Ever seen an African wild dog and her young basking in the morning sun, or a lioness and her cubs lazily rolling in the grass, after feasting the previous night?
Only at Tau Game Lodge in the magnificent Madikwe Reserve, where unpretentious five-star safari luxuries await. Imagine a safari game drive with sightings of the myriad game, including the Big Five, followed by sundowners in the bush before a magical dinner, listening to lion roar and elephants trumpet…could it get more romantic and indulgent to celebrate romance? The music of the night at this established lodge bordering Botswana is unsurpassed.
It is believed the first Valentine’s Day in the year 496 originated from a Roman festival called Lupercalia, which was officially the start of their spring in mid-February. Since then, there have been many adaptations, from sending anonymous missives to delivering gifts.
Whatever the custom has evolved into, in the end, it resulted in a celebration of love and hope that love is reciprocated and springs eternal.
Picture a romantic breakfast for two overlooking a bush safari waterhole, where game and birdlife abound. This could be followed by a relaxing spa treatment for two, with vistas of the verdant bush.
Now visualize a happy, relaxed couple, lazing at a pool, overlooking that waterhole, or just reclining on their private room deck with vistas of the waterhole, followed by a leisurely lunch, again overlooking that waterhole and the Tshwene Tshwene hills of the Groot (Great) Marico beyond.
