The Safari Experience
Most of our guests are at Ivory Tree for the thrill of the open vehicle safari. Ivory Tree uses custom built 10 seater open game viewers which permit maximum all around visibility. The park is home to a wide variety of general game including the Big 5, in addition both species of rhino occur, namely black and white, and cheetah and wild dog.
Each group of guests is assigned a personal guide who is tasked with interpreting the sights and sounds of the African bush. Your guide will spend time with you at dinners as well and is always around to ensure that you remain comfortable during your stay with us.

Conferences | Meetings
Ivory Tree has included a dedicated conference room among its facilities, please enquire into the availability of conference room equipment before concluding your conference planning. Alongside is a thumbnail of a proposed seating layout. This specific plan indicates a class room type layout and makes provision for 70 delegates. In our opinion, however, 80 delegates seated in this configuration would be the maximum possible.
If the idea of another routine game lodge experience raises little more than a sigh, gets you running to the doctor for a sick note, meeting with the reserve bank for assistance with payment, and where some lazy lodge manager tells you what you can't do, then this is just the answer for you.
Tailor-made Conservation Conferences and Incentives
During conferences and Incentives at our lodges we are frequently approached by groups enquiring about participation in conservation exercises. This idea prompted us to integrate conservation with the guest experience. In short we are now able to involve guests in the process of routine data gathering to determine condition and genetic mapping amongst other things.
Conference requirements frequently conflict with the routine private game lodge programme, it has therefore become necessary for us to tailor make each experience to suit the requirements of a particular conference or incentive. This often results in game drives being amended or cancelled to permit adequate session time. For this reason we would welcome the opportunity of presenting a tailor-made itinerary where the client is not required to pay for activities not participated in.
These programmes are available at both Ivory Tree and Kapama, and the range of camps and capacity will ensure that your next conference or incentive provides the best experience yet.
