Tau Game Lodge
On the far Northern border of South Africa lies a beautiful area known as the Groot Marico and it is in this spectacular setting, in the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve, that Privately owned Tau Game Lodge is situated.
Madikwe Game Reserve is currently the country’s fourth largest game reserve, comprising 75,000 ha, and situated in the North West Province, boasts year-round game viewing. It is one of the few reserves where one can view a wide variety of fauna.
Breeding herds of Elephant, White and Black Rhino, Lion, Cheetah, Spotted and Brown Hyena, Buffalo, Leopard, Zebra and the endangered Wild Dog, various Antelope species, Giraffe, Ostrich and Warthog, together with an array of small mammals, are amongst the magnificent animals that roam the reserve. Madikwe is also home to a bird population of over 250 different species.
Tau Game Lodge was built in 1995 and overlooks a natural waterhole, which attracts a variety of game, as does the diverse vegetation that thrives in the fertile topsoil. The lodge has since been revamped and offers comfort and luxury, while still having a bush feel to it.
Thirty luxury chalets are spread out in U-formation on either side of the lodge, offering excellent views of animals approaching the waterhole from the opposite bank. The lodge has a 5 star rating and chalets are equipped with both air-conditioning and ceiling fans, mini-bars, safe , tea and coffee facilities, en-suite bathroom with open-air shower, and each has its own private deck, allowing one to experience the bush in privacy.
Families with children are welcome at Tau Game Lodge.
Although children under the age of 6 years are not allowed to join adults on the standard game drives, a shorter kiddies’ safari of approximately an hour is offered and the Tau Cubz Club programme is in place for their entertainment.
20 Standard chalets can accommodate 2 adults sharing, while the more spacious “Deluxe chalets”, with comfortable seating areas, can accommodate parents and children wishing to share the same room.
The sliding doors allow for spectacular views of the breathtaking beautiful tranquillity of the rugged surroundings of the diverse bushveld
The state-of the art Convention Centre, which is situated at walking distance from the lodge, can seat up to 150 delegates and is equipped with high quality equipment, offering the ideal conference venue.
the Tau Spa Oasis is a calm sanctuary that reflects the soul of Africa with its natural surroundings enhancing your experience. Indulge your senses in a unique fusion of therapies designed to replenish and soothe body, mind and soul.
The Tau Foundation was set up with an eye to funding community development and is delivering tangible results. Guests visiting the lodge are offered the opportunity to visit the local village of Supingstad with our community officer.
To allow our visitors the opportunity to plant protected tree species and to learn a little about the trees that they are planting, thereby playing an active role in conservation, our rangers started the Tau Tree Fund.
Tau endeavours to give back to the community and the environment in every aspect of our business, always keeping in mind the success of all involved in the projects which Tau supports.
