    Incredible experience

    We really loved our stay in this hotel, as soon as we walked in, we saw lots of elephants and entelopes drinking from the waterhole which is next to the hotel, it was jaw dropping experience. We loved our reice a day fame drives too and were able to see all big 5. Were able to drive to animals really close. Food was also amazing and changed frequently

    Wow!

    We had an amazing weekend at Tau. I only wish we were able to stay more than two nights! We booked the standard chalet, and were pleasantly surprised to have a balcony/patio with views of an amazing waterhole that several animals frequented throughout the day (variety of birds, crocodiles, kudu, impala, zebra, giraffe, and elephants). The food was AMAZING, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and our guide was extremely knowledgeable! Overall it was an unforgettable experience and we can't wait to go back!

    pLAN TO GO BACK NEXT YEAR

    Tau Lodge is located in the Madikwe Game Reserve in northwestern South Africa. My wife and I went to have the African safari experience and we were not disappointed. Daily rates include all meals and snacks, twice daily 3 hour bush trips (early morning and late afternoon), and individual rooms w/bath overlooking the water hole. You can sit on your deck between bush trips and watch as various types of animals meander into the water hole for a drink (we saw a herd of 12-15 elephants, warthog, various antelope and zebra plus birds too numerous to mention). Our ranger Megan proved very knowledgeable and entertaining who proved adept at finding numerous animals to observe. We saw 4 of the big 5 (elephant, rhino, Cape buffalo and lions), missing only a sighting of the always elusive leopard. Thanks to my wife (known affectionately in the family as "snake bait"), Megan even saw her first black mamba since she has been at Madikwe. Overall an enjoyable experience which we plan to repeat.

    Best Lodge by far

    We stayed at 4 different lodges in the Madikwe and Pilanesberg parks. This was by far the best lodge, with the best views, the best safari guides, excellent food, wine, spa, and overall lodge comfort. We will definitely be back. If you can, ask for Mike Rae to by your safari guide. You will not be disappointed..
