Situated in the northern region of the Pilanesberg National Park, next to the Bakgatla Gate, lies Ivory Tree Lodge.
Pilanesberg is an attractive 50,000 hectare malaria-free area which is centred around an extinct volcano crater. Today, the Park is home to over 7,000 animals including the Big 5, giraffe, hippo, zebra, jackal, hyena and many antelope, and there are also over 350 bird species.
Guests are guided through the magnificent Park in purpose-built safari vehicles. Each safari vehicle is able to carry a maximum of 10 guests thus ensuring personal attention whilst out on game drives.
