    ABOUT PILANESBERG NATIONAL PARK

     

    The crater of a long extinct volcano is the setting of Ivory Tree Game Lodge in Pilanesberg Game Reserve – a fascinating alkaline complex produced by volcanic eruptions some 1300 million years ago. Pilanesberg Game Reserve is one of the largest volcanic complexes of its kind in the world. Its rare rock types and structure make it a unique geological feature.The area is fringed by three concentric ridges or rings of hills – the formation rises from the surrounding plains like a bubble. The structure of the park is termed the “Pilanesberg Game Reserve Alkaline Ring Complex”. Ancient, even by geological time scales, this extinct volcano is the most perfect example of an alkaline ring complex. 

    Unlike any other large park, unique overlaps of mammals, birds and vegetation occur because of this transition zone. Springbok, brown hyena, the red eyed bulbul, and camel thorn trees usually found in arid areas are found cohabitation with moist-area-limited impala, black eyed bulbul and Cape chestnut trees.

    My ultimate favorite This place is near to my heart. We visit more than twice a year and we are satisfied every time we go. From the location to the meals, game drives and the socializing with game rangers. It is the best place. You build up a good relationship with game rangers even if you are there for only 2 days. The staff is always friendly and the managers always ready to assist. I had most of my favorite memories at Ivory tree ! Be sure to visit (And see the amazing baths!!!)

    9 Months Later Still in Awe We stayed here for 2 nights with a mid size group and cannot say enough positive things about our stay. As a very frequent traveler, this stood out for many reasons as a trip of a lifetime. From the time we got there everyone was extremely and genuinely friendly. Food was simple and fresh, well prepared and served with a smile. Great places to unwind after the drives. Most memorable was our guide Desmond, knowledgeable, friendly and caring. We got to see 4 of the Big 5. But even without the sightings the beauty of the land was worth the stay. I almost talked myself from going due to a busy schedule. My wife insisted I join my colleagues and I was lucky I lost the argument!! This was something I will never forget. My sincere thanks top ALL at the Lodge. I will return.
