About Tau Roara Lodge

Tau Roara Lodge is only a few hours' drive from Johannesburg, between the maize fields of the North West Province in Lichtenburg. Come and enjoy the tranquility of nature, the magnificence of the lions and the hospitality of the countryside, away from the rush of life.

The lodge has three luxurious self-catering chalets. One chalet has two beds and the other two chalets have five beds in each. You will have amazing views of the lions which are only 10 m away from the chalets. There is a communal kitchen and a lapa area with an open fire. It is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the night and let the roar of the lions fill the silence. We also have 16 campsites with electricity. These sites have use of clean and neat ablution facilities with warm water.

You can touch and hold the lion cubs at the lodge and watch the lions while they are feeding. There is other wildlife on the farm such as crocodiles and wild dogs. Our facilities include a clear swimming pool for dips on the hot days, a pool table, swings for the children, a colour TV with local channels, a fan and a heater are in each chalet.

Felt at home amongst the lions with our 'tour guide/immediate friend" Gerhard. He showed us around the camp introducing us to all of his 125 lions, gave us the chance to feed his 2 week old cub and made us feel at home. We will definitely be back!!

Ek wil net dankie se vir die vriendelike ontvangs wat ons gehad het, hoewel dit regtig baie laat was. Ons het die naweek vreeslik geniet en sal dit beslis weer doen, en aan enige iemand aanbeveel. Die Konings van die Bos is in fantastiese en goed versorgde toestand, baie gelukkig en tevrede. Fasiliteite is goed ingerig en eerste klas. 'n Fantastiese plekkie om net die natuur en ons God gegewe geskenk te kan geniet. Mag jul net "gebless" word.
