Yule love every day spent at Tau Game Lodge from the game drives to the spa pampering.

Christmas in this wild location offers game drives, gourmet meals and spectacular views everywhere from crocodiles lazing on the embankment to elephants trumpeting their arrival. Problem is that once you spend a family Christmas in the bush, you’ll be planning the next one sooner than you can say ‘deck the halls’

A safari day at Tau Game Lodge starts with an early wake-up call for the first game drive. Layer up as early mornings are cool. Meet your ranger at the hospitality area of the lodge for a coffee and fresh muffin.

Each safari vehicle takes a maximum of six guests to  see the game. You can also opt for a  private safari vehicle at an additional fee.

The Tau team has adopted additional health and hygiene measures to provide guests with complete peace of mind during their visit, from arrival to settling into their rooms. Each room undergoes a meticulous deep cleaning before all guest arrivals.

The culinary team’s delicious and healthy meals are served a-la carte and tables are spaced at an appropriate distance.

The live web camera at the iconic Tau waterhole serves as a reminder that the natural world continues its flow. Daily sightings include African wild dog, herds of elephant and buffalo, lion, the entire spectrum of antelope, and a plethora of birdlife, stealthily observed by the resident crocodiles.
