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 a magnificent accommodation experience with 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.

Due to its structure, on wooden stilts connected by raised walkways, Jaci’s Tree Lodge isn’t suitable for small children. Kids 13 years and older are welcome.

Treehouse Suites

Each of the eight treehouses is made from a combination of gumpoles and African rosewood.

Main Lodge

Enjoy the cosy fireplace, fully stocked bar and lounge, as well as our indoor and outdoor dining areas, and browse through our African curio shop.

Treehouse Suites
