Tau Game Lodge
4 STAR NORTH WEST LODGE ACCOMMODATION
MADIKWE GAME RESERVE LODGES
Tau Game Lodge, (Tau meaning Place of the Lion), lies in a malaria free area in the heart of the 75 000 hectare Madikwe Game Reserve. Rocky outcrops dot the spectacular landscape made up of scattered hillocks, open plains and sweeping grasslands. The position of the lodge affords uninterrupted views across a bird-populated pan with the chalets following the curve of the water's edge. Animals and birds can be viewed from your private sundeck or outdoor shower.
After the evening game drive African delicacies are served from the open boma around the campfire under starry African skies
The Lodge is decorated in true African style with unusual artifacts, masks and large rugs decorating the high-ceilinged foyer. Vivid animal-print fabrics adorn settees in the upside bar. Guest areas comprise a spacious reception, comfortable lounge, indoor and open-air dining areas and a bar deck suspended on stilts. The bar deck affords excellent views of a busy waterhole, with animals approaching the water from the opposite bank. During mealtimes guests can enjoy generous traditional feasts either in the dining room or around a huge, crackling fire in the boma.
Each chalet is equipped with an en-suite bathroom and private wooden deck with open-air shower, allowing one privacy to enjoy the full bush experience.
Corner chalet units, on either side of the lodge, are linked by a communal outdoor lounge and can be utilised for couples travelling together or for parents with small children sharing the room.
