rt-image

A new dawn, a new wonder, a new adventure.

Shepherd’s Tree Game Lodge is a lodge concession awarded by the North West Parks and Tourism Board within the existing Pilanesberg Game Reserve. The entire lodge lies in an exclusive use zone in the south-western portion of the 57,250ha, "Big 5" and malaria free Reserve.

Guests will enjoy both private traversing and access to all the Reserve’s public roads. The lodge offers commanding views of the distant bushveld amphitheatre and is superbly positioned adjacent to the Wilderness Area, thus offering the opportunity of walking trails in this untouched environment.

Lodge Overview

Shepherd’s Tree Game Lodge will offer you far more than just memorable vacations. It is destined to become one of the premier lodges in Southern Africa. The lodge provides tremendous wildlife experiences in a vast wilderness, and yet still offers easy access (only 18km or 15mins by road) to the world’s most unique resort, the internationally acclaimed Sun City.
