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.

A Setting with a difference. The lodge is all I expected from a location of that cost. Good accomodations and great cuisine at dinner time. The primary reason for the visit was to experience the new hide in the middle of the waterhole. Technically a well designed, built and thought out feature. Unfortunately is does fall short on the optimization... More
