Autumn in the bush is a magical time when the hues and landscape change to warmer colors before winter. Hot toddies and conviviality abound on luxe, unpretentious safaris at Tau Game Lodge.

The game’s visibility enthralls visitors even more, as the animals are less inclined to seek shade after the summer heat has subsided in the Madikwe Game Reserve, which is situated in the North-West corner of South Africa, bordering the wilds of Botswana.

For 29 years, Tau has hosted visitors from around the world. Guest reports have mostly been along the lines of their having visited many safari lodges, some even more swish, but the welcoming team and comforting hospitality, paired with sublime game viewing and a waterhole visible from every room and hospitality deck, even from the two swimming pools, will beckon them to return to this eco-conscious lodge time and again.

Listening to the sounds of game trumpeting, roaring, tweeting, and barking their nocturnal supremacy is pure safari bliss. This is Tau, the place of the lion.

The Tau rangers are celebrated for their respect for nature and passion for the local flora and fauna. The lodge now has a ranger who is also a professional photographer to teach wildlife photography to guests using cameras and not only their phones – on request. He would take photographs of guests to further enhance and personalize their magical safari memories by arrangement.

Tau is pure, understated, 5-star luxury. It is family-friendly and offers a Cubz Club, babysitting services, special safaris and education for youngsters. It also affords the adults some quality safari, leisure, and spa time. Memorable weddings have been hosted here over the years.
