The Safari Experience

Most of our guests are at Ivory Tree for the thrill of the open vehicle safari. Ivory Tree uses custom built 10 seater open game viewers which permit maximum all around visibility. The park is home to a wide variety of general game including the Big 5, in addition both species of rhino occur, namely black and white, and cheetah and wild dog. Each group of guests is assigned a personal guide who is tasked with interpreting the sights and sounds of the African bush. Your guide will spend time with you at dinners aswell and is always around to ensure that you remain comfortable during your stay with us.

Wildlife

Pilanesberg National Park falls within what is referred to as a cross over or transition zone and this is where bushveld meets the edge of the Kalahari. For this reason the diversity of wildlife is greater than most other areas as animals endemic to both regions overlap at this point.
