At Piper Pan you will not find many facilities, except the odd campsite under a shaded tree.

The 'Pan' itself is an ancient depression that used to be filled with water many years ago. Today, even in the rainy season, no water is seen in the pan, except grass and shrubs and the occasional tree dotting the landscape.

Especially during the dry season, many animals congregate at the man-made waterhole to drink. Sightings of Gemsbok and Springbok are common, and if you are lucky a sighting of a cheetah.

Address :  Central Kalahari, Botswana

Travelling Information

Driving from Xade to Piper Pan took a traveller about 6 hours in April 2010, as it was pouring with rain. The track can then get extremely muddy, and where there is no mud, it will be covered in water.
In the dry season it can take anywhere between 3 and 6 hours as it's a very bumpy and rough track. (April 2010).
