Rustic rooms, accommodating staff, lovely food and drink. Great rangers (declan), he knows all the birds in the park. Visited varied areas and saw multiple species (including 'big 5' including 3 different leopards on 3 different days. If you want anaemic international style hotel, go to another lodge Great staff and feeling or being in bush.

We popped up to Jaci's tree lodge for just two days, driving ourselves from Johannesburg (my first time driving in SA) and it was all just so easy and incredibly relaxing. We felt like we completely got away from it all. It helped that we had a great guide (Peter) who ensured we saw pretty much everything, including a massive... More

It has become a tradition to celebrate my birthday each year by travelling - the tradition is to visit some part of our beautiful country that we have never been to before and of course to stay in a previously un-experienced hotel, lodge or other appropriate accommodation. This year our choice was Jaci's Lodges and in particular the tree lodges.... More

Another short stay turned out to be as expected a memorable experience. The staff is amazing with exceptional service, food out of this world, accommodation fantastic and great wildlife. The weather was really cold but we were supplied blankets and water bottles on the game drive to make sure we didn't freeze.we will definitely be back sooner rather than later.

We have been wanting to do an African Safari for a long time, and when our son turned 7, we made sure we do one this time. We chose Madikwe, for it being Malaria friendly and Jaci's for being child friendly. And child friendly it was! We travelled with my 7 and my 1 year old. Our arrival was from... More

I recently celebrated my 50th birthday at Jaci's Tree Lodge and saw the Big 5 on my Big 50. Best birthday present ever thanks to Lucky, our guide, who in addition to being a great tracker and spotter, was very informative. The staff at the lodge were friendly and attentive. Virginia and Solly prepared superb meals. The soups, the blesbok... More
