Within the northern region of the Pilanesberg National Park lies an ancient amphitheatre and its in this basin, surrounded by volcanic spires and rolling savannah grassland, that Ivory Tree Game Lodge has been beautifully crafted. The central guest areas include lounges, bar, a dining room and feature rock pool. Small intimate guest areas have been created to retain warmth and seclusion for the individual guests. Sweeping patios provide the ideal venue for delicious English breakfasts and light luncheons with the boma reserved for fire-side dinners. 60 Luxury chalets have been carefully positioned along foot-hills ensuring optimal views of either the mountainous surrounds or the central open area. Each chalet featuring an outside shower, air-conditioner, mini bar fridge, tea and coffee making facility, has been tastefully decorated in earthly tones. This theme is carried through to the spacious bathroom, and it is here that you may choose to relax in your bath beneath a panoramic window or step out for an invigorating shower. Ivory Tree boasts a new wellness experience presenting a wide variety of treatment options designed to relax mind, body and soul. The unique design and position of the treatment rooms ensure uninterrupted views of the reserve. Ivory Tree presents generous bed capacity and has been carefully designed to ensure optimal guest privacy whilst being able to create unique incentive experiences. Whilst our attention is focused around close and unrestricted encounters with Africa’s big game, incentive experiences also include bush dinners, our own version of the amazing race, and numerous additional activities. The lodge also boasts an equipped conference facility. Striving to maintain high levels of personal attention and guest comfort, game drive vehicles are custom built ensuring optimal panoramic visibility. Amongst the most experienced in the Pilanesberg, our rangers and hosts are committed to binging you close encounters with a wide variety of big game, including the big 5, cheetah and wild dog, during morning and evening game drives.

Very clean lodge, friendly staff, great amenities. The boma dinner experience under the stars was delightful. Highly recommended. We stayed with our 2 kids in a family suite. The little one was allowed on a bush bumble drive which we really enjoyed.

From arrival to departure the experience was wonderful. The staff is extremely friendly and competent. The food was great - over ate on every single meal. You literally only need to bring your clothes!! What a wonderful experience

Amazing experience, with fantastic hospitality. A very knowledgeable guide Bongani who went out of his way to make sure we saw the big 5. Elephant sightings from our room balcony was the cherry on top.

From the time we drove in, the service was superb. We had a hostess who walked us through the lodge until we settled in the restaurant. Our server Jabu, made us feel welcome. Even the chef came through to greet us. The food was delicious, they have a set menu with only three options for each course. We did not sleep over, we popped in for lunch and boy oh boy were we blown away. We will return😁

Randburg, South Africa
On arrival, check-in was very quick to allow us to immediately go on a Game Drive. The resort held a vehicle back for us, as we arrived a little late. Joas, our Game Ranger was amazing, and literally went the extra mile to give us good sightings. His knowledge of birds is exceptional!! The rooms are beautiful and very clean. Just the finer attention to detail was missing - no facecloth, and 2-pin adaptor. The tea/coffee station was well appointed - Just a pity that there was no fresh milk!! A disappointing fact that absolutely no effort was made to accomodate mine and my daughters dietary needs, even though a request was sent. The resort is very large, and therefore it becomes a little impersonal.

Good day Natasha Thank you very much for your support and this valued feedback. Glad you enjoyed most of your stay. I am also disappointed to learn that the team did not make an effort with your dietary requirements, as they are normally great with special requests. It is unacceptable and will be addressed. With the hot weather we experience, fresh milk is not actually an option, hence we use the Parmalat Milk pods. There was a country wide shortage earlier in the month, and I am not sure if this relates to your concern. Luckily all have now been resolved with the shortage. Please accept my sincerest apology for dropping the ball and for any inconveniences caused. We do however hope that you will be able to welcome you back in the near future. Wishing you all the best. Kind regards Reinhardt Saayman General Manager
