October 21-24, 2013 stay. Thank you to all the staff at Ivory Tree Lodge for the best vacation one could ever dream of. Everything was perfect, the staff, the 'hut' , food, entertainment, safaris, I could go on and on. The early morning safaris were unbelievable! Scott our very knowledgeable Ranger drove us to see so much, everything from elephants, lions, leopard, impalas.......... We were even lucky enough to witness a cheetah take down an impala (not even 30 yards from our vehicle...I have video proof of the kill). The sunrises and sunsets were beautiful. There isn't a thing I would change.
The food was excellent, the wine unbelievable, everything perfect! I tell people that this vacation will be hard to surpass if that could ever be possible. If there is one place to stop in for a few days stay, Ivory Tree Lodge is the place. A true gem in the wilds of South Africa
- 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.
