Tau Game Lodge

Tau Game Lodge (Tau meaning ‘lion’ in Tswana) is in the far north-western corner of malaria-free, Big 5 Madikwe Game Reserve. The vegetation here is less dense Kalahari-thornveld, easier for game spotting. The main lodge and luxury safari chalets all look out over the vast waterhole where a pageant of wildlife comes to drink at all hours of the day and night.
