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 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.
