Our family had the great joy of spending parts of four days here in this beautiful setting. We had a three room unit, which was absolutely beautiful. We particularly enjoyed the outside shower, which we had to use for the novelty, even though it was wintertime! We had lovely vistas, and we kept the curtains open all night so that... More

Apparently the only... More

This place is amazing!!! The service was impeccable, food fantastic, and the animals beautiful. I want to live there!!! Seeing the animals in their natural habitat was unreal. I love this place. Jacques our game driver was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic that it was contagious.

Luxurious lodge in a beautiful location with friendly staff providing amazing service. Complemented by sightings of lion and leopard amongst all the usual animals made this a memorable week end. Great food makes this a highly recommended destination.

We had a amazing time at Pilanesberg! Shepherd's Tree Lodge provided everything we desired, and then some. The staff was fantastic. They were friendly, warm, and made us feel at home. Our guide was Mauritz, and not only did he track and find each of the big five, but his knowledge of the animals was outstanding. Every time he found... More

To be honest I don't think you can go wrong with any of the guides but... More
