We had the pleasure to stay 3 nights at Hyena Pan during our Botswana tour. These were - by far - the most enjoyable nights of the entire trip which took us 15 days trough Botswana and Zimbabwe. The tents are incredibly spacious, including a full-sized twin bed, a charging station for your electronics (great idea!) and leave enough room to comfortably walk around the bed past a lockable cupboard into the bathroom which features a very well working shower, a toilet and sink. The bathroom looks more like what you would expect in a designer hotel than in a tent.
The best part however is the raised platform. It includes the table for meals, some couches and lounge chairs and a small pool. And a view over the waterhole. During the first evening we were not sure what we could expect to see so close to the camp. Only half an hour later the first elephant appeared, seemingly out of nowhere. A great start, but we were even luckier, during the next 3 days we did see roughly 50 of them by our estimation, also a couple of giraffes, a rather curios honey badger, lots of birds, some mongooses and one night even a glimpse of a hyena.
And last but not least we need to mention the staff, clearly the best, most helpful and friendly that we have met during our stay in Botswana. And served amazing dinners, breakfast and lunches, meals with such variety and quality we didn’t expect in a camp.
If we should ever take another tour through Botswana this is clearly a place we would love to stay again.
