Jaci's Safari Lodge is situated in the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve, which boasts 76,000 hectares of Big 5 game viewing territory. The reserve is also home to wild dog, cheetah, plains game including gemsbok, springbok, zebra and giraffe, and over 340 species of birds.
The stylish lodge is situated under shady trees on the edge of the Marico River and overlooks an established and well used water hole. The Jaci's team will ensure that you will enjoy superb personal service, a wonderful ambience, outstanding food and wine, and an exceptional game viewing experience.
The main lodge consists of a spacious lounge and open plan dining area with uninterrupted views of the bush.
Early morning and evening game drives and bush walks will be the highlight of your stay.
Between these times, you can lounge around the pool, lie in a hammock, or sip an ice cold drink while you watch the African bush unfold her secrets.
Children of all ages are welcome and specially catered for.
The 8 rooms are all built using a unique combination of thatched roofs, stone and canvas walls, which creates a 'tented' feel and captures all the elements of a truly luxurious African bush safari. Each room has an open plan bathroom with a hand-made rock bath with an outdoor shower, and fans to keep a gentle breeze flowing. The deck in front of the room allows you to sit and enjoy the surrounding sights and atmosphere of the bushveld.
For families that would like to spend time together, the exclusive Nare or Safari family suites are a great option. The suites come with their own guides and game drive vehicles, as well as a private plunge pool and at night you can choose to dine with other guests at the lodge or have your own private dinner.

Children of any age are welcome. Rates available on request. Children aged 4 years and under are specially accommodated with their own game activities. Children under 12 are not allowed on bush walks. Early evening meals for all children under 12 years are provided. Babysitting services are available.
Children of all ages are welcome at Jaci's Safari Lodge and are especially catered for.
Children aged 8 years and older are allowed on the regular game drives with the adults, but children aged 7 years and younger do not go out on the regular game drives but instead are specially accommodated on their own 'jungle drive' during the day. This drive goes out once a day after the parent's morning drive and is included in the rate for children. The 'jungle drive' lasts between 30 minutes and 90 minutes, and the information on the drive is aimed at the ages of the children on the drive. Parents are of course welcome to join - but must behave like children!
In addition, the lodge also has a Children's Specialized Safari that goes out twice a day at the same time as the regular game drive. The children go out with specifically trained guides and are introduced to different aspects of the bush. These safaris are at an additional cost per drive (rates on request) and are for children 3 years and older. Please note these drives and subject to availability and are completely different from the 'jungle drives'!
All children 10 years and younger have dinner as soon as all the children on specialized safaris and / or children on the regular game drives are back at the lodge. This is because dinner is served late and children are tired and hungry before the main dinner is served. If this is a problem please advise and the lodge will set a table separately for the family. Parents eat later but are welcome to sit with their children whilst the children eat if the parents are back from game drive when the children's dinner is served. Please advise your consultant at Travel Butlers of children's preferred meals so that the chef can be prepared.
Childminders are provided as part of the lodge's service during game drive time and dinner time.
