Tau Game Lodge invites guests to celebrate Christmas on safari

This year, Tau Game Lodge celebrated 25 years of welcoming guests through its 5-star safari doors. And in the approach to Christmas, the team is inviting travellers to spend time in the bush, enjoying their spectacular game drives and cuisine fit for a king.

A normal five-star safari day at Tau Game Lodge starts with an early wakeup call, if you’d agreed this with your ranger over a convivial dinner the previous night. You dress in your comfortable clothes and layer up as early mornings are cool.

Wash face, brush teeth, and meet at the hospitality area of the lodge for a hot coffee of your choice, a smooth latte, cappuccino, or even a steaming mug of hot chocolate. You indulge in a kitchen-baked fresh muffin.

You then get rugged up with a warm woolen blanket on the safari vehicle with canopies for comfort with a maximum of 6 guests to adhere to social distancing rules for your safety, and, you are off to see game of all sizes and descriptions, in their natural habitat. You’d even have the option of your private safari vehicle at an additional fee.

Fast-forward from a spectacular game drive to indulging in a breakfast fit for royals, served at your private table overlooking the verdant waterhole, where you see the natural pecking order of the wild, from a crocodile lazing on the embankment, hoping to trap a snack, the myriad birdlife avoiding said crocodile, elephants trumpeting their arrival, and probably a hyena and a lion giving each other the evil eye…

Now, just imagine spending Christmas in this spectacular location. No need to drive, you are within easy walking distance of your five-star home from home during the feast. Word on the safari trail is once one has spent Christmas in the bush with the folks most dear to one, one is converted for life and prior to departure and feasting in luxury Christmas safari style, one starts planning the next Christmas – in the bush.

The Tau team has adopted additional health and hygiene measures to provide guests with complete peace of mind during their visit, from arrival to settling into their rooms. Each room undergoes a meticulous deep cleaning before all guest arrivals.
