Good Morning from the UK,
I wanted to drop you a line after an incredible few days with you. Anja was a great host – and I think we made her laugh a few times! I was so delighted to finally reach you and be able to take my girls along to see what life can be all about in Africa. The wildlife was amazing – wasn’t even put off by Tess’ snoring! Everyone at camp went out of their way to make our stay special and the accommodation was incredible in the Nare Suite. Food was great – and I will accept all praise for being the first person to ever get up and join in the dancing with the staff in the boma!
Tess is still clutching Elias the hippo(!). They have both gone off to school today with heads full of shongololos and tik toki beetles and a thousand other memories that they will have for life. Thank you for making it all possible. Please pass on our very warmest wishes to everyone at that wonderful place.
Now what time is high tea?!
Dear Tree Lodge Team
Thank you so much for an amazing two nights. It was our first time in Madikwe and we will definitely be back.
As South Africans, We are so proud that there are places that give such all round 100% consistent service. Every single thing was done to perfection, from the meals, to game drives (JR Rocks) and the hospitality.
Thank you so much for the wonderful birthday weekend and cake!
We will definitely be back next year

The hospitality from
THE JACIS TEAM
Words can not describe how amazing our stay at Jaci’s was. There is something very special at this lodge. Every detail is carefully considered and the staff and setting is beyond brilliant.
The highlight was definitely the photographic safari we did with Andrew Aveley. We set off in our safari truck with state of the art canon cameras attached to specially built arms that could move the camera in any direction. Andrew gave us an amazing insight into the composition of a great picture and how to set the camera up to take advantage of light and landscape
Our 3 children, 14 and 11 year old twins took the most amazing pictures on this safari. We were all amazed at the beautiful images we managed to capture, especially the kids.
Our only regret was that we did it on our last day and could not go out with Andrew again.
Seriously a must do at Jaci’s ....
To all at Jaci’s Tree Lodge
What a truly amazing and special experience we have had here.
Everything has been just perfect.
The staff are friendly and efficient, the food is delicious, the room is beautiful and the game drives were magical - a huge thank you to Warwick who was so passionate and determined to make our experience unforgettable, which he did.
We will definitely be back
Eloise and Julian
