Jaci Tree Lodge hero

Jaci's Tree Lodge

Discover Jaci's Tree Lodge

Found on the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve, Jaci's Tree Lodge provides guests with 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. 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 is linked by wooden walkways to each other and the main area of the lodge. The rooms all feature outdoor showers and stone baths and a large balcony from which to look out from, perfect for romantic evenings. 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.
