Jaci's Tree Lodge

Explore South Africa

Found on the malaria free Madikwe Game Reserve, Jaci's Tree Lodge provides guests an incredible thrill with a treetop safari that affords amazing views of the Marico River and offers an utterly unique way to experience the African bushveld. The accommodation itself disappears into its surroundings. Very much at one with its environment, the rooms' thatch and rosewood construction is the perfect treehouse disguise for bird watching and casual game viewing.

Each of the 8 treehouses encompasses a large tamboetie or leadwood tree and is linked by wooden walkways to each other and the main area of the lodge. Couples will find the rooms particularly inviting, with comfortable king size beds, outdoor showers and stone baths and a large balcony from which to look out from, perfect for romantic evenings. The rooms' authentic thatched roofs and wooden floors are complemented by traditional greens and reds along with modern amenities such as heaters for cool evenings and fans and air conditioning for warmer months.

This charming lodge offers guests the chance to dine under the star studded African sky around the campfire or relax poolside or nap in a comfy hammock. There is a hide that overlooks a waterhole which is great for game viewing close to camp but there are also morning and afternoon game drives on offer, all of which garner incredible sightings with Madikwe Game Reserve owning Big 5 status.

How to get to Jaci's Tree Lodge

45 minute flight from Johannesburg or a 3.5 hour drive to the entrance of the Reserve. 1.5 hour drive from Sun City.
