Ivory Tree Game Lodge


Ivory Tree Game Lodge lies in a natural amphitheatre, surrounded by mountains. This lodge offers a true bush lodge experience. A large swimming pool, outdoor dining and spectacular big five game viewing make this the perfect holiday destination.

Inside, the warm and earthy tones make you feel at home in the bush. Each suite has luxurious amenities, a patio and an outdoor shower. The attention to detail really sets this lodge apart.

The executive suites offer the added luxury of a lounge area and a private plunge pool. Ivory Tree Game Lodge is in one of South Africa’s largest wildlife sanctuaries. It is home to almost all of Southern Africa’s big game.

Enjoy an African safari on our 10-seat game drive vehicle with your dedicated game ranger.  Relax and refresh in the swimming pool with a view of the Pilanesberg mountains, or unwind in the intimate Jacuzzi.
