An all-inclusive stay at a magnificent five-star lodge in its own exclusive-use zone of Pilanesberg Game Reserve, near Johannesburg - includes two game drives per day

  • The undoubted highlights of Shepherd’s Tree Game Lodge are the day and night game-viewing drives, which you'll take in open-sided 10-seater safari vehicles. You can expect to see almost all of South Africa’s game species, in this untouched landscape where sightings of lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and elephant are all but guaranteed.

  • Mesmerizing views across the Pilanesberg Game Reserve can be enjoyed from your guest room, a magnificent sight to behold come sunset. Each air-conditioned Standard suite is decorated in an array of neutral colors and has a beautifully-dressed bed, plus an additional outdoor shower and patio for all-day wildlife watching.

  • Freshly-cooked gourmet cuisine is served in the signature restaurant – a large and elegant space with ravishing views of the wildlife-filled Pilanesberg Game Reserve. You can opt to dine outside in the outdoor boma to be even closer to nature, if you wish. The lodge holds a coveted TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

  • For top-to-toe pampering, the Amani Spa is a cut above; think indulgent massages (deep tissue, hot stone, aromatherapy and Swedish), customized facials, detox body scrubs, rubs and polishes, and luxurious manicures and pedicures. Individual and couples treatments are available.

We like

You’ll be staying in the southwestern section of Pilanesberg Game Reserve (also known as Pilanesberg National Park), home to 7,000 animals and 360 species of birds. The relatively small size of the park, and its ecological richness, mean that your chances of seeing lions, rhinoceros, elephants, leopards and buffalo are all but guaranteed. This 220-square-mile park is located in the transition zone between the Kalahari and Lowveld. Set within the crater of an ancient volcano, the combination of climates in this transitional zone means you'll see a variety of flora and fauna here not often found living side by side.
