The Pilanesberg Game Reserve is a perennially popular safari destination for two reasons: it’s home to the Big 5, and it falls within a malaria-free zone. If this is the kind of safari you’re after – but you don’t want to skimp on luxury – Shepherd's Tree Game Lodge, with its award-winning spa, is the place for you.
The lodge is situated on an exclusive-use area within the Pilanesberg National Park and offers a number of activities ranging from quad biking to archery. Top off your treatment at the health and beauty spa with one of the lodge’s open-vehicle game drives or a guided walks through the bushveld. Back at the lodge, you can enjoy meals at the gourmet restaurant or the outdoor boma, or enjoy a cocktail in the entertainment area or rim-flow swimming pool.
The lodge has 26 standard rooms (or 13 family suites) and four executive suites. The family suites come with two en-suite master bedrooms, shared lounge and patio. The executive suites each have one en-suite master bedroom, lounge, patio and double outdoor shower.
