Says a recent guest: “My husband and I stayed at Tau in March for five nights for what can only be described as the experience of a lifetime. The staff, game drives, rooms, grounds, food….everything was amazing. We were travelling with our daughter, her husband and our three grandsons and our ranger, Kenneth was fantastic. He went the extra mile every game drive to make the experience memorable, he was patient with the kids and a mine of information about the animals, the game reserve and South Africa. A real highlight was our visit to Supingstad schools with Tumi and Kenneth to learn more about the schools and the work of the Tau Foundation. All round, an experience not to be missed!
