    Activities

    The Shepherd’s Tree Game Lodge in the Pilanesberg offers game drives all year round, either in the early morning or late afternoon.

    Besides the ‘Big Five’, guests have the chance to encounter the nocturnal brown hyena, cheetah, hippo, crocodile and even sable. The Pilanesberg mountains offer guests sightings of a wide diversity of animal and plant life including 360 species of birds, the ‘Big Five’ and almost every type of animal found in Southern Africa.

    The Pilanesberg National Park lies within the transition zone between the dry Kalahari and wetter Lowveld vegetation, commonly referred to as “Bushveld”. Unlike any other large national parks in South Africa, unique overlaps of mammals, birds and vegetation occur because of this transition zone.

    Springbok, brown hyena, the red eyed bulbul, and camel thorn trees usually home in arid areas are found cohabiting with moist-area-limited impala, black eyed bulbul and Cape chestnut trees. Wildlife includes lions, elephants, white and black rhinos, buffaloes, leopards, zebras, hyenas, giraffes, hippos and crocodiles.

    “Good experience”

    From arrival to check out a great and worthwhile experience. Friendly an attentive staff going out of their way to please guests. Some of the best meals we ever had with no attention to detail spared. Small operation with only 30 rooms but special attention to detail allowed us to really enjoy ourselves. Great game drives with knowledgeable rangers. Beds are good as well as bedding. Great wifi but no cell signals. Quiet location away from the buzz of normal life and the ideal break away for families and couples. Highly recommended.

    “Simply wonderful”

    We’ve stayed in the lodge with our whole family for 3 nights and we loved it! Everything was great! The beautiful room and bathroom, the great restaurant, and the staff who made us feel so welcome!
    We’ve also had great experiences with the game drives thanks to the enthusiastic rangers Ruan and Byron. We were lucky to see the pride of lions (18!!) 2 leopards, elephants, zebra’s, giraffes, rhinos, hippos and lots of other animals. We would definitely recommend Shepard’s Tree and we would love to come back! Thanks to everyone at Shepard’s Tree who made our stay a wonderful experience!

    “FANTASTIC GAME LODGE”

    We were expecting to stay at Ivory Tree Lodge but our reservation was changed the day before our arrival. However, this was not a problem as the facilities here are wonderful. The standard of the accommodation was excellent, the meals were exceptionally good and the service was first class. Probably the best game resort we have stayed in anywhere.
    The game drives were very, very good and our guide Jolandie was both knowledgeable and great fun to be with. We had some very close encounters with Rhinos and sundowners served beside a pride of lions was an unforgettable experience. Hope we may be able to visit again sometime. Thanks to all the staff and management for a great few days. Perfect resort!

    “7 Star Safari Experience”

    A truly amazing lodge – superb rooms and wonderful outside showers!
    Our Ranger was excellent – we saw all the animals ( big 5 ) and more.
    Staff are super friendly.
    Food is very high quality
    All in all a wonderful Safari experience just 2.5 hrs from Johannesburg.
    Hotel arranged an effluent taxi for us too.
    This was my second visit to Sheperd’s Tree Lodge.
    Looking forward to returning again if at all possible.
