Wonderful stay at TauPosted Feb 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
We had an excellent time here. The staff were friendly and professional, the game viewing was excellent - so many lions - and the food was out of this world. We would definitely return. If booking again i would ask for room 3, 4 or 5 as they are well placed to see all the game.

pLAN TO GO BACK NEXT YEARPosted Nov 30, 2011
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.
