Leroo La Tau is a luxury safari lodge set on a clifftop, overlooking the Boteti River and the sweeping grasslands of Botswana's Makgadikgadi Pans National Park. The lodge offers spectacular game viewing over the plains and dry river bed, especially during the migration season. A path leads down to a game-viewing hide, where you can watch hundreds of zebra and other animals coming to drink at the waterhole during the dry season.

Leroo La Tau accommodates 24 guests in luxurious East African-style safari tents, raised on individual wooden platforms, each with its own private viewing decks that provide superb views of the Boteti riverbed. Each tented chalet has two double beds with down duvets and en-suite bath and toilet facilities.
Leroo La Tau offers early morning game drives and spotlit night drives with experienced local safari guides within the lodge's private concession area. The best season for game viewing at Leroo La Tau is from April to October when large herds of zebra and other wildlife congregate at the Boteti River to find water. Lions are very active in this area.
The nearby Motswana village offers the opportunity for a cultural excursion to learn about the heritage and traditions of the local people.
Day trips to the Nxai Pan, Baine's Baobabs, the Njuca Hills and the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park can be arranged on request. Bird watching is particularly rewarding during November to April when you are likely to see equatorial and European bird species flourishing within the Makgadikgadi National Park as well as migratory species from the Okavango Delta.
The wood-and-thatch main lodge building houses the lounge, dining area, bar, reception area and curio shop. This is an ideal place to enjoy a sundowner and soak up the striking views of the riverbed. Meals are served by Leroo La Tau's friendly staff in the dining room in the main building.
Evenings can be enjoyed in the amphitheatre alongside the fire; a great time to observe the various animals that venture to the waterhole in front of the lodge. There is a plunge pool on the front lawn, great for a refreshing dip on hot afternoons. Leroo La Tau also features an entertainment room equipped with satellite TV.
