About Tau Game Lodge

Tau Game Lodge is a family-friendly, five-star safari lodge in the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve, one of South Africa’s top private game reserves and one of the closest Big 5 game reserves near Johannesburg. The lodge is enclosed, resulting in guests being subtly fenced in, while wildlife including the Big 5, wild dogs, and cheetahs roam free in the reserve.

The eco-friendly lodge opened its doors in 1995 and offers 30 rooms, ranging from standard and luxury rooms to family suites, as well as a conference and events centre, and a spa. I spent two nights there in 2015 and 2 nights there in 2022 and have very special memories of my stay.  Celebrities that have been hosted at the lodge include Mark Shuttleworth, Kate Hudson and Adam Sandler.

A normal safari day at Tau Game Lodge starts with an early morning wakeup call. Dress in comfortable clothes and layers as the mornings are cool. Then meet your ranger at the hospitality area of the lodge for a hot drink of your choice and a freshly-baked muffin.

You then snuggle up with a woollen blanket on the safari vehicle, complete with canopies for comfort. A maximum of 6 guests are accommodated on the vehicle in order to adhere to social distancing rules. You even have the option of a private safari vehicle at an additional fee. Then set off to see exciting wildlife of all sizes and descriptions, in their natural habitat.

The early morning safaris are mesmerising, offering magical light for photography, with a pitstop for coffee and delicious buttermilk rusks overlooking the verdant bush, whilst game rangers keep a vigilant watch for predators. After a spectacular game drive, you are invited to indulge in a breakfast fit for royals, served at your private table overlooking the waterhole. Afternoon game drives include dazzling African sunsets with decadent sundowners before returning to the lodge for a convivial dinner.

Game viewing is not limited to safari drives. All 30 rooms, the lodge hospitality decks as well as the two pools, offer views of the large waterhole, where a game extravaganza of the wildest and most entertaining order plays out naturally 24/7 - crocodiles lazing on the embankment hoping to trap a meal, elephants trumpeting their arrival, and perhaps a hyena and a lion giving each other the evil eye. The highly addictive Tau live webcam will keep you mesmerized too.

Dinner is hosted in the boma, at the restaurant, or on the dining deck, depending on the weather, and usually with a pleasant surprise element for guests. The culinary team’s delicious and healthy meals are served a-la carte and tables are spaced apart at appropriate distances.

The Tau Spa Oasis is another luxe experience, offering a bird’s-eye view of the surrounding bush and spectacular birdlife.

The Tau team has adopted additional health and hygiene measures to provide guests with complete peace of mind during their visit, from arrival to settling into their rooms. Each room undergoes meticulous deep cleaning before guests arrive. They look forward to welcoming you.
