About Jaci's Safari Camp, Madikwe

Jaci’s Safari Lodge is a luxurious, family orientated lodge in the midst of the malaria-free reserve of Madikwe. Within the reserve all of the big 5 can be spotted including both the white and black rhino; however many of the local guides in the area refer to the large amounts of wildlife as the top ten.

There are three packs of the elusive wild dogs living within the reserve itself and if you’re lucky you will be able to spot them on one of your game drives.

Accommodation & Facilities

Within Jaci’s Safari Lodge there are eight rooms available as well as two luxurious, private suites. The rooms are all traditionally decorated with large windows and canvas panels in order to let as much of the incredible South African landscape inside as possible. The rooms are equipped with air-conditioning, under floor heating and are all en-suite complete with a large bath and an outdoor shower. The Nari suite is perfect for families with space for six people and its own private swimming pool which also overlooks a watering hole. You can choose to dine in private, courtesy of your private chef, or join the other guests in the main dining area. The Safari suite can accommodate eight people and has its own private plunge pool and adjoining rooms which are perfect for children.

There is Wi-Fi available in the communal areas but due to the lodge’s location the signal is quite poor.


All meals are included at Jaci’s with the menu being tailor made to you and your children. All of the recipes are made using locally sourced ingredients and fresh each day. There is an early dinner specifically for under 6’s which takes place while you are on your evening game drives. The menu is tailored to your children’s taste and when you return your children will be fed and bathed ready for bed- so you can enjoy your dinner and a sundowner!


There are a wide range of activities available at Jaci’s Safari Lodge in particular family game drives; special vehicles are used only at Jaci’s which allow children aged six and above to join their parents on both the morning and evening game drives. You will be able to witness your children spotting the big 5 as well as many other types of flora and fauna. For our younger guests there is also jungle drives specifically tailored for children which are five and under (these are available upon request).
