About Jaci's Tree Lodge

Jaci's Tree Lodge has only Eight "Tree Houses"
Each house encompasses a giant Tamboetie or Leadwood Tree. The “Tree Houses” are constructed amongst the Riverine forest on stilts, up to 4 meters from the ground. The interiors of Jaci's Tree Lodge proudly showcases the vibrant colors and unique crafts found in Southern Africa. Jaci has created a truly African lodge, enhanced by a superior personal service and a very intimate safari experience.

These spacious “Tree Houses” are built utilizing a combination of rosewood, thatch and stacking doors. 
The forest surrounds are invited in, to compliment your stay with us. The houses boast an open plan, en-suite bathroom with an enormous bath and outdoor “Jungle Shower” allowing you to enjoy your surrounds.

Whether it is on the deck at your room, or in the main lodge itself, relaxation is all around. You could even wonder off to the forest pool to laze in the sun, or cool off.

The raised wooden walkways are suspended in the forest canopy lining the banks of the Marico River. They then connect with the extraordinary Main Lodge with its generous facilities. The spacious open-plan main building at Jaci's Tree Lodge includes a magnificent bar and lounge area. Separated from the lounge, by a four sided open fireplace is our luxurious dining room.

At Jaci’s one can experience dining on the deck, above the forest floor and be subjected to the symphony of vibrant stars overhead.

Activities at the Lodge

Game Drives

The early bird catches the worm, or on safari - catches the African dawn!
Your ranger and tracker will guide you through the bush on a custom made open Land Rover searching out the secrets of nature.
One of the things about Impodimo that guests love are the trained trackers they have on each game viewer. The Guides may miss signs of spoor while answering a guests question, the seperate tracker allows the guide to concentrate on the guests.
In the afternoon, when the heat of the African sun has diminished and the shadows are longer, head out on a sundowner safari to watch the sun set on this bushveld paradise and finish it off with a short trip in the dark to see if you can spot some of the nocturnal creatures that now rule the bush.


Pre book a bush walk with your armed ranger and learn the art of tracking African game, enjoy the trees, birds and stunning scenery.

Massage Treatments

A day in the bush is not complete without an in room massage treatment out on your private deck by one of our experienced massage therapists.
