Tau Pan is a simple but comfortable camp perched on the ridge of an ancient sand dune, giving it wonderful views over the limitless plains of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. The Kalahari is known as a thirstland because for much of the year there is very little standing water – Tau Pan, however, is built beside a permanent waterhole. The camp has been constructed with the environment in mind, utilising only solar power to generate electricity, pumping water from deep beneath the desert and treating waste water before returning it to the ground.

‘SHOULDER’ DRY SEASON

A brief dry interlude before the long rains. The Great Migration takes place within the southern regions of the Serengeti ecosystem during this period.

Its proximity to the equator means that the Serengeti has very consistent temperatures throughout the year. While the high altitude (1,140 to 2,099m/3,740 to 6,886 ft) moderates these to a very pleasant 25°C/77°F to 27°C/80°F, the mornings can still be a little chilly, so be sure to bring a light fleece!

There are two wet seasons in Tanzania. The first, known as the ‘long rains’, takes place between March and May, while the milder short rains take place between November and December.

WET SEASON - 'LONG RAINS'

The beginning and end of the rains varies each year, but generally, this period is the wettest time of the year. Travel to and from lodges is potentially difficult at times. This wet season is often characterised by overcast skies and consecutive days of rain. During this period the Great Migration starts to make its way north towards the Western Corridor of the Serengeti ecosystem.

Its proximity to the equator means that the Serengeti has very consistent temperatures throughout the year. While the high altitude (1,140 to 2,099m/3,740 to 6,886 ft) moderates these to a very pleasant 25°C/77°F to 27°C/80°F, the mornings can still be a little chilly, so be sure to bring a light fleece!

There are two wet seasons in Tanzania. The first, known as the ‘long rains’, takes place between March and May, while the milder short rains take place between November and December.

'MAIN' DRY SEASON

A more stable and predictable time of the year, usually with clear skies. During this period the Great Migration will gradually move into the Lamai region of the Serengeti (the northernmost point), as well as the Masai Mara in Kenya.

WET SEASON - 'SHORT' RAINS

Weather in this season can be rather unpredictable, with sunshine interspersed with occasional heavy showers and thunderstorms. Though still considered the wet season, the rains are not as intense during this period as during the long rains. November can therefore still be a great time to visit.

The Great Migration will start moving back towards the Southern Plains of the Serengeti from the Masai Mara. Given the distance involved, we tend to see a more fragmented movement of wildlife.
