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.

Super-friendly staff, great vibe.The location is great, not too far from Johannesburg and no malaria. Would have liked a view, but enclosed in the trees has its own cachet. The food was good, but it really is the staff that win the day here. Great for families with kids.

I LOVE THIS LODGE! Blown away by the friendliness of the staff. Marco, the lodge manager, is fantastic and he runs a tight ship, but nothing is too much to ask. The main area is beautifully decorated, and you need some time to take all the eclectic aspects in. The rooms are enourmous, and there are quite a few options...
