Jaci's Safari Lodge

Located in 75,000 hectares of the malaria free Madikwe Game Reserve, Jaci's Safari Lodge is situated alongside the Marico River and in prime Big 5 territory. Jaci's Safari Lodge is a unique, open-plan thatched area built around a huge termite mound and is popular with families. The 8 rooms are a combination of stone, canvas and thatch and each room has a private wooden deck for viewing the surrounding area.

Adorned in vibrant African colours, the comfortable rooms each present underfloor heating, to keep out the chills in the colder winter months, and a ceiling fan and air conditioning for when the African sun gets too much. For those wishing for a spot of romance at the lodge a large mosaic bath, big enough for two, is on offer as well as an outdoor shower. The main communal area consists of an open plan dining area and lounge and provides guests with incredible views of the wilderness.

The lodge is very much family friendly with baby sitting and a children's menu on offer. Jungle drives are available for children younger than 4 and family safaris for 5 – 12 year olds. Families are well accommodated in the Safari and Nare Suite, they are large enough to sleep 6 to 8 people and provide their own game vehicles, plunge pool and guides.
