    Amazing South African adventure
    Our stay at this beautiful lodge was everything we had hoped for. Our accommodation in villas 31 was absolutely amazing, the service and food were incredible and our safari guide Sean was awesome! We had some great sightings of the animals in the park on every drive he took us on! I would 100% recommend this lodge to anyone wanting an amazing South African adventure!!

    Very good without blowing us away
    This is a lovely hotel but with a few imperfections. It is all about the safari and the safari was brilliant. In our three night stay we saw all the big five which was fantastic. The lodge itself is very good but looking a little tired in places. Our shower in particular was falling apart, although the room itself was of a high standard. Service was a little hit and miss. Very good most of the time but lacking when it really mattered. I would recommend Shepherd's Tree. Very good by South African standards and decent by European standards.

    Best Lodge by Far
    We have Safaried in various resorts in the Pilansberg for many years and this was by far the best resort hands down. Starting with check in, friendly and efficient. Rooms were amazing, spacious , clean and comfortable with great views. We have two teenage kids age 17 and 15 so WiFi was important in the rooms, it did not disappoint. The safaris were great, our Game driver Leshay was amazing. This really made the biggest impact on our time there as the game is why you are there. She was friendly and went out of her way to find the game we and the other guests were wanting to see. The food was good. Thank you Shepherds Tree Lodge we will definitely be back when we return to South Africa
