We stayed at Jaci's Lodge at the Madikwe Game Reserve on Oct 17 - 20th 2021 - We stayed at the Nari Suite it was very private ( which we loved) , clean , spacious and comfortable - the staff was wonderful , the owners Jaci and Jan were wonderful caring and great communication, Andrew and his staff was great as well ! The hide was too far for me to walk to , so next time I will stay closer to the hide - a great concept and a pity I did not have the time to spend in it - it was full days - the Safari was absolutely fantastic - Ask for Damien our safari expert and guide - he was great with our grandson ( 6 year old) and the sightings he took us to see was absolutely wonderful - Damien made our tri - he was very knowledgeable, caring , kind and accommodating ! He knew about how to position the vehicle for me and my photography - what a special and wonderful time - thank you all at Jaci's for a fantastic time !!!

Once in a lifetime experience. The staff were super friendly, food exquisite and abundant game sightings definitely a once in a lifetime experience. Special mention to David our safari guide. Never met someone with so much knowledge and experience of wildlife. An eye opener. Kenney our chef surpassed our expectations with every meal served. Mooketsi made sure we were always comfortable. Rooms were top class. Congrats to Jan and Jaci for managing a very successful lodge.

This was a last minute booking due to Covid, instead of boarding a plane to Cape Town we got in our car and visited Jaci’s Safari Lodge for five nights. This was after comparing Jaci’s with a few other lodges on the internet. There are a lot of great places out there. It turned out to be a great choice. Highlights of getting there were two fold, no malaria and less than four hours from Johannesburg. Once there the highlights were very different. The main stand out feature? Their bush drives. Our ranger, Damian, had an eye for a good viewing opportunity as he weaved his viewing vehicle off-road between the rocks and bushes as he sought out nearby resting lions. It helps of you know your park as well as this young man as we ticked off rare sightings of white and black rhino, lioness with her cubs, wild dogs feasting on their kill, giraffes of all sizes and more than once up close with a herd of elephants. We could not track down a cheetah but it was not for lack of trying. At least if gives you something to come back for. Other sightings of note included leopard and some rare bucks. That was enough to rate this stay highly but that would not do our trip justice. The staff were amazing from the time they welcomed us as we arrived till the sent us off. Nothing was too much trouble and Covid rules were followed all over. The biggest surprise was the food. I did expect it to be decent but what we got was a range of top dishes at every meal. Evening meal was always that bit more special and we were hosted in many different locations making the experience that bit more special. Our last evening meal was held out in the park as we watched the sunset too. As we arrived and saw they had set up for our dinner we noticed a heard of elephants grazing close by, what an experience to sit under the african sky and eat like that. The accommodation was excellent, the bed big and comfortable while the rest of the room had all you needed for the stay. The GM, Andrew, worked the camp non stop making sure guests were comfortable, aware of what was on offer and would encourage you to make full use of the drives and other offerings at the camp. Two swimming pools available and lots of viewing platforms to utilise without leaving the camp meant you could relax without actually going anywhere but those drives kept tempting you out into the wild twice a day. Considering the time we are in this whole trip was exceptional and we were made to feel like the only guests in the camp. Thank you guys for a wonderful time, each staff member did their bit to make us welcome and feel special, good luck for 2021.

What a treat ! The unbelievably kind, caring , hospitable staff of Jaci’s lodge made us feel like royalty . Superb food, game drives that David Attenborough would envy and fabulous food made our short getaway of 3 nights the best 3 nights and days of 2020. Huge credit to David - our game driver, to chef Virginia , her restaurant staff , Kea, lucky and her cooks, Melvyn and Shepard, and of course to the management Andrew and Rhonda.

Cannot begin to explain what an incredible time and experience we had at Jaci's! Friendliest staff and knowledgeable rangers. The food was impeccable and we were treated like gold! The attention to detail they went into to make our stay more memorable was heartfelt. I highly recommend Jaci's Lodges as we left there feeling like family and not just a customer. Will definitely visit again!
