At Jaci’s Tree Lodge guests can relax in one of eight luxurious tree houses built on the edge of the Marico River and watch squirrels play in the treetop canopy.

In custom-built cabins that float high above the ground on wooden stilts, connected by suspended walkways, guests can enjoy a magnificent accommodation experience with views across the mighty Marico River.

Each of the eight thatched cabins are made from African rosewood. They are decorated in vibrant reds and greens, complemented by modern African elements. 

Each room includes a king-sized bed, a luxurious stone bath and a private outdoor shower from which you can enjoy the vista – honeymoon heaven. All rooms are equipped with air conditioning, fans and heaters, to ensure your comfort throughout the year.

Birdwatchers' paradise

Suspended high above the ground on wooden stilts, Jaci's Tree Lodge blends into the overarching canopy of the surrounding bush and foliage and makes for fantastic birdwatching in a natural environment. 

Wooden balconies extend into the wide open from each of the rooms, while the eight suites are joined by suspended walkways. 

The large balcony is an ideal spot from which to watch resident mongoose families go about their daily hunts, or to observe the bird and small mammal species of Madikwe. 

The dining area in the main lodge is where guests can eat their fill or savour high tea. Enjoy sundowners while on safari or at the hide overlooking the waterhole. Alternatively, listen to the sounds of the bush or curl up with a good book at the fireplace or in the breakaway lounge.

With our excellent service in such a luxurious environment, memories of Jaci's Tree Lodge will stay with you forever. 

Our “Stay for 3 Pay for 2” Special is valid 01 May – 31 July 2018 & 01 May – 31 July 2019
