Whilst Tau remains a popular romantic destination, it also offers ideal family-friendly packages and the delicious food always proves popular with guests.

Children aged three to five-years old automatically become members of the Tau Cubz Club, which includes a short game drive after breakfast for the kids, to give parents the chance to make the most of the comprehensive game drives for adults. After the children’s game drive, they are entertained with treasure hunts and arts and crafts activities, whilst being provided with spacious all-purpose backpacks filled with activity books, animal sticker checklists, a deputy ranger sticker badge as well as a Tau T-shirt.

Christmas and New Year are special occasions at Tau. Guests are spoiled with a festive traditional home-cooked Christmas feast for lunch and each receives a small memento of the experience, while Old Year’s Eve is as lively an event at Tau as it would be in any bustling metropolis! A DJ and dancing follow a tasty meal and delectable desserts, as old and new friends take in the New Year together.

The thirty luxury chalets at Tau Game Lodge each offer a private viewing deck, ensuite bathroom and open-air shower. Accommodation includes 6 deluxe chalets, a family unit and a family suite (both made up of two chalets joined by an inter-leading lounge).

Malaria-free Big 5 Madikwe Game Reserve boasts year-round game viewing and a bird population of over 250 different species. Madikwe is one of the few reserves where one can view a wide variety of fauna, from breeding herds of Elephant to the endangered Wild Dog and Cheetah.

Says a recent visitor: “I’ve loved the ambiance, the food, the excellent service, the game drives by Kelly, the animals drinking outside my room deck, the alligator sleeping close to my armchair, the monkeys trying to steal my food… I’ll keep this trip in my heart.”

Tau’s proactive hospitality initiatives include constant upgrades and improvements as well as eco-tourism, such as the Rhinose project to preserve its animal kingdom and the environment for generations to come, not to mention a live webcam, accessible at http://www.taugamelodge.co.za/WebCams.asp – follow the easy steps to log onto the Wild Earth server.
