Amazing Game Lodge
We stayed here based previous reviews, Shepherd's Tree Game Lodge is more expensive than many other lodges, but for us this was a once in a lifetime trip, so we decided to go the extra mile. We didn't regret that decision at all. From arrival to departure, all the staff were totally committed to ensuring we had a perfect stay. The all-inclusive food was of superb quality, although three wonderful courses for breakfast, dinner and supper can lead to a little overeating!. The bedroom was of very high quality, with a massive, very comfortable bed. We had room 1 which is nearest the lodge itself, but still feels totally isolated. Some of the lodges are further away, but a buggy is always available if you don't want to walk. The game drives were great, we were fortunate there were only 4 of us in our vehicle, so we were able to take full advantage of the ranger's knowledge. We only went on two drives (evening and morning), but still saw a wide variety of wildlife. As 'newbies' to game drives, we didn't know what to expect. We went at the end of November, when the temperature was in the low 30s (Celcius) during the day. The advice was to bring warm clothing, which seemed a little strange, but we hadn't appreciated the cooling effect of being driven at 30 to 40 kph in a totally open vehicle. Early morning, and late evening, some additional layers were required. We didn't bring any 'special' clothes or repellent, neither were needed.

Exceeded our expectation!
Shepherd's Tree Game Lodge exceeded all our expectations! We truly loved the experience and my children (10 & 9) have asked when we are next going back. The lodge itself is beautifully appointed, the décor refined and very appealing. The staff are attentive and friendly and the standout for us was the excellent cuisine. Chef Hennie, a true master of his craft, impressed us daily with the delights coming from the kitchen. The children menu was spot on encompassing all the things that kids love. The game drives were excellent - although mornings are very cold in winter - but it was exciting and we had excellent viewing, most notably a wonderful leopard sighting. We look forward to planning our next trip to Shepherd's Tree.
