“The descent of the African night is never forgotten. There is nothing more complete than to rest by a fire on a canvas seat … as the sky grows blue dark and the stars sharpen with the clarity peculiar to Africa…”
Set in the magnificent Madikwe Game Reserve in South Africa’s North West province, Jaci’s Lodges offer guests the perfect destination for unrivaled game-viewing, unique accommodation options, outstanding service and tailor-made safari activities.
The gorgeous safari-style accommodation at Jaci’s Safari Lodge features two exclusive Starbed Suites, six luxury Tented Suites and two private Family Suites.
At Jaci’s Tree Lodge, eight Treehouse Suites, custom-built on wooden stilts and connected by raised walkways, seem to float high above the ground.
Madikwe Game Reserve is world renowned as a spectacular Big 5 safari destination, and at Jaci’s Lodges we pride ourselves on our varied and exceptional safari activity offerings. Twice-daily game drives with our expert guides provide the perfect opportunity to explore the diverse and game-rich reserve. Our submerged Terrapin Hide is a favourite of amateur snappers and photographic professionals alike. Additionally, conservation safaris and walking safaris under the guidance of experts in their field offer everyday bush lovers the opportunity to experience Madikwe Game Reserve from unique perspectives.
We serve fire-cooked meals under the stars, with authentic South African flavour and flair and our staff takes special pride in their attention to detail, ensuring your Jaci’s Lodges safari experience will be treasured for years to come.
Inspired by the unique natural surroundings, and designed with comfort and relaxation in mind, the accommodation options at Jaci’s Safari Lodge offer guests the ideal base from which to experience their own African safari.
With thatched roofs, low stone walls, suspended viewing decks and canvas roll-up panels, the six spacious tented suites let the outside in.
This family-friendly bush retreat is named after the resident buffalo bull that frequents the waterhole in front of it. The suite, which accommodates up to six guests, includes a private swimming pool and viewing deck overlooking the waterhole.
Accommodating up to eight guests, this suite is ideal for larger families or groups. The custom-built deck features a central firepit and spacious seating area leading on to a partially covered ‘star pod’, ideal for stargazing, and a private swimming pool.
Bushveld romance personified, these two new suites are furnished with bursts of colour and custom-made finishes, with rooftop extensions that afford guests the unique opportunity of sleeping under the African stars.
The main lodge building has recently received an extreme makeover resulting in a bold, refreshed, upgraded and spectacular new gathering place. It features a spacious and elegant lounge, a glorious copper fireplace and bar, kitchen and dining areas, all proudly reflecting our trademark striking colourful decor and authentic proudly South African atmosphere.
