We stayed at Jaci's tree lodge for 3 days. It is a lovely upmarket place to stay. It is decorated with lots of taste and the tent are spacious and rather fabulous. For a place of that standing, the beds for kids, smaller kids that share your tent, were extremely poor. Stretchers are not comfortable enough, and kids were complaining....for... More

Family safari in August with little ones (4 year old, 7 year old and 8 year old), oldies (74 and 70 year olds), and a load of us in the middle and had a blast. There is wildlife a-plenty (we saw a lion, loads of elies and a warthog on the drive in to the lodge on day one). We... More

The accommodations are somewhat primitive, yet elegant and luxurious. Perfect venue for an African photo-safari. The room - actually a house - was huge. Everything about it said "Africa", but it had more than the comforts of home. The staff were perfectly accommodating. We became 'friends' with some of them almost immediately. They are multi-talented, providing everything from culinary support... More

We spent 3 nights at Jaci's on a photographic trip - an experience of a life time! We were very lucky that the first two nights we were the only people staying there - I now know how famous people and royalty must feel to have a place such as this to themselves. The accommodation cannot be faulted - we... More

The meet and greet at Gabarone Airport was not as effortless as it could have been. The guide from Jaci's had only once before been to Gabarone and this resulted in us getting lost numerous time before finally getting the correct directions from a police station and 2 petrol stations to the border point. Once we arrived we found that... More

Jaci's is a very special place. We spent 5 nights here and will most certainly be back. The rooms at Tree Lodge are large and very comfortable with glass stack doors and a nice outside verandah and an outside shower. They are connected to the main guest area by a wooden boardwalk under Tamboti trees. The central lodge guest area... More

Jaci's Tree Lodge was perfect for us, the trip of a life time. We would highly recommend it to friends and family. The entire lodge is full of character, rustic, but very clean and well kept. The staff was excellent and attentive. The meals far exceeded our expectations.

I was most impressed by the rooms at Jaci's Tree Lodge, the walk along the boardwalk just below the canopy of lush Tamboti trees had me already excited.
