"We had an absolute lovely experience at the Shephards Tree Lodge this past weekend. We were welcomed by friendly staff (Patricia and PK) and walked into a truly exceptional bush experience. We traveled with my 5 year old son, and they were very accommodating. The rooms were beautiful and very clean. The dining room staff were great (Oupa and the rest) and the food was lovely. I have never ate so much in my life! The pool area is breathtakingly beautiful and the water crystal clear. We spent quite a bit off time lounging away. We went on the Bumble ride and were surprised with the amount of animals we saw. Lions, hippos, Elephants, Crocodiles, Buck, Zebras etc. Our Ranger Jarrod was awesome and tough us a lot about animals, the bush etc. I went on two more game drives and the sightings were amazing. We were short only a buffalo to complete the big five, but having seen a Leopard and about 16 Lions made up for that. I would love to return to Shephards Tree. Sooner rather than later:)"

"I really enjoyed the adventure of the game, everything was perfectly organized and safe at the same time. I really liked the knowledge and experience of young youth who were responsible of our enjoyment. The team is very friendly and well trained The resort itself was luxury especially the bathroom, i like the idea of taking the shower in an open shower to the wood itself thanks again, i came back with a lot of nice pictures, especially when we were gaming the lions and leopard, they were 2m distance from our car It was a great experience"

"2 days and 2 nights = 1 dream. Our stay was absolutely amazing. The lodge was fantastic. The staff is very friendly and made us feel to be part of the family. Great food, great rooms - especially the outdoor shower - and thanks to the ladies for the dancing evening ;-) The game drives were absolutely amazing. Apart from all the animals and the beautiful landscape it was our guide Mauritz who made the drives unforgettable. His passion and knowledge of the animals and the park is outstanding. He knows where to find the animals and showed us lovely places. We learned a lot about the animals and South Africa. He took care of our group and we had lots of fun. I will highly recommend him. In total it’s an absolutely wonderful and amazing place to stay and I will never forget. Thanks a lot for everything !!!"

"My sister and I had the absolute pleasure of staying here in August. Sandra and her staff (particularly Refilwe & Marcia, Reginald, Amos, Jabu & Joseph) are wonderful! It is a "boutique" lodge where you are taken care of the minute you arrive. Far more preferable to large, impersonal lodges that are very "touristy". The rooms are set into the surroundings and spaced out along a pathway. This ensures stunning scenery, privacy, peace and quiet. The food is scrumptious and there are several settings a day! Starting with the early continental breakfast (if you are taking the morning safari), cooked breakfast on return, 3 course lunch, high tea and dinner. Would definitely recommend Shepherd's Tree to all family and friends!"

"My wife and i stayed here for about 3 nights & 4 days. We visited during August 16-19 2014.The game drives were really nice. It was a bit cold early in the morning, but by mid-day the weather was perfect. Our game driver Mike Tickle was very knowledgeable about the park. You can tell that he has a passion and love for the animals. Even though we were only there for a short time, he made sure that we saw as much of the park as possible. We will never forget his good attitude and his friendly demeanor. All of the staff was courteous and amazing! We had a really good time and we would visit again in the future if possible. This is a once in a lifetime trip!"

"Couldn't recommend this lodge more highly.....the game drives were well guided and organized....the level of service was spectacular including refreshing towels as we exited the game drive vehicles. The "extra 5" noted above refers to the extra weight we were carrying after the beautifully presented and delicious food. We booked a standard room (#2) and it was more than adequate - although it could have used a couple of cosmetic touch ups to be "perfect", it was beautiful, with excellent linens and the outdoor shower was a treat. We will certainly be returning."

- Michelle

"The lodge and staff were great. The rooms were wonderful, the outdoor but private shower was an experience. The food was delicious. Safari Guide JP was excellent, ensured that we saw all the animals we could see. He was informative and dedicated to his craft. We would not had a wonderful experience without him. All hotel staff provided great service, from the front desk manager to the wait staff."

- Rachelle

"All the staff at Shepherd's Tree worked hard to ensure our stay was wonderful. The waiting and reception staff were all excellent. Our game ranger (Greg) was superb. We saw 4 of the Big 5 (including Lions on a kill), and a Cheetah on a kill. Greg suggested to us that we had been 'lucky' - to some extent this was true, but I also have no doubt that he worked very hard, and in a team with the other rangers to ensure that we saw as much game as possible. He was wonderfully knowledgeable and a credit to the Lodge. The rooms are all beautiful (huge beds!). The outside showers may not to be everyone's liking (but are piping hot even at 5am in the morning!). Some of the fixtures and fittings in the room are looking a little tired (e.g. loo roll holder falling off the wall), but these are minor complaints about what was otherwise an excellent stay. The food similarly is superb; the menu always varied, and delicious. Drinks were reasonably priced for a 5-star resort."

- Ben

"Our 3rd return to this fantastic lodge was rewarded by the whole staff going absolutely out of their way to make us feel at home! Reginald opened our car door, immediately recognized us from a previous visit. He promptly proceeded to welcome me and my wife with broad smile and a warm hug! Together the staff planned a fantastic private dinner under the stars for us! Every interaction with each staff member was a pleasant, friendly and helpful experience. Apart from this being an amazing lodge, in a stunning setting the friendly hosting skills of all the staff made this a visit we will never forget! We will surely look for the earliest opportunity for a return visit! Thank you Shepherds Tree!"

"We had the most amazing experience at Shepards Tree lodge. With my girlfriends 31 birthday the amazing staff went all out with the whole Team singing her a birthday song and presenting us with a beautiful cake at dinner and to Top it off left her with beautiful flowers on her bed when we arrived 'it was all in all just a amazing Experience for us both . And a big thank you to all the friendly and so very helpful staff . All in all you guys rate 10/10 in my books and the rooms were fabulous too, not to mention the Supurb game drivers . To Management 'you guys have obviously ticked all the boxes correctly And we all know that staff can make or break your holiday experience in a second ' nedless to say no matter what my requests were your friendly staff were always there to help . Thanks again for a fab weekend at Shepards tree lodge . From Jana and Jason Policar"
