Lions aplenty!

Excellent property. This was our second stay. We saw so many lions and cheetah thanks to our guide, Ignatius. We will return.

Stunning lodge in magic location by a water hole. Staff excellent. Guides well informed. In particular Dylan was outstanding as a guide and the best I have had anywhere. Food good but not exceptional. Advantage not in malaria zone. Would recommend this lodge highly.

One night isn't enough

Posted Aug 31, 2015 on Hotels
We only got to stay for one night as it was at the end of our trip on the way to the airport. The greeting and care that the staff takes to make you comfortable was excellent. The safari drives were also quite good. In fact with 11 South African visits we finally were able to photograph a Serval. The only minor negative was I'm a shower guy and in April it was quite cool and while the bath tub and toilet were inside the shower was not, so I had to wait until mid day to take my shower, not a big deal but it is what kept me from giving full marks to room comfort. One outstanding feature of all rooms is that they front the water hole. I mean no more than 15 or 20 feet from the edge. This allows you to enjoy the coming and goings of wildlife all day and night if you would like. Bottom line a good place to relax and unwind. We had just driven 9600km so we needed it. Next time we'll stay more than a single night.

Simply the best experience you can imagine !!

When you arrive to a true 5 Star establishment, you just know that you will have a fantastic stay: From we were greeted at the door from Tumi the first day until he sends us home full of new experiences for life the last, we were treated like royalty. However, Tau made us feel that way because it was like being taken in by a big, lovely family who truly enjoyed having its guests visiting. Our cabin overlooked a watering hole where we would see wild animals all day, it was cosy inside and always made comfortable by attentive staff. The game drives with Renain was calming, spectacular, picturesque, and a great joy to see more animals than I can recall all the names too. From breakfast through lunch to dinner outside in the Bomi our food was simply fantastic! We will recommend Tau to everyone we know, and will for sure return when we visit Africa soon again.

Pros: Location, Views, Food, Staff... you name it!
Cons: The road leading to the Tau Lodge gate. If you do not have a 4x4 vehicle, i WOULD NOT recommend it.
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!

Wonderful stay at Tau

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.
