Jaci’s Tree Lodge

At Jaci’s Tree Lodge, guests are accommodated in custom-built treehouses that seem to float high above the ground. Guests can enjoy magnificent rooms offering views into the surrounding riverine forest as well as glimpses across the Marico River. Jaci’s Tree Lodge blends into the overarching canopy of the surrounding bush and foliage, making for fantastic birdwatching in a natural environment.

The Main Lodge is curved around an ancient termite mound and includes a spacious lounge, open-plan kitchen and dining room, curio shop, and upstairs bar. Enjoy your meals seated in their enclosed boma or under the stars at a bush braai/BBQ after the excitement of a day’s exceptional game viewing.

Jaci’s Tree Lodge boasts eight Tree Houses, each encompassing a giant Tamboetie or Leadwood tree. Each Tree House is constructed amongst the riverine forest on stilts, up to 4 m off the ground, and built utilising a combination of rosewood, thatch, and stacking doors so that the forest surrounds are invited inside.

A gorgeous open-plan, en-suite bathroom with an enormous stone bath and outdoor jungle shower allows you to truly enjoy the forest surrounds.

Raised wooden walkways suspended in the forest canopy lining the banks of the Marico River, connect with the extraordinary Main Lodge and its generous facilities.
