Meet Jaci's Team: Debbie

by Lotty van Hulst - Media – 10 October 2014

Jaci’s is always buzzing with business. Every staff-member is adding their share to that what makes it such a special place. But, there’s more going on than just what our guests can witness. A lodge can’t be a success without people behind the scenes, making sure everything goes as it should. That’s why we would like to put the spotlight on these hard working, busy bees in the background. For this week, meet Debbie!

Our head chef Nyoka made an amazing juice for high tea the other day. A fresh, sweet drink with a little kick in it!
Now you can make it yourself. Give it a go, it’s super easy


Take a drive on the dark side...

by Lotty van Hulst - Media – 2 October 2014

Every afternoon drive at Jaci’s ends with a bit of a night drive. After our guests have seen the African sun setting while enjoying a fresh drink and some snacks, they hop back on the vehicle to see what the night will bring.

Jaci's Recipe: Homemade beers

by Lotty van Hulst - Media – 24 September 2014

Happy Heritage Day!
South Africa is celebrating National Heritage Day, also known as National Braai Day. Our guests are having boma- and starlight-dinner tonight, were their food will be prepared on the braai. At Jaci’s we try and cook outside on the fire at least three or four times a week, braai day or no braai day! Our chefs at Jaci’s Tree Lodge did want to do something out of the ordinary for today’s special celebration though, that’s why they’ve prepared Homemade Ginger Beer and Traditional Umqombotsi Beer. You can find the recipes of these beers, made by Virginia, here.
