Jaci’s Safari Lodge

Safari accommodation in Madikwe at Jaci's

Your next family holiday to Africa can be an adventure to an authentic and friendly luxury safari getaway in magical Madikwe Game Reserve called Jaci’s Safari Lodge. Children will love this malaria free wildlife destination on a small stream with its delightful stone and mosaic outside showers and private decks where warthogs play and elephants graze happily.

The stream is the main artery of this gorgeous camp, the lounge placed perfectly for views across this small water way where guests can sip tea, enjoy a late brunch and just watch the birds. Later, head to the elevated bar to have a sundowner while antelope drink and maybe a predator lurks. 

At Jaci’s Safari Lodge, the atmosphere is warm and amiable, and everyone feels as if they have met before. Settle into comfy suites completely decked out in underfloor heating, attractive ceramic fireplaces, aircon, fans, double beds and stretcher beds for the kids. For more lavish detail, book the Safari Suite, if you like more space and a private splash pool to boot. 

We love Nare Suite for 6 special guests who want that solitary stay in the wilderness to find themselves, let alone the wildlife. A stone bathtub, outside shower, fun upstairs loft for the kids and extensive deck overlooking the active waterhole. The fantastic kitchen provides a social space for the lodge chef to cook up a storm while you watch, then tuck in on the patio at sunset with candles and serenity. You also get your own game ranger and tracker in a 4×4 vehicle for game viewing twice daily. 

Jaci’s Safari Lodge is all about that personal attention to detail from passionate staff and exquisite facilities ensuring nothing can go wrong and everything is always right. The 8 bush tents and two suites are just enough for a cosy atmosphere suited to visitors who want to experience real wilderness and wildlife. Cooking over open fires, star gazing and incredible bush walks make this Madikwe Game Reserve safari the best holiday ever. 

Chefs love to treat guests to gourmet meals while animals wander around the stream all day. Become an old friend at Jaci’s and all you have to do is relax and enjoy.  Safari guides are all rather impressive, deeply knowledgeable and experienced, tuning in to the animal movements and finding rare events for guests to view and be part of, in nature. 

Madikwe Game Reserve may seem small but in fact it extends 75 000 ha into the vast flatness of the North-West province of South Africa, on the border with Botswana. A dense wildlife population means that visitors see plentiful animals on each drive. Discover some of the 1600 elephants, 45 lions, 22 leopards and 7 cheetahs! Also, there are very few safari vehicles so guests are privileged to game view alone.  Accommodation within the reserve is exclusive and limited to fit into the conservation ethos of the region.

Take it from us, this safari accommodation in Madikwe at Jaci’s is a winner! Yes, Jaci’s Safari Lodge offers an authentic and friendly luxury safari getaway in Madikwe Game Reserve, a malaria free, family friendly holiday destination in Africa.



Choose the two lavish suites or 8 tented suites at Jaci’s Safari Lodge for a genuine back to nature experience in the heart of the Madikwe Game Reserve in Northwest Province of South Africa, close to Botswana.  This safe, malaria free environment is a children’s haven for environmental education while families enjoy game viewing with their personal game rangers and trackers.

Staff are compassionate, professional and hands-on so nothing is left to chance – all visitors need to do is relax on the deck and watch the game stroll on by. This deck is perfectly placed in the trees with views of a stream and the comfy lounge is reminiscent of a cosy living area in a farmhouse somewhere – colourful, relaxed and tasteful. 

Ethic style tented suites for couples feature hand-mosaiced bathtubs with bush views, king size beds, fans, aircon, outside showers and a deck that seems to hang over the trees. Family groups on safari can choose Nare Suite for that extra space and luxury, that privacy to let loose and relax in a home away from home. Kids will love the outside showers and upstairs loft for fun sleeping arrangements and they will relish game drives with friendly knowledgeable game rangers and trackers twice a day. 

Even larger, Safari Suite is a three-bedroomed villa type of accommodation at Jaci’s so bring your best friends and hang out in Madikwe Game Reserve for that summer holiday feeling. Starbed Suite has 4 bedrooms so would suit two family groups or friends on holiday in South Africa who will fall in love with the plush amenities, private chef arrangement and game drives alone in the wilderness to spot the Big 5. 

Guests of Jaci’s are treated to incredible outings in the bush to find the animals and plants, to learn about the biodiversity and one of the highlights is the unique experience in Terrapin Hide. Take unforgettable photos at this watering hole.
