Activities

The main activity at the Ivory Tree Game Lodge is the thrilling open vehicle safaris which provide guests with a genuinely exciting and rare bushveld experience.

Unlike most national park game drives, the game drives available at the Ivory Tree Game Lodge are conducted in custom-built ten seater vehicles. Guests are allocated a dedicated ranger for the duration of their stay, ensuring that they enjoy a full game viewing opportunity, the emphasis being on big game. The game drives in open vehicles at the Pilanesberg National Park in South Africa provide an unforgettable experience. The Ivory Tree Game Lodges utilizes custom-built ten seater open game viewers which permit maximum all-around visibility.

Pilanesberg National Park falls within a crossover or transition zone, and this is where bushveld meets the edge of the Kalahari. For this reason, the diversity of wildlife is greater than most other areas as animals endemic to both regions overlap at this point.

“A little piece of heaven”

We spent Christmas at this little piece on heaven in the Pilanesberg. Everything we love about Africa was encapsulated at Ivory Tree Lodge. Lovely accommodation, amazing staff, delicious food. Christmas Eve dinner was spectacular. Marnu, our ranger, was fabulous and certainly ticked all the boxes during our game drives. Africa was truly showing off 🙂 We loved our stay at Ivory Tree and we will be back.

“Unforgettable experience”

What an amazing unforgettable experience from the minute we arrive. The Management and staff were incredible, friendly and always there to serve you. The food just to die for and don’t even think to diet!! Wonderful rooms and amenities. The game drives with our guide Morné were always exciting and informative. He went out of his way to show us all the animals and the highlight was when he tracked down the 3 brother cheetahs for us. Thank you for the best 2 days – we hope to visit again.

“Safari holiday”

We spent an amazing 2 nights here. The lodge is lovely and felt very African to me. Our room or ‘hut’ was gorgeous. The bathroom was huge and the outside shower was great fun to use. Sleeping under the mosquito net was also a fun touch. Instead of chocolate the staff left nougat on our pillow, yum! The safaris were excellent, we even got a cocktail stop which I didn’t expect but was a nice touch. Bonnie was our guide and she was super knowledgeable and fun. We saw lots of animals on each of our safaris. The lodge had this wonderful aura of innocence which is so refreshing for a North American! I loved every single second.

“Safari at its best”

What a place. I will be back. The staff, the food, the premises, the rooms are just perfect. We had 6 game drives and saw the Big 5 got caught in a stampede (a bit scary) and got chased away from our special evening meal in the bush by a lion (very scary) but what an experience. All the rangers are fantastic with a big thank you to Frikkie for 3 days of entertainment and laughter. You have to go and meet Simon the big bull elephant and his friends who come to the pool at the lodge whilst you are sunbathing. I could go on all day. Just Fantastic thank you so much.
