Ivory Tree”

We had a marvelous three day stay at Ivory Lodge. It was excellent value for money - with game drives every morning and evening. Our guide was Werner - he was so informative, funny and respectful of the animals. He made our trip - thank you Werner! We saw lions, hippos, elephants, zebras, rhinos, giraffes, impala, hyena, warthogs, crocodiles and many more. Werner's passion for animals (particularly wild dogs) is very obvious and he shares this with you. The scenery was beautiful, with epic sunrises and sunsets. The lodge is nicely laid out. We were upgraded and had a large villa with our own pool. This meant we had a lot of privacy and space. It was perfect. The food is generally very good and they try to offer some of the local delicacies including Warthog! Unlike the Kudu (which is very tasty) the Warthog was a little chewy! The staff were all very helpful. Sun City is not too far away and we went to play golf there one day - as there is not too much to do between game drives.

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.

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.
