Just 2 hours from Johannesburg and Pretoria, lies a slice of heaven in the heart of the bush. Shepherd’s Tree Game Lodge is a phenomenal hideaway that is tucked quietly away in its own exclusive-use zone in the South-West of the Pilanesberg Game Reserve.

Shepherd’s Tree Game Lodge brings the best of the Pilanesberg to life, with bright sunsets setting the horizon alight, as the silhouettes of the mighty Big 5 pass by in the lush green and gold grass.
