Picture a romantic breakfast for two overlooking a verdant waterhole, where game and birdlife abound. This could be followed by a relaxing spa treatment for two, with vistas of the bush. 

Now visualize a happy, relaxed couple, lazing at an infinity pool, while watching elephants drink, or just reclining on their private room deck with vistas of the bush and waterhole, followed by a leisurely lunch, again overlooking that waterhole and the Tshwene Tshwene hills of the Groot (Great) Marico beyond.

This is Tau Game Lodge in the magnificent Madikwe Reserve, where unpretentious five-star safari luxuries await. Imagine a safari game drive with sightings of the myriad game, including the Big Five, followed by sundowners in the bush before a magical dinner, listening to a lion’s roar and elephants trumpet…could it get more romantic and indulgent to celebrate romance?

The music of the night at this established lodge bordering Botswana is unsurpassed.

Ever seen an African wild dog and her young playing in the morning sun, or a lioness and her cubs lazily rolling in the grass, after feasting the previous night?

The lodge is enclosed within the reserve, resulting in the humans being subtly fenced in, while game, including several crocodiles, roam free, including the spectacular birdlife. No danger of any Valentine being compromised…
