The park, populated by up to 30,000 zebra and wildebeest closely accompanied by predators, offers guests the chance to experience the exhilaration of seeing large concentrations of game and the resultant predator interaction.The lodge comprises 12 thatched chalets, each with en-suite bathrooms. The main lodge building is surrounded by an expansive wooden deck with a plunge pool, where guests can immerse themselves in the ultimate wildlife experience.

Out of the 3 camps we visited, this one is the best and we enjoyed the most. Great view of the park from the room. Superb services and friendly staffs. Best quire every night, you can feel the passion from everyone when they sing. Excellent guide, our guide Staggate took us to both parks where we saw hippos, elephants, ostriches..., the salt pan and the baobab trees. The only unfortunate part is that our departure time was too early for us to have another morning activity. Overall we had a great time and have missed Leroo La Tau already and will love to come back. A tiny improvement to make it better: WiFi Weak signal or no signal in room nor the main house, people have to stand close to room7 to get signal.

Coming back from a 10 day trip, where Leroo La Tau was our first stop. Had a very warm welcome by the entire team. Thanks to Ollie & Bones our two guides wha have great experience and are passionate, but everyone was just very kind and helpful. Had great game drives, even if sometimes we were a bit unlucky by finding the animals. But this is part of a game and we almost had every animal for us alone as there were Rarely other jeeps around. Food was very good and we always had enough to eat. Organisation was simply perfect The spot is fine, overlooking the Boteti River that was dry at that time of the year. Rooms were clean, but as we had to close all windows during night it was really, really hot at that time of the year. If definitively recommend a stay there

We stayed for two nights in early September, with Stegga as our guide, as the first of 4 safari camps. It was a great start to a fabulous vacation. Our room overlooked a watering hole, offering game viewing between game drives (which themselves were awesome!), and the room itself was large and comfortable. The staff was welcoming, and also incredibly talented: we loved the singing and dancing that welcomed us on arrival, and also entertained us in the evenings. And food? I have my work cut out for me losing the extra pounds I gained because I couldn't say no to all that goodness. We are already talking of returning in May/June 2021, because we'd like to experience a different season.

24th July for 2 nights. Met at the airstrip by Bones who will be our guide for the next 2 nights. Short transfer to our lodge and on route saw 2 Ostriches. On arrival we were checked in near the pool side which has great views overlooking the river bed. All accommodation has beautiful views overlooking the river and watering hole. The accommodation was to an excellent standard. All house staff very friendly and the rooms looked lovely. The same day laundry service was also very good to use. After lunch we enjoyed relaxing on our decking watching the herds of Zebras and elephants coming down the banks to drink. Also on the banks you can see storks, crocodile and monitor lizard along with some local cattle. Bones is very friendly, cheerful and passionate about all the wildlife. He was also very knowledgeable and gave us very interesting facts. We again saw large herds of Zebras and elephants and got great pictures. We also saw giraffes, wildebeests, kudu and impala. All meals were excellent and great choice. My wife had a chat with the friendly chef after we had a lovely traditional starter and the kind chef gave us the recipe. One night after dinner Bones did an astronomy talk around the Bush TV ‘Camp Fire’. The stars in Botswana were fantastic and very clear. Bones used a laser pointer to point out the consolations which was very fascinating and he know all the facts about the planets and stars that could be seen. He showed us the consolation of the Scorpion, it was fantastic to see. On our trip in Botswana we used Desert & Delta throughout. Each camp we stayed at were all completely different and very unique. But they all had great service, made you feel welcome and made each and everyone feel special and the itinerary ran very similar. Thank you to Leroo la Tau staff for the lovely post card that we received on our return home.

Our family stayed here for 3 nights in July 2019. It was a wonderful experience and we fell in love with the staff and management of this lodge. It is evident that the desert and delta franchise (of which this is one of the gems) works exceptionally hard to source and train exceptional people to realize their dream of providing the BEST safari lodge experience for their guests. We can only hope other travelers add this lodge to their itinerary as it really is a special experience
