The Tau Foundation

South African Tau Community Project

Madikwe has the distinction of being one of the few game reserves in the world to be proclaimed purely on the grounds of being the most appropriate and sustainable land use for an area.
It further represents an extension to this philosophy in that it is run as a joint venture between the state, the private sector and local communities. The aim being, to wherever possible, involve the local community in wealth creation through tourism, skills and training and to involve the local communities directly in the benefits of wildlife tourism and the protection of the natural environment.

In line with this philosophy, Tau's owner Robert Gerard, set up the Tau Foundation to fund the community project and encouraged his overseas business visitors to contribute and make donations towards this non profit organisation.
Since it's inception The Tau Foundation, driven by Tau's director Clifford Green, has implemented a number of impressive projects in the local Supingstad community and we are proud of what the Tau Foundation has achieved so far. The social responsibility programme is delivering tangible results at the various local schools. This includes the fencing and safe keeping of the school properties and upgrading of the school sports fields and play grounds.

The renovation of school buildings and facilities, setting up of vegetable gardens, computer rooms, creating a Borehole and installing guttering and water tanks and toilets with running water at the high school.
Guests visiting the lodge are offered the opportunity to visit the Supingstad schools, the local leather factory, some traditional historical sites or they can contribute to the soup kitchen which Tau arranges at the schools.
The Tau foundation has also granted University sponsorships to students with academic potential and stimulates their performing arts by employing the high school pupils as a singer-dance group.

This Tswana Traditional group "Ditshepe tse di Tshetlana" was formed by Sacky Suping in January 2004 and includes members from the nearby Supingstad village and traditional wedding and harvest songs are incorporated in their performances.
Our guests play a critical role in supporting the Tau foundation by integrating local and international travellers and rural people to their mutual benefit.
