Tau Lodge is located in the Madikwe Game Reserve in northwestern South Africa. My wife and I went to have the African safari experience and we were not disappointed. Daily rates include all meals and snacks, twice daily 3 hour bush trips (early morning and late afternoon), and individual rooms w/bath overlooking the water hole. You can sit on your deck between bush trips and watch as various types of animals meander into the water hole for a drink (we saw a herd of 12-15 elephants, warthog, various antelope and zebra plus birds too numerous to mention). Our ranger Megan proved very knowledgeable and entertaining who proved adept at finding numerous animals to observe. We saw 4 of the big 5 (elephant, rhino, Cape buffalo and lions), missing only a sighting of the always elusive leopard. Thanks to my wife (known affectionately in the family as "snake bait"), Megan even saw her first black mamba since she has been at Madikwe. Overall an enjoyable experience which we plan to repeat.

We went to Bakubong Lodge from JB for the weekend. Initially we went into Sun City (next door - 5km) for a look but way to plastic for our liking. Booked online at the Sun City Gates and went to the Lodge. Lodge is inside a game reserve / national park. Price included breakfast, dinner and a safari tour.
Beds comfortable, room was great, views into the bush.
Staff super friendly. Food was great.
Tour - we saw 4 of the big 5, and had an amazing time
Beautiful gardens and facility but it is overdue for a renovation and the internet was not good while there. We had to pay extra for more devices in our room and that wasn't expected. Additionally, it was very slow. No restaurants stay open late, which is also odd.
