Our luxury South African safari lodge was designed to reflect the natural surroundings and makes use of the natural resources wherever possible.


The main Lodge has a comfortable lounge, bar and dining room which are semi open-air and overlook the waterhole. Delicious buffet breakfasts and lunches are generally served in the main building or on the lapa and dinners are served in one of the cosy boma's under the stars, or in the lapa next to the main lodge.


On the far northern border of South Africa lies a beautiful area known as the Groot Marico and it is in this spectacular setting, in the malaria free Madikwe Game Reserve, that Tau Game Lodge South Africa is situated.

The jumbled hillocks of Tshwene-Tshwene and the dramatic ridge of the Dwarsberg Mountains expose rocks of up to 2630 million years old and artifacts of the Stone and Iron Ages are still found in the Groot Marico dust.


Tau Game Lodge South Africa was built in 1995 and overlooks a vast natural waterhole, which attracts a variety of game, as does the diverse vegetation that thrives in the fertile topsoil.


Situated at an easy 4 hours driving distance from Johannesburg or a 50 minute daily scheduled flight from Johannesburg International airport, Tau "The Place of the Lion" can host and accommodate up to 60 people.



The décor and furnishings of Tau Game Lodge are Africa-inspired and the rooms are equipped with both air-conditioning and ceiling fans.


Thirty luxury thatched chalets are spread out in U-formation on either side of the lodge, offering excellent views of animals approaching the water from the opposite bank.


All Chalets have views of the game approaching the water hole. Each chalet ensures privacy with its own viewing deck, en suite bathroom, open-air shower.


The more spacious Deluxe chalets with comfortable seating areas, can accommodate parents and children wishing to share the same room. The sliding doors allow for spectacular views of the breathtaking beautiful tranquillity of the rugged surroundings of the diverse bushveld.


The Family suite and Family unit are both consisting of two bedrooms which are semi inter-leading and share a comfortable lounge.

Enter an Oasis...


On entering the Spa you are transported into another world - a calm sanctuary that reflects the soul of Africa with its natural surroundings enhancing your experience. Indulge your senses in a unique fusion of different therapies designed to replenish and soothe body, mind and soul. The spa body treatments are specifically designed to detoxify the body, revitalise the skin and calm the mind.


A range of massages are available to reduce tension and relieve the cumulative effects of everyday stress. This serene environment is aimed at assisting you to unwind in the natural and tranquil surroundings.


Africology incorporates energy therapy into treatment formulations. The active energetic essences of plants are always respected in formulations, giving nature an opportunity to work in harmony with the body's energy field.


The use of radionics to transfer energetic patterns to the Africology products is another special way of keeping the treatment products constantly alive. To embody Africa's untamed spirit and majesty, healer and skin care therapist RENCHIA DROGANIS uses indigenous ingredients in her unique body treatment products. She prefers to stay away from harsh chemicals, and is always focusing on creating a therapeutic experience on the body.



Taking care of our body and skin is a first step towards self love. Africology contributes to the well-being of Africa's people, their land, and the species that share our planet.


Our extensively trained Spa therapists are specialised in treatments ranging from authentic African treatments to specialised hydrotherapy treatments.


Guests can create their own Spa experience with our treatment options or they can choose from specially designed Spa package options and they are encouraged to stay after their treatments to enjoy some peaceful time at our secluded relaxation Sala. The Spa oasis also offers wonderful gifts to purchase.


Please note that Spa guests must bring their bathing costumes for all hydro treatments; i.e. steam and hydro bath facilities.
