also plug point with power for campers to plug an extension if required. All three sites share the bathrooms and kitchenette. Each campsite can accommodate either one couple or several families from the same party.

The spacious family bathroom has a shower, hand basin and toilet, and a seperate toilet, it has a thatched roof and incorporates existing rocks as part of the shower floor. Netting windows offer lovely views onto the surrounding bush. 

There is a  plug point in this bathroom for hair dryers or charging cell phones. Gas geysers at both showers and the kitchen ensure an endless supply of instant hot water.

An outside shower built under the spreading branches of wild Syringa trees, offers a totally different experience. Showering under the warmth of the African sun, or at night with the twinkling stars and a huge silver moon.

The outside toilet is discreetly situated in a thicket of Lekkerbreek, both of these facilities are constructed around existing trees.

The kitchenette has two washing sinks, an info area and a table and chairs for those wishing to swop traveling experiences.

A small splash pool is situated discreetly below the campsite, in the woodland. It has a rustic fence to keep children and the animals out. Surrounded by green lawn and with wooden loungers, it is a lovely place to relax, cool off, and watch the game wandering past. The pool has a large martini step, perfect to sit and watch the sun setting over the surrounding bush. 

The whole campsite blends beautifully into the surrounding bush, as there are no fences the animals are constantly in and around the campsite, creating the perfect camping experience.
