Map & Directions


Jaci’s Tree Lodge, the luxurious Madikwe Game Lodge, perched high above the ground on wooden stilts, offers guests a magnificent treetop experience. The eight rooms are connected by wooden walkways and enjoy views out across the Marico River.

Made from rosewood and thatch, each “tree house” blends seamlessly into the surrounding canopy, affording fantastic bird watching. Each room includes a king-sized bed, stone bath, and outdoor shower from which you can enjoy the vista.
All rooms are equipped with air conditioning, fans and underfloor heating, to ensure your comfort at any time of year.

Decorated in bright reds and greens and complemented by modern African elements, each room also has a large balcony, an ideal spot from which to watch resident mongoose families play on the riverbanks.
Enjoy sundowners in the main lodge while listening to the sounds of the bush, or curl up with a good book by the fireplace. The large dining area in the main lodge is where guests can eat their fill of breakfast, lunch or high tea.
In such a luxurious and playful environment, this Madikwe Game Lodge makes creating lasting memories effortless.

Everything in Africa bites, but the safari bug is worst of all.’ Brian Jackman, wildlife writer. To experience a truly authentic African safari in the splendid Madikwe Game Reserve is truly a once-in-a-lifetime adventure guaranteed to be forever etched in your memory.

On a Jaci’s Lodges safari, you can look forward to an epic experience including the possibility of seeing the Big 5 (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino), as well as cheetah, African wild dog, hyena, giraffe and hippo – all sightings for which Madikwe is famous.

Jaci’s Field Guides

Your expert field guides will always do their utmost to ensure that you enjoy an incredible bush safari adventure on our twice-daily safari drives.

Over the years, our highly qualified guides have accumulated a wonderful repertoire of anecdotes and interesting facts on local wildlife, geology, history and geography, and they look forward to sharing these tales of the wild with you, making your African safari game drive a fun and informative experience.
Should your guides see fit, they may venture off-road onto bush trails and into natural terrain to track animals.
Expect to hear languages you may not understand: Jaci’s field guides will communicate sightings and recent kills via a two-way radio, using Setswana and vernacular code words.
To ensure a private safari experience, only three safari vehicles at a time are allowed at each sighting.
Our guides make stops on the morning drive for hot chocolate, coffee or tea and home-baked rusks, and in the late afternoon for sundowners and snacks while taking in an unforgettable African sunset.
Be sure to follow our field guide blog for all the up-to-date happenings at the lodge, fantastic sightings and photography.
