Suspended high above the ground on wooden stilts, Jaci’s Tree Lodge blends into the overarching canopy of the surrounding bush and foliage and makes for fantastic birdwatching in a natural environment

Jaci's Tree Lodge is about as authentic, friendly and welcoming as one could possible wish for. From the moment one arrives to the moment one departs there is nothing but happy smiling faces everywhere.

Situated in the North of The Madikwe on the Marico River, Tree Lodge is a must for keen birders, and all those seeking the romance of a forest lodge.

Wildlife in the surrounding bushveld is some of the finest that Madikwe has to offer. Wilddog are regular sightings as is elephant, lion, hyena and a multitude more (to numerous to mention).

Tree Lodge is one of the lodges in South Africa that we at Uyaphi can most certainly recommend, a firm favorite of ours (and for good reason).

Rooms & Suites:

Eight forest suites are perch high above the ground connected by wooden walkways and enjoy views out onto the Marico River. All suites have large verandahs, great for spotting all the forest birdlife and wildlife.

Each room includes a king-sized or 2 three quarter beds, a luxurious stone bath and a private outdoor shower from which you can enjoy the views, the shower is big enough for two (as is the bath).

All rooms are equipped with air conditioning & overhead fans to ensure your comfort throughout the year.

Food & Wine:

The spacious dining area in the main lodge is where one enjoys breakfasts and that famed high tea.

Diners at Jaci's Madikwe are generally either in the main lodge area or around a fire under the African stars (weather dependent).

One the other side of the large central fireplace one comes across a small yet fully stocked bar area. Try the South African gins, drink an ice cold beer or choose a fine wine from the rather lengthy wine list - the choice is yours.

Private diners can be arranged for you on the verandah outside your room for the romantics out there, or the lazy ;).


Game drives are part and parcel of every Jaci's safari, highly trained guides and spotters offer guests the best opportunities to spot and photograph the wildlife and birdlife of this "Big 7" Game Reserve.

There is a hide nearby the main lodge overlooking a large waterhole, this is the ideal spot to kick back and relax whilst allowing the wildlife to come to you.

New to Jaci's Lodges is the "Terrapin Hide", a hide in the middle of a waterhole. It is here that come can spend a few minutes or the entire day photographing wildlife and birdlife as they come down to the water to drink.

Sleep-outs in the Star Bed area above the hide is a must if you are spending a few nights here, this is highly recommended (and safe).

  • To be honest, going on a game driving and getting the chance to see African Wilddogs is not a everyday occurrence, in fact this a rare experience no matter where you are. This is where the Madikwe comes into play, although it is never a guarantee that one will see them, Madikwe does offer one of the better chances.

  • All photos and pictures have been taken from a safari vehicle whilst staying at numerous lodges within the game Reserve itself. The Madikwe is truely a wildlife destination that can compete with the very best that Southern Africa has to offer and to top it all off the Reserve is "family Friendly" and "Malaria Free".

  • Over the course of the last few years we have had to opportunity to visit this amazing game reserve in the North west region of South Africa. One of the many striking features of the Madikwe Reserve are her vistas (other than of course her birdlife and wildlife), different to anything else that South Africa has to offer.

  • If there is one thing that the Madikwe Game Reserve has plenty of, and that is birds. As many as 360 species of these little fellows have been spotted in the Game Reserve to date, and that is a number that is spectacular no matter how you look at it. Looking for birds, then seriously consider the Madikwe.
