Our stay at Tau was perfect. We arrived by plane on a rough landing strip and the 50 minute transfer by jeep with our ranger was an additional game drive.
The staff were friendly and could not have been more helpful. The rooms were excellent and the individual viewing decks meant we spent almost all our time looking at animals and birds. The time between the morning and evening drives was easily filled but nevertheless I had a massage one day, sheer bliss!
The food was very varied and plentiful and of a high standard and the sundowners and breakfasts out in the bush were very welcome.
We have stayed at other reserves and this was definitely the most relaxing and amazing of them. The lions even came to the waterhole on our final morning to say goodbye!
We could not fault Tau and Madikwe and did not want to leave.
