Service was excellent, all the staff service was super! Special mention to our guide Wayne, professional, experienced and fun at the same time. Stayed 2 nights, did 4 game drives, saw several animals (lion elephant giraffe zebra impala hyena wilddog rhinos - fight the poachers - and many others), missed the leopard buffalo and cheetah (the last is very rare...

When you love to travel and love nice places you are not often surprised at how amazing a place is, but this time I was. Jaci's Safari Lodge was amazing. Our time there was too short. I could have stayed for weeks. Every game drive was a new experience. Every day was a new adventure. I was there with my...

Best Vacation Ever! Lovely & luxurious rooms. Great food. Amazing animal interactions. However, the thing we will keep with us FOREVER is the caring and committed staff. We felt like every person's mission was to make our vacation amazing in a very authentic way. The caring and attention to detail is something that is not easily trained but comes from...

Visiting Jaci's was an amazing experience. The game drives were awesome and our family, age 6-83, had a fantastic time. The rooms were spacious and the food excellent. The guides were phenomenal. I can't wait Togo back.

Our stay at Jaci's was really a great experience! The staff is warm and welcoming, the lodge was clean and you couldn't wish for anything more. Great high tea, dinner and brunch- and of course the game drives were the most special! Highly recommended!

A very special setting amongst the trees! The small size of the lodge lends itself to very personal service from attentive staff and game rangers. Its an all inclusive package which benefits the traveller.

We recently had a Big gathering for one night at Jacis Camp with the Community Conservation programme attended by Landrover and Kingsley Holgate Foundation. The Boma dinner was amazing and Jan and Jaci were on hand to host us. Management folk like Wayne, Vicky, Lauren and Mokka were all amazing. Jaci Lodges facilities are 5 star and the service is...

From the moment I arrived, where three members of staff greeted me, to the moment I departed three days later I received an attentive and personalised travel experience. This was particularly important to me as a solo traveller. The lodge was simply delightful; with an attractive, colourful, afri-chic designer look set discreetly among mature trees on a well chosen site...

We loved the low key yet extremely comfortable lodge and the warm, personal service. The highlights included the fanatastically exciting game drives guided by the exceptional Warick and the farewell dinner which included traditional tribal songs presented by the staff.

Luxury, good food, tasty wines and friendly and attentive staff. Ranger knew a lot of the wildlife and even knew where to find the most secluded lions far in the bush. Fantastic lodge with amazing staff.
