If you are a couple and want a gorgeous place to go to... this is your first choice!! This is a mix of 5 star resort with wildlife, what more could you possibly need. I will definitely recommend going on all of the game drives because you never know what you will find!

Our 3 nights at the tree lodge were delightful. Friendly and helpful staff - not to mention excellent singing voices, ever so luxurious accommodations, delicious food, extremely knowledgeable field guide, and more animals than we could keep track of! Would definitely recommend this lodge!

Our third visit to Jaci's Tree Lodges and we can't wait to return already. We spent three nights at the end of a weeks visit to SA. For us, it's the great combination of the amazingly friendly and attentive service, the good quality facilities and spacious tree houses (far better quality than the description suggests) and location. The 'icing on...

Stayed in September for a few days and we had an amazing time. Spectacular views from our Lodge along with glimpses of animals whilst sitting on the balcony. The safari trips were enhanced by our brilliant guide Armand who was a "fountain of knowledge" and was still enthused himself by all of the animals. On one of the evenings our...

The level of guiding, hospitality, food and service was all excellent. The lovely rooms, surrounded by trees are very calming and peaceful. I really enjoyed the hide, where I saw elephant, giraffe, waterbuck and an array of birds up close. Wonderful!
