We were 2 families with 2 teenagers each and so took 4 rooms - kids at one end, us at the other!! The welcome was warm and inviting - members of staff all introduced themselves to us. With only 8 rooms at the lodge, we were going to get to know each other well over the 2 days. Beautiful rooms... More

We spent 3 nights at Jaci's Tree Lodges just before Christmas. It was absolutely perfect and a great experience for the whole family. Our ranger, Lucky, was great with the kids (aged 12 and 14) and kept all our interest whilst finding the most amazing game sightings for us. The food at the lodges was delicious and we loved the...

We loved Jaci's. The team went out of their way to remedy a challenge with our reservation and we ended up better because of it. Our guide Peter was the perfect companion for us in the bush, recognizing the dynamics with the kids and making sure we were spoiled with the animal sightings: would you believe Big 5 on the...

I was lucky enough to spend Christmas 2014 at Jaci's Lodge. Each meal each - brunch, high tea and dinner, was fantastic, freshly prepared by Virginia and the team. The accommodation was also excellent, completely secluded, luxurious and very clean. We also managed to see the big 5 on the trip, which was an added bonus, the guides in the... More

My wife and I needed a quiet weekend away, and it just happened to coincide with her birthday. We booked the day before arrival, and even with such short notice, and specific dietary requirements, everything at Jaci's was perfect. The drive to Jaci's from Johannesburg is not difficult, although the last 30km or so are on a gravel road, so... More

We stayed for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The food, service and rooms were superb but being wildlife photographers we were more interested in finding photographic subjects and our ranger, Paul, did not disappoint. We saw the big-five and that included two black rhino sightings, which tend to be very difficult to spot and photograph. In addition we... More

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.
