Le Roo la Tau offers visitors to the Makgadikgadi National Park an absolute African experience. Spacious, comfortable chalets, all with en-suite bathrooms and ceiling fans, overlook the dry riverbed of the Botetsi River and offer panoramic views of the African landscape in a luxurious setting. Raised on wooden platforms, the chalets are a true retreat, providing guests with a quiet sanctuary with only the sounds and sights of African wildlife to break their reverie. Efficient and caring staff pride themselves on providing traditional African hospitality and friendly service, adding personal touches wherever they can to enhance their visitor’s bush experience.
Rangers and guides share their passion for nature, finding exciting ways to track and reveal wildlife to guests. Game drives happen in the mornings and evenings, assuring guests of good game-spotting. The green season brings a landscape that is teaming with wildlife – the wildebeest and zebra migration offering an exhilarating experience of nature at its best. The wet season also heralds the arrival of rich birdlife. The dry season offers a slightly different experience, instead of teaming herds, game congregate around the limited water supply. African game is prolific during this mini-migration – zebra, elephant and wildebeest traverse the sandy plains and guests fall asleep to the sound of hippos wallowing in the Botetsi river. Night-time game-drives with spotlights offer guests a rare chance to experience the nocturnal habits of wildlife.
During the day, the swimming pool helps guests to unwind and enjoy the African sunlight. If water levels allow, guests can partake in boating activities on the Botetsi River. For travellers who like to learn about local culture, a trip to the Khumaga Village can be arranged. A feast awaits guests at meal times and dining is an elegant affair, normally preceded, in true African style, by sundowners al fresco. Relaxation after dinner is often around the fire pit, giving guests a chance to catch up on news and sightings.
A true oasis of luxury and heartfelt hospitality in the Kalahari Desert, the intimate and warm Le Roo la Tau has been called “magnificent and magical…a gem” by previous guests.
