Safari 2011 – 2 of 6 – Ivory Tree Lodge, SA

The Ivory Tree Lodge is located in the Pilanesberg area of South Africa. It is a beautiful facility with individual huts including an outdoor shower. We did a game drive the first evening where we were charged by a bull elephant, saw many other animals, and were inspired by a beautiful sunset. With our jackets and blankets we headed out early the next morning on our drive and were able to watch a pride of lions relaxing and walking around eyeing two zebras below them. Next we came across a lioness resting near a kill. Across the way in a valley were two herds of elephants. In the same line of view were three rhinos grazing. We also viewed many other animals and especially beautiful birds.
