Lodges in the North West

The North West province is big game country. No matter what your budget, there’s a game lodge to suit your pocket and tastes.

Jaci’s Tree Lodge (part of Jaci's Lodges) is situated in the Madikwe Game Reserve, and offers luxury tree houses on stilts, ideal for a romantic getaway. Its sister lodge, Jaci’s Safari Lodge, is situated nearby and offers a more down-to-earth experience. There are two exclusive family suites and tent-style rooms.
