            Amazing Safari ExperienceSuperb Safari ranger, Rochelle, made this a truly memorable experience. We saw so many of every type of animal and bird we were sometime just speechless with amazement. Thank you Rochelle ! Rooms are great, comfy bed and plenty of room to lounge around. Food is good and varied. Breakfasts could be better and definitely should be better organised. Staff are friendly and helpful. We tried spa treatment - really good and excellent therapist - and archery class. The teacher there is special - a great teacher, full of fun and a lovely person. Overall, an excellent lodge and perfect for couples or families. Go, you will enjoy it all !!.

            Glorious taste of safariI had a very brief one night stay, after driving myself there from Tambo Jo'burg airport - but what a great taste of safari it was, with two game drives in the evening and early morning yielding sightings of many of the animals in the park. Food was plentiful, ambience delightful, and staff warm and friendly. It was incredible value on the excellent deal I had. Only wished I could have stayed longer.

            Nice place but not worth the costThis is supposed to be a 5 Star Lodge however, the services and facilities make it a 4 star at best. Too much fuss over water. They give just 1 bottle in the room per day. Anything else, you have to pay Our kids don't drink coffee... when we asked for hot chocolate during breakfast, they charged us for that Even cappuccino or latte is charged extra...it is not included in breakfast. This, to me is ridiculous. Not what you could expect at a 5 star hotel Game drive was also pretty much OK. The rangers were good and helpful....but they can't do much if the animals aren't there! Overall, I wouldn't go here for safari...or maybe we were here in the wrong season.. But then the prices we paid were exorbitant!!

            Great stay and excellent game ranger with Evan.”

            Our first trip to ivory tree having stayed at other lodges in the area. This is a lovely lodge although slightly large in terms of capacity. My only criticism is the buffet style meals became a little congested at times. The game drives were excellent with Evan explaining everything perfectly.

            Safaris were well organised in a small jeep with a maximum of 9 people. We were with the same group and guide throughout. Our guide Cathy was very knowledgable and had a brilliant knack of finding the animals at close quarters. Accommodation was in separate huts which were fabulous. Food was plentiful and good quality. Pilanesberg is awesome and the experience is well worth the money.

            Not a 5 Star Lodge”

            Definitely NOT a 5* property. The check-in process was not the most welcoming - No explanation of their service offer, or at least a walk-through the common areas, "here is your key" type of arrival. I had requested the beds to be prepared as double instead of twin (we were 2 friends sleeping in separate rooms). Unfortunately, on arrival, I had to request that the beds were made the way they were supposed to be. The food is a buffet (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) and it's not the greatest, e.g.: we had store-bought sausage (the Oscar Mayer stuff) one day for breakfast. If you do not eat red meat, your options for protein are limited. They ran out of non-dairy milk the 2nd day we were there. Lots of staff members wandering and just chatting with each other. Not once did someone come to us to see if we wanted anything. They will bring you 1L bottles of water without glasses! They will drop the bill on your table without asking if you need anything else. Very unattentive service overall.

            Was an amazing bush holiday. Loved every split second. Our guide Zoey was excellent!!”

            The staff were brilliant!! Food was excellent !! Game drives were very well organized. An absolutely amazing bush experience!!! Loved the small added extras like the Weather forecast for the following day and the little nougat bar at our bed sides just before bedtime. It really is the small things in life that make a big difference. One suggestion though- They could have baby friendly change rooms as we had our one year old with us but there were no baby changing facilities in the female toilets. Thanks for a wonderful experience ivory tree- you will see us again soon.

            Very Disappointing”

            The most disappointing aspect of Ivory Tree was the poor quality of the food. Neither my wife, nor I are "foodies", but we appreciate quality and the basic ingredients used for the meals at Ivory Tree are simply 100 miles from 5 star. I cannot think of a comparison, as no restaurant that I know in South Africa would serve the equivalent. Another specific sign of problems was the staff's habit of requiring guests to move out of their way. Many of the guests were of advanced years and yet when a member of staff and a guest were passing through the same space, the guest would need to stand back to allow the staff to pass. Having observed this once, I made a point to look out for it and subsequently observed a frequent repetition of the same behaviour.

            Everything was fantastic about this place. First class feel. Romantic getaway for sure. ”

            Loved the quaintness of the cottages and the private feeling of them all. Loved the cleanliness and the staff were so attentative. Only negative was the meats were a little tough but ALL the food was excellent regardless. WONDERFUL buffets. And the blankets on the safaris were not real good at keeping the wind out. Oh well. TOTALLY would recommend this place. You will not be dissapointed.
