Stay at a magnificent five-star lodge in its own exclusive-use zone of Pilanesberg Game Reserve, near Johannesburg - includes full-board basis and 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.
