The Ivory Tree Game Lodge is located in the northeastern corner of the Pilanesberg National Park. Pilanesberg National Park is a malaria-free game reserve that is only a two-hour drive from Johannesburg.

The nature reserve is located within the crater of an extinct volcano, making it one of the most extensive examples of a very unusual geological formation. This ancient configuration was discovered alongside many other clues pointing to the presence of early man in the area.

This upmarket lodge provides three different types of accommodations to accommodate all types of guests. The lodge, including each of the suites, is beautifully decorated and inspired by African culture throughout.

The Ivory Tree Game Lodge is the place to stay if you want to explore the Pilanesberg National Park from a comfortable and stylish base.

Guests can enjoy delectable meals in the beautifully illuminated boma area while their minds, bodies, and spirits are rejuvenated. To cap off your fantastic trip to the bushveld, participate in a variety of exciting activities such as drumming, Segway tours, archery, air pistol shooting, and excursions to the numerous Stone age and Iron age sites that Pilanesberg has to offer.

The Ivory Tree Game Lodge is set in a natural amphitheatre surrounded by mountains and surrounded by riverine woodlands cut through by old elephant routes.

Activities

The Ivory Tree Game Lodge is situated inside one of the most impressive wildlife sanctuaries in South Africa. This sanctuary is home to over 300 different species of birds in addition to virtually all of the large game that can be found in Southern Africa. However, game viewing is just one of many activities that guests can participate in while visiting Ivory Tree.

Archery is one of the historical activities that guests can participate in at the Ivory Tree Game Lodge. This activity utilises modern equipment, such as modern re-curve bows. 

The tour guide will give you a safety briefing and then tell you a story about the hunters of the San people so that you can make the most of this opportunity to master the methodology that lies behind a challenging art form. 

Get in on the action and allow the vibrations of the drumming to move you from head to toe all while having a good time! Since the beginning of recorded history, drumming has been an essential part of African culture. 

This fun activity has the potential to welcome anywhere from five to one hundred and twenty participants when it is operating at its maximum capacity.

The award-winning Amani African Spa at Ivory Tree Game Lodge is the ultimate hideaway for pure self-indulgence and provides an experience that is authentically African-inspired. The spa is a recipient of multiple awards. 

Its one-of-a-kind spa product line, Africology, which is made from only the purest materials and does not contain any artificial preservatives, colouring, or scents, will provide you with a lavish feast for both your spirit and your senses. 

After indulging in one of our holistic beauty rituals that focus on your skin, body, and overall beauty, your mind, body, and spirit will feel revitalised and restored to a state of equilibrium and harmony. This sensation will last for the duration of your stay.

On a quad bike outing, you’ll get a taste of the “real thing” as you navigate your way up and over the various natural hazards as you take on the exhilarating quad path! You won’t need any prior experience to enjoy this one-hour ride thanks to the knowledgeable professionals who will guide you through the necessary instruction so that you can do so safely. 

You are going to go on a tour through the bushveld, and then you are going to be brought down to the community, where you are going to meet locals and learn about the Lodge’s participation in a community initiative.

Travellers to the Pilanesberg Game Reserve should make it a point not to miss out on the reserve’s exhilarating morning and evening game drives, which take place in open safari vehicles and lead visitors into the realm of the Big 5 game species.

To further their comprehension of African culture, attendees have the opportunity to learn Tswana and Zulu dances, watch a performance by an African marimba band, and watch a display of percussion instruments.
