Jaci's Safari Lodge
Malaria-free lodge for families
Jaci's Safari Lodge has only eight rooms and two suites – The Safari Suite and The Nare Suite. All rooms are built using shaggy thatched roofs and canvas walls to create a "tented" feel. Each room has an open plan bathroom with a hand built "rock" bath and outdoor "safari" shower. A private wooden viewing deck at the entrance overlooks a small stream where animals and birds come to drink.
The Main Lodge is curved around an ancient termite mound and includes a spacious lounge, open plan kitchen/dining room, and curio shop and upstairs bar. Meals are served in the enclosed boma or under the stars at a bush braai (BBQ) after the excitement of game viewing.
Accompanied by a professional guide you will spend your days exploring the Madikwe Game Reserve. You can expect to see wild dog, both black and white rhino, extensive plains game, including sable, gemsbok, springbok and giraffe, as well as over 340 species of birds.
Between the early morning and evening game drives and walks, there is a cool swimming pool overlooking the river. Lie in a hammock, sip an ice-cold drink, watch the birds, the butterflies and beasts, relax and unwind.
There are lots of fun activities for the children including fascinating games to instil a love of animals, plants and birds.
