About Tau Lodge

Tau Lodge overlooks a huge natural waterhole and was built in 1995. It is privately owned. Tau Game Lodge, 'The Place of the Lion', was designed to reflect the natural surroundings and makes use of the natural resources wherever possible.

Tau Game Lodge is situated in a malaria-free area and can accommodate up to 60 people. The lodge offers an ideal South African conference venue as well as an idyllic wedding venue overlooking a natural waterhole.

The main body of the Lodge is two-levelled and has a comfortable lounge, a conference room, bar and dining room which are semi open-air and overlook the waterhole.

The Tau Lodge has 30 rustic thatched chalets spread out in U-formation on either side of the lodge, offering excellent views of animals approaching the water from the opposite bank.

Each chalet has its own wooden game viewing deck, which allows one to experience the bush in privacy and is equipped with an en-suite bathroom and open-air shower.

The décor and furnishings of Tau Game Lodge are Africa-inspired and the rooms are equipped with both air-conditioning and ceiling fans.

Each of the two corner units, on either side of (and furthest away from) the lodge, have been linked with the next-door unit by a communal outdoor lounge. These chalets can be utilised for two couples travelling together or for parents with small children sharing the room.

Buffet breakfasts and lunches are generally served in the main building or on the veranda next to the plunge pool and dinner is served in one of the cosy boma's under the stars, or in the lapa next to the main lodge.
