We had 3 nights at the Lodge and we wished we had much longer. The lodge and its staff were amazing! The game drives were beyond what I had expected. Our guide, Ruan, was extremely knowledgable and took us out early early every morning to beat the rush. We realized how lucky we were to be in our small vehicles when we saw the crowded ones full of people from some other companies. The private lodges were wonderful and the outdoor show was awesome! The small, private atmosphere of the Ivory tree makes it well worth the trip. I hope to visit again, sooner rather than later :)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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.
