Stayed in September for a few days and we had an amazing time. Spectacular views from our Lodge along with glimpses of animals whilst sitting on the balcony. The safari trips were enhanced by our brilliant guide Armand who was a "fountain of knowledge" and was still enthused himself by all of the animals. On one of the evenings our... More

The level of guiding, hospitality, food and service was all excellent. The lovely rooms, surrounded by trees are very calming and peaceful. I really enjoyed the hide, where I saw elephant, giraffe, waterbuck and an array of birds up close. Wonderful!

We stayed at Jaci's tree lodge for 3 days. It is a lovely upmarket place to stay. It is decorated with lots of taste and the tent are spacious and rather fabulous.

The accommodations are somewhat primitive, yet elegant and luxurious. Perfect venue for an African photo-safari. The room - actually a house - was huge. Everything about it said "Africa", but it had more than the comforts of home. The staff were perfectly accommodating. We became 'friends' with some of them almost immediately. They are multi-talented, providing everything from culinary support... More
