Safari at Tau Game Lodge

Each day will be spent enjoying incredible game viewing in open land rovers, lead by experienced rangers and trackers.

Game Drives are conducted in the early morning before breakfast and again in the late afternoon into the evening, assisted with the powerful spotlights allowing you to see the night predators hunting.

Bush walks are also offered on request, and well worth the experience of seeing the bush from the ground and being introduced to the flora and fauna of the area.
