Amazing!

Upper Marlboro, Maryland

We stayed here for my bday trip. This was my 2nd safari and first in South Africa. From the moment we arrived i was in awe. Everyone was very welcoming. The Lodge is very immaculate. Our butler made sure everything was taken care. The villa was amazing. From the moment we walked in.. i was in awe. The view from the deck and pool overlooking the river was beautiful. Everyday we would see elephants coming to drink and bath along with various other animals. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were all great. I'm a very pick eater but i could always have something that was delicious. They even did a special birthday dinner for me. Our guide Ruvan and tracker Juice were so knowledgeable and so much fun to be around.The animal sightings were unreal and everyday we saw something new. Charlotte (photographer) was great! she got some awesome photos and she and I shared so many stories and laughs in the evenings during our sundowners and back at the lodge for drinks. I spent 3 nights and it was too short. I hope to make it back again soon. Thanks again Ivory Lodge for everything. This was by far the best vacation and experience I've had.

Incredible experience

Vancouver, Canada

This was a surprise 4 day trip organized by our travel agent. Having been to many camps, we were blown away by the physical camp, the staff, the food and our guide and tracker team of Luke and Abraham. The guiding experience is probably the best we have ever experienced. Both men were very knowledgeable and very, very good with guests. The food was 5 star restaurant quality, as were the wines. We were a little surprised at the zen design of the camp...not at all an “Out of Africa” feel, but very beautiful. Wonderful experience.
