Treat your family to an African experience at the Ivory Tree Game Lodge

Few venues can claim to have it all – an unspoiled location that gives you the full big five African experience; luxury accommodation that combines style and comfort;

the convenience of being less than three hours away from Johannesburg; and a family-friendly vibe that means that you can enjoy an extra-special holiday that the kids will love.

This is where Ivory Tree Game Lodge comes in, as a five-star lodge with a difference – it caters to the whole family and places an emphasis on keeping all of its guests, young and old, captivated during their stay. The location is certainly a selling point. The Pilanesberg Game Reserve is a fascinating, biodiverse environment set in the crater of an ancient volcano and merging the Kalahari with the Lowveld to create truly unique game viewing and bird watching opportunities.



Ivory Tree Game Lodge has an array of activities for some back-to-nature family bonding time, and the game drives on an open safari vehicle will have everyone on the edge of their seat as they try and spot the famous big five and the many other animal and bird species that roam in the reserve. It’s an unparalleled opportunity to cultivate a love for nature and the outdoors amongst your children as they learn about the bushveld’s many secrets and surprises from the Lodge’s knowledgeable rangers.

When not on safari, Ivory Tree Game Lodge also offers an array of activities including bush archery, which is a fun and challenging new skill to learn, and the excitement of quad biking in the terrain of the reserve. For something cultural and unique that the kids will love, join in an interactive drumming circle. And after all the excitement, anyone who needs a touch of leisure time can book a lazy afternoon pamper session at the indulgent Amani Spa.



Other activities within the Pilanesberg Reserve can also be arranged by request, so get creative about finding activities that the family can enjoy as a group. The food and dining options also deserve a mention, as both the outdoor boma dinners and Ivory Tree’s top-class restaurant serve up a delicious feast that even the pickiest eaters will love. Expect satisfied stomachs and happy smiles!

A side effect of today’s fast-paced lifestyle is fewer opportunities for families to enjoy the quality time together and create special memories. Ivory Tree Game Lodge is an enthusiastic partner in bringing people together and helping to make memories that are as special and authentic as possible. The genuine warm hospitality and incredible facilities that can be found at this unique lodge make for a bushveld experience that your family will never forget.
