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 lions, leopards, buffalo, rhinos and elephants are guaranteed.

  • Mesmerising 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 colours 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), customised facials, detox body scrubs, rubs and polishes, and luxurious manicures and pedicures. Individual and couples treatments are available.
