Jaci's Safari Lodge

Discover 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.

With thatched roofs, low stone walls, canvas roll-up panels, private outside showers and viewing decks, the spacious Tented Suites seamlessly let the outdoors in. The main communal area consists of an open-plan dining area and lounge and provides guests with incredible views of the wilderness. Families and friends traveling together 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. Jaci's Safari Lodge offers bush walks, day and night game drives and photographic, conservation and birding safaris. There's also the chance to spend the night in a Star Bed, a hide under the night sky, overlooking a waterhole.

"If you are traveling with kids or with friends, the Nare Suite is well worth it. Plenty of space, privacy, your own chef and safari guide and a swimming pool from which you can watch elephant, buffalo and rhino drinking at the waterhole below."
