Leroo La Tau
Leroo La Tau, meaning lion spoor, is a small safari lodge in Makgadikgadi Pans National Park, on the edge of the Central Kalahari.
Leroo La Tau has 12 en suite thatched chalets on wooden platforms along a small cliff with an endless view over the Makgadikgadi plains. Under new ownership since June 2008 and in the able care of an established Botswana-listed operator, Leroo La Tau is a comfortable safari lodge with an exceptional wildlife experience and beautiful setting.
Leroo La Tau is a classic Botswana safari lodge with a large central living area on wooden deck supporting massive tree-trunk pillars and a thick head of thatch to keep the interior cool by day and warm by night (with the assistance of the cozy fire).
12 en suite chalets; private veranda; generator power by day; fuel-lamps by night; overlooking dry riverbed and waterhole; central lounge, bar and dining area; campfire and game viewing deck on the river cliff's edge; swimming pool
Game drives to the Makgadikgadi and Nxai Pans; zebra and wildebeest migrations; night drives; game viewing from the lodge overlooking the waterhole.
The dry Boteti riverbed in front of Lerro La Tau lodge has a waterhole that attracts large herds of zebra and wildebeest that in turn attract the terrifying attention of the local lions, leopards, spotted hyenas and jackals. Activities include scenic game drives to the pans and night drives where genet, caracal, jackal and other nocturnal creatures catch the light.
