Jaci's Tree Lodge comprises eight "Tree Houses", each encompassing a giant Tambotie or Leadwood Tree. Relax on the deck in front of your room, in the main lodge or wander to the forest pool to cool off. Raised wooden walkways, suspended in the forest canopy lining the banks of the Marico River, connect to the extraordinary Jaci's tree Lodge and its generous facilities in the Madikwe Game Reserve.
