Unique Treetop Retreats ~ Jaci’s Tree Lodge, South Africa

October 1, 2009

It’s pretty obvious that while travel destinations around the world were busy concocting new attractions, bearing in mind that “Green” is the new “Black”, and therefore anything labelled “Green” is considered “In”, South Africa already was enjoying success with a new breed of green hotels, including what is probably the coolest of the genre – Tree House Hotels!

Jaci’s Tree Lodge is located in Madikwe Game Reserve in the southern part of South Africa. Jaci’s features eight tree houses, each encompassing a giant Tambotie or Leadwood Tree.

A tree house is truly a unique experience. Walk the raised rosewood walkways to your room to enjoy the Africa’s wild, while luxuriating in silk cushions and cotton bed linen accompanied by burnt orange suede beanbags.


Each “Tree House” is constructed amongst the Riverine forest on stilts, 6 meters above ground.

In these spacious “Tree Houses” – built utilizing a combination of rosewood, thatch and stacking doors – the jungle is invited in, to compliment your stay with us. An open plan, en-suite bathroom with a unique stone bathtub and outdoor “Jungle Shower” allow you to enjoy the great outdoors.

Relax on the deck in front of your room, in the main lodge or wander off to the jungle 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.


Refresh in an open plan bathroom featuring an exquisite stone bathtub and handmade copper taps as well as an outdoor “jungle” shower.



There’s also a spacious open-plan main building with a magnificent bar and lounge area separate from the dining area by a 4 sided open fireplace.
