Jaci's Safari Lodge Photo Gallery
With the lodge being positioned between two rivers your first introductions to Jaci's Safari Lodge is a bouncy walk over a wooden suspended rope bridge after which the amazing staff greet you. It is almost as if you are arriving home or meeting up with long lost friends.
From the central lodge area, the gravel pathways lead to the rooms, swimming pool, spa and an open-air gym. Birdlife around the lodge is phenomenal and expect to bump into a bushbuck or two on your walks.
The tented rooms with thatched roofing are large and roomy, each room has a private verandah and en-suite bathroom with an outdoor shower. The beds are oh so comfy with the bonus of mosquito nets to keep those pesky little fellows at bay. Under-floor heating for winter and air-conditioning for summer, Jaci's has you covered on that front.
The meals are really good whether it be brunch, afternoon tea or dinner. A good wine selection, cold beers and a rather excellent selection of South African gins can all be found in the bar area at the main lodge.
Out of the two Jaci's lodges (Safari Lodge and Tree Lodge), Jaci's Safari Lodge is the one to seriously consider if you are travelling with the family. The whole make-up of the lodge is based around the family safari experience. If you are looking for a more adult experience then have a look at Tree Lodge.
The staff are amazing with the little ones, the kitchen offers up a child-friendly menu, there is a games room with table tennis and other attractions, there are activities for kids on offer and a late morning jungle game drive that is perfect for children under 6. Babysitting is also on offer should the kids not want to do game drives or when the adults need to escape the children.
All in all, Safari Lodge is up there in the Top 5 child/ family friendly safari lodges in South Africa.

Kids On Safari In The Madikwe, South Africa
Kids In The Madikwe, a game reserve that offers up some of the best Big 5 sightings, a malaria-free area and a reserve that hosts some of the best family and child-friendly establishments in Southern Africa.
This is the Madikwe Game Reserve.
If you're looking for an unpretentious good quality accommodation establishment, look no further than Impodimo in The Madikwe. Coming in at the perfect price, offering all the creature comforts as well as wildlife activities could easily be associated with a property 3x the price.
One will certainly not be disappointed.
A review of one of our favourite lodges not only in the Madikwe Game Reserve but the whole of South Africa.
Why and how (well you will have to read for more thoughts and opinions), but in a nutshell - magnificent wildlife, great food, great rooms and most importantly fantastic service.
One of those lodges that just blew us away. We knew that we were going somewhere special but just did not realise how extraordinary the experience would be.
Reflecting that old-world wildlife and birdlife experience - it is indeed more old school than new school regarding decor and feels.
