Valentine’s Day in the bush

Yes, I know the holidays are not over yet but I can’t help planning ahead for my favourite day of consumerism.

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 hills. Sounds pretty incredible, right?

Well, this relaxed couple could be you and your boyfriend or me and my boyfriend (or me and your boyfriend). 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.

The lodge is enclosed within the reserve, resulting in the humans being subtly fenced in, while game, including several crocodiles, roam free, including the spectacular birdlife.
