Leroo La Tau

Majestically sited on cliffs

Leroo La Tau, translated as “footprints of the lion”, is built on cliffs over 15m high above the dry riverbed of the Boteti River. The raised vantage point ensures unsurpassed views of these desert inhabitants as they congregate below to quench their terrible thirst.

Leroo La Tau is not only about lion, zebra and wildebeest. Leroo La Tau also boasts Chobe bushbuck, leopard, brown and spotted hyena, impala, kudu, jackal, porcupine, genet and caracal, to name but a few. In addition, there is also the possibility of seeing the rare white rhinoceros. Most unique however, are the crocodiles and an amazing pod of hippo which have survived in extremely adverse conditions for many years. The hugely contrasting seasons and terrain make this area of the Makgadikgadi a unique haven for large herds and predators alike.

Leroo La Tau accommodates 24 guests in luxurious en-suite chalets, on individual raised wooden platforms. The main lounge and dining room area with its inviting wooden and thatch finishes, offers guests the opportunity to sit back and relax at the bar while listening to the wide variety of night sounds so characteristic of the African bush. Alternatively you can lounge around the pool while appreciating the herds of zebra and wildebeest which are often seen around the lodge grounds and the waterhole. Evenings can be spent alongside the fireplace which also overlooks the dry riverbed and the waterhole in front of the lodge.

The lodge offers both day and night drives. Generator power (AC 220V) is available during the day and evening. Video batteries can be re-charged. Chalets are equipped with a 220-volt AC plug for hairdryers, and torches are supplied for night use once the generator has been switched off.
