Winter in the South African bush is safari heaven. The days are mild and the nights just cold enough to want to indulge in delicious, unpretentious food and snuggle into cosy blankets for those refreshing early-morning game drives.  The aromas of your early morning safari coffee break will blend with the heady scent of the verdant bush and all its wonderous creatures, big and small.

The Tau Game Lodge team ensures your safari needs are met with their warm, efficient, 5-star service, whilst nature provides a superb canvas of visibility, when the bush is not so dense, to ensure game is observed in its most prolific form.

For 25 years Tau Game Lodge has enthralled visitors from every corner of the planet, including honeymooners, conference guests, families and groups of friends who simply want to celebrate the best a safari could possibly offer. 

Familiar with the habits and quirks of every species of game and bird spotted along the way, the rangers inform you about nature’s medicine chest, comprising the medicinal aspects of the flora you encounter along the way. They extend their heart-felt knowledge over dinner, which makes for memorable conversations under the stars around a camp fire, as well as in the modern out-of-Africa ambience of the Tau indoor dining areas.

The background sounds of the bush, from a lion’s roar to the barking of a jackal or the trumpeting of an elephant, are just some of the myriad safari memories to be made at Tau. Your final thoughts before drifting into slumber could include how bright the stars are and how big the sky is in this bushveld paradise.

The lodge is enclosed within the reserve, resulting in the humans being subtly fenced in, while game, including several crocodiles, roam free, including the spectacular birdlife.

The Tau Cubz Club, Tau Spa Oasis and Tau Conference Centre make this an ideal malaria-free destination for romantic, family, leisure or corporate safaris. The two lodge swimming pools, of which one is an infinity pool, also offer vistas of the bush and waterhole. G&T, darling?

Tau Game Lodge opened its 5-star safari doors in 1995 and offers 30 rooms, from Standard to Luxury to Family Suites.
