Days are cooler and evenings call for delicious hot toddies and conviviality around safari log fires

This is also the time when the visibility of game now less inclined to seek shade, enthralls visitors to Tau Game Lodge in Madikwe. For 26 years, visitors from around the world have praised Tau Game Lodge for their welcoming team comforting hospitality, sublime game viewing, and the waterhole visible from every room.

Expect gourmet meals, Big Five sightings, bush sundowners, and romantic dinners à deux against a sound backdrop of roaring lion and hooting owls.
