Privately owned Tau Game Lodge was built in 1995 and overlooks a vast natural waterhole, which attracts a variety of game, as does the diverse vegetation, which thrives in the fertile topsoil. Each morning you start off with a game drive where you may have a chance to view the “Big Five” (lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo and elephant), returning for breakfast. Game drives are conducted in open vehicles, allowing for great photographic opportunities. Experienced guides and trackers offer excellent service. Spend the rest of the morning at leisure. After lunch, depart for an educational game walk with an armed guide or watch educational videos, or simply relax and enjoy the ambience of the Lodge. After tea, depart for your evening’s game drive to view the nocturnal animals. Return for abarbeque in the “Boma” under the African stars.

The décor and furnishings are Africa-inspired and the rooms are equipped with both air-conditioning and ceiling fans. Thirty rustic thatched chalets are spread out in U-formation on either side of the lodge, offering excellent views of animals approaching the water from the opposite bank.
Each chalet has its own wooden deck, which allows one to experience the bush in privacy and is equipped with an en-suite bathroom and open-air shower.
Each of the two corner units, on either side (and furthest away from) the lodge, have been linked with the next-door unit by a communal outdoor lounge. These chalets can be utilised for two couples travelling together or for parents with small children sharing the room.
