We stayed two nights to celebrate my birthday and it was a great experience. Special thank you to the staff who organised a cake and performed a traditional song and dance for me. Our host Grant Botha was excellent! There was a surprise bush braai for the guests one night. We will certainly go back to Tau Lodge.
