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.

  • Game Drives (dawn and afternoon- in 10 seater open vehicles)
  • Archery
  • Quad Biking:
  • Air Gun
  • Interactive Drumming
  • African Marimba Band
  • Tribal Show
  • Percussion Band
  • Snake Demonstration
  • Village Walk
  • Various other activities available in the Sun City complex

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.

We offer a wide variety of fun-filled leisure activities for couples, families or groups. A list of activities can be found here:

Archery

Archery is one of the ancient activities that we offer using modern equipment including modern re-curve bows. The guide will brief you on how to use the equipment safely and share a story about the San hunters. Enjoy the opportunity to learn the technique of this challenging art form.

Airgun

Experience the satisfaction of shooting at a very small target using pellets. The guide will take you through a proper safety instruction on how to use the equipment.

Interactive drumming

Drumming is a part of African culture that has been used for centuries as a form of expression and was also one of the ways in which communities communicated with each other. Come and feel the vibrations from head to toe. We need a minimum of five people for this experience and have the capacity to accommodate up to 120 people.
