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

Predator heaven! Lion, Leopard, Cheetah and Wild Dog in one day! What more could we have asked for? The overall experience that we had at Jaci’s Tree Lodge ranks up there with the best, the rooms were beautiful, the food was great and so was the service. The most important thing for us during our stay, however, was the quality... More

Great setting, in a great reserve. Game Rangers were great, saw lions and leopard in 2 days. Food great and the staff were brilliant and attentive. More staff than guests, so the personal attention is great. Madikwe is a truly spectacular reserve. Cherry on top was a fantastic final dinner under the stars!

This is our sixth visit to the ‘Jaci’s Lodges’ and once again everything surpassed our expectations. Safari Lodge and Tree Lodge both have very different, but equally amazing ambiances, rivaled only by the friendly staff who remember one from visit to visit and cannot do enough to help. This is the Genuine Safari Experience, which just gets better and better... More

Searching for a Safari experience on the net is overwhelming, so many different places, experiences and prices. We were in luck, a long time friend that I had flown with in the USAF and later for an airline spent time in South Africa at the Embassy and married a South African. A number of years ago he struck up a... More

It is absolutely wonderful to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. The staff here at the lodge do have a vested interest in the property but more importantly a passion for what they do and they always strive to give guests the best possible experience. I think Africa has stolen a piece of your heart and I hope... More
