Like many other reviewers, Leroo La Tau was our last stop on our Botswana safari tour. We were there for two nights (and wished it was longer).
LOCATION: The lodge is located on an elevated position above the river with spectacular views of the surrounding area.
SERVICE: The level of service during our stay was superb. Every single staff member greeted us with a hello and smile making us feel most welcome. A special mention must be made regarding Juan and Priscilla. Not only was the service they provided professional and knowledgable, but it was delivered in a very personable manner that truly made you feel like a guest at their "home".
ROOMS: There are only a small number of lodges. Each one is very nicely appointed balancing the modern amenities we all seek while on holiday while still maintaining a unique African ambiance. Each one overlooks the river and are spaced out appropriately to provide privacy. At night you can hear the hippos wandering around.
DINING: The food selection and service was excellent. The food tasted great and served in a fantastic atmosphere. It was my wife's birthday while we were there and they baked a special birthday cake for her.
SAFARI: There is an abundance of game viewing in the area. You are transported by boat to where the safari vehicles are kept where you then drive around the riverbank and surrounding area.
Overall this is an excellent lodge that provides a very high standard of service and amenities. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to friends or family.
Please see some of my photos as well as they can provide some additional insight into Leroo La Tau.
