5 Star Madikwe Game Reserve image

Jaci's Tree Lodge opened in December 2002 - with Eight "Tree Houses", each encompassing a giant Tambotie or Leadwood Tree. Each “Tree House” is constructed amongst the Riverine forest on stilts, up to 6 meters above the ground. In these spacious “Tree Houses” – built utilizing a combination of rosewood, thatch and stacking doors - the forest surrounds are invited in, to compliment your stay with us. An open plan, en-suite bathroom with an enormous stone bath and outdoor “Jungle Shower” allow you to enjoy your forest surrounds. 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, will connect with the extraordinary Main Lodge and its generous facilities.

Jaci’s Tree Lodge is the realisation of Jan’s dream – an elevated lodge that appears to float above the ground… Jaci’s Lodges founder and owner Jan van Heteren, was profoundly inspired by the Okavango Delta’s characteristically intimate, secluded, luxury camps that seem to grow organically from the earth. Each suite is built to sit high on stilts and with a focus on ecological construction, ensuring they blend seamlessly into their environment.

The Main Lodge at Jaci’s Tree Lodge, hidden in the riverine forest along the banks of the Marico River, and recently refurbished, provides a cool retreat from the heat of African summer days and a cosy fireside sanctuary during chilly winter months.

The focus of a walking safari is the things you may miss on a game drive: the smaller animals, insects and birds, surrounding trees and grasses, with a spotlight on animal spoor and dung, small flowers and plants, bird calls and the aromatic smells of herbs and shrubs.

Conservation Safaris

Conservation safaris at Jaci’s Lodges are designed to help everyday bush lovers contribute to on-the-ground wildlife conservation efforts taking place in the greater Madikwe Game Reserve.

This initiative includes exhilarating involvement in wildlife safeguarding efforts within the reserve, such as notching and microchipping rhino; collaring elephants; and collecting genetic material to help record, track and protect Africa’s endangered wildlife, branding lions and gathering information for North West Parks Board field rangers to help effectively manage Madikwe’s core species of lion and rhino and African wild dog relocation.

Each conservation safari is led by a team of professionals, including:

A wildlife veterinarian with specific training in immobilising wild animals, and with knowledge of their habitat, stress levels and other factors that may affect the outcome of darting procedures.
A helicopter pilot skilled in low-level flying, who enables the vet a clear and steady shot.
Field rangers who assist the team in doing the job quickly and efficiently, helping gather essential data and recording the details of each animal, contributing to the successful outcome of a conservation safari.

Walking Safaris

Accompanied by an expert walking-trails guide, guests can explore parts of Madikwe Game Reserve on foot.

Tips and tricks

  • We recommend a reasonable level of fitness, as walks vary between 5km and10km over three to four hours.
  • The guide will match the pace of the slowest person in the group, so there’s no need to worry about having to keep up.
  • No guests under the age of 16 years are allowed on walking safaris.
  • Opt for neutral-coloured clothing, and shorts in summer and long trousers in winter.
  • Wear comfortable, closed walking boots and socks, and a wide-brimmed hat.
  • Don’t forget your sunblock.
  • Try to carry as little as possible – stick to a small daypack containing your camera, binoculars and notebook.
  • Your guide will carry a first-aid kit, water, a radio for emergencies and toilet paper.

Safari game drives take place when the likelihood of sightings is at its highest early morning and late afternoon. Winters are dry and evening temperatures may drop to 0°C, while the wet summers are characterized by daily highs of up to 38°C. Game drives take into account these shifts in temperature, to ensure that guests are in no discomfort while out on a drive.

The morning drive leaves after a light breakfast at first light, while the later drive usually departs around 15h00 to 15h30, depending on the season. Each drive lasts for three-and-a-half hours on average, but if a spectacular or unusual sighting is made, it could last longer.
