Firstly, we would like to announce that the famous Tau live
webcam is finally back up and running.
apologise for the delay - anyone that has visited the bush before will know
that time is somewhat elastic, and things can take a little longer, especially
electrical repairs, but it is now back up and running. If you would like to
watch our waterhole, please click here.
http://www.taugamelodge.co.za/WebCams.asp The feed is not controlled by us here
at the lodge, but there are remote viewers who control that camera and try to
capture all the best action. I can confirm that its authenticity has been verified
by myself several times, and while it runs around 45seconds behind real time,
it is indeed a live feed - keep your eyes peeled!
on in the month, I had some guests, Catherine and Alan return to Tau after
visiting around the same time in 2015. We often have people fall in love with
both the lodge and Madikwe, and return many times. This time, Catherine bought
her parents Peter and Sylvia with her to share the delights of the lodge. We
had some fantastic sightings which included cheetah hunting wildebeest, elephants
swimming and various different lions on several occasions. Peter also celebrated
his birthday with us, and the couple also celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary!
That is a long time.....! Often as a guide people get on your vehicle as
guests, but leave a few days later as friends. How lovely that I was able to
join them in their very special family celebrations. All photos on this blog
are taken by Alan - thank you for allowing us to share.
news at Tau - there has been a few changes to our guiding team - below is a
team photo that was taken on 3rd March. Guides often have lots of jobs to do,
washing cruisers, fixing the never ending stream of punctures, while also
studying to keep all of their bush knowledge up to date. Getting ten out of
eleven guides together in one place was a rarity (Ernest is the only one
missing and was not at work at the time)
Left to right: Dylan, Reggi, Jesse, Murray, Derek, Kelly, Obakeng (OB) Mike,
Mark and Ignatius (Iggy)
embrace all shapes and sizes here at Tau. If you have not met us yet, we hope you will
come and visit us soon.
you have, we look forward to you returning as friends.
Until next time.....Kelly x
