I had the pleasure of visiting Tau Game Lodge in November 2016 and was privileged to
experience a super moon on our spectacular night safari. What an unforgettable experience of a lifetime. I want to go back. We booked through a travel agent so some...More
This a terrible lodge. It is neither a 5-star nor luxury. It's is by far the worst game lodge I have visited in madikwe. The lodge is tired and dated and in a desperate need of a refurbishment. The food is terrible: no variety or...More
I have visited Tau twice, and both experiences have been excellent. The safaris are well done and lead by knowledgeable guides. The food is wonderful. The customer service really is above and beyond. The location of the bungalows on the watering hole makes Tau unique...More

We were in the same situation and decided to stay at Matla. Best decision ever. Staff is fabulous, rooms are so much better than at Tau and you still have a small water hole in front of the main building to watch animals... More
We were in the same situation and decided to stay at Matla. Best decision ever. Staff is fabulous, rooms are so much better than at Tau and you still have a small water hole in front of the main building to watch animals. The staff is from Tau so very experienced and wonderful. The game drivers are awesome. I am trying to find a way to go back.
Good day, at the moment it is not that cold yet, so a jacket will be enough it is only in May - July that you would need warmer clothes. We also provide blankets on the landrovers should you still need some extra warmth... More
Good day, at the moment it is not that cold yet, so a jacket will be enough it is only in May - July that you would need warmer clothes. We also provide blankets on the landrovers should you still need some extra warmth. Both routes can be taken, personally I prefer the N4 to Rustenburg more, but it also depends which side on Johannesburg you would be traveling from. We wish you an amazing stay!
