Accommodation, setting & food all superb. But ultimately it was the wildlife we had come to see. It did not disappoint...from our first game drive to our last, we not only saw Lions, Leopards, Elephants, wild dogs etc etc - long list of others.......we witnessed them living! Hunting, sleeping, mating, calling...Our guide Antoine, (assisted by trainee guide Tahina) was excellent,... More

Wonderful lodge. The food was fantastic -- unique and delicious 5 star meals prepared daily. The staff was friendly, and the accommodations were great. Our safari guide was excellent as well! Could not recommend this lodge more.

Family of three stayed recently, and enjoyed it hugely. Staff were all very friendly throughout, and we were well catered for with excellent food at all times. There is a children's menu if you ask...we didn't, and maybe should have. Perhaps it could have been offered ? Game drives were excellent with Armand, and also speciality photographic drives (extra) we... More

Wonderful location in wooded area above a river in Madikwe Game Reserve. Excellent service by all the friendly staff. Very good meals with individual tastes well looked after. Stayed in very well equipped individual thatched lodges which really felt like you're in the middle of the bush with lions roaring in the night. The outdoor shower is quite an experience.... More

Jaci's Safari Lodge is bigger and bolder than its sister, Jaci's Tree Lodge, and I think it's more fun for a family. There is so much wildlife in the area that kids won't get bored on a game drive, and the lodge is fenced so parents needn't worry when the kids head off to the games room, pool, or on... More

We had two rooms , one for us parents and a second room for the kids. The kids had their own vehicle and driver and were under the expert... More

I just spent a week at Jaci's lodge and am suffering withdrawal. We flew in on Federal Air and were whisked away immediately for tea at the lodge where we met our guide for the week.

The staff made our stay unforgettable. Genuinely friendly and service minded! The excellent lodges and well prepared game drives with knowledgeable Rangers were a pure joy. We were spoiled to the max with delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner. All in all a wonderful experience!
