Mama Tau Tented Camp is open!
It’s a real pleasure to come back to you, with some fresh news from Mama Tau.
For all newcomers who did not receive our previous newsletters, please allow me to introduce myself.
My name is Sebaka.
I was the first white cub born in Mama Tau, and I was rescued by the staff when rejected by my mother – this happens often when lionesses get “mother for the first time”. After a few weeks playing and drinking milk, I was asked to work…
So I am now in charge of the quarterly newsletter.
Time flies in the bush, and I grew up a lot, getting – almost – as big and strong as my father. Still, I have to work on my roaring, and practice my hunting skills on my teddy bear… but I am looking forward to join all my cousins in the bush, and play with them. Since the opening of the breeding project in last January, almost all lionesses have given birth to cubs, and the camp is now full of young cubs playing around, carefully watched by their mother…
But let’s get back to work, as I do have important news !
Mama Tau team has been working pretty hard these last months, but is proud to announce the opening of its brand new Tented Camp ! Four large tents are now ready to welcome you & your friends or family, nestled under age-old trees, at a stone’s throw from the white lions !
I have been told that each tent features 1 double & 2 single beds, 1 bathroom, 1 kitchen, and 1 private terrace and braai ! All this in front of a nice swimming pool & a small dam, where you should have the chance to look at antelopes and zebras drinking at night.
All tents are equipped for self catering, which means that you’ll have the possibility to prepare a nice barbecue at night ; but make sure to listen carefully at dusk, as you should hear my family roaring when enjoying sunset on your terrace…

Another good news was the arrival of the rain, after several weeks of very hot weather ; we luckily received plenty of water, and the bush is again full of life ! As a result, the animals do have plenty of grass to eat, water to drink, and nice green trees providing some shadow in the sun. Personnally, I am not too much into baths & showers, but I must say that all this water made me all clean and neat ; my friends of Mama Tau even teased me saying that this way I finally look like a white lion…
It seems that all animals feel quite happy, as the impalas, zebras, and wildebeest had also some babies… More than ever, wildlife, blissful nature, and the majestic lions are awaiting your visit ! Mama Tau has now become a major touristic venue for day visitors in Waterberg, and has welcome more than 2.500 visitors since its opening in last January, from overseas tourists to local school groups !
Stay tuned for further news, and in the meantime come and visit me at Mama Tau !
