Family of three stayed recently, and enjoyed it hugely. Staff were all very friendly throughout, and we were well catered for with excellent food at all times. There is a children's menu if you ask...we didn't, and maybe should have. Perhaps it could have been offered ? Game drives were excellent with Armand, and also speciality photographic drives (extra) we...

Wonderful location in wooded area above a river in Madikwe Game Reserve. Excellent service by all the friendly staff. Very good meals with individual tastes well looked after. Stayed in very well equipped individual thatched lodges which really felt like you're in the middle of the bush with lions roaring in the night. The outdoor shower is quite an experience....

Jaci's Safari Lodge is bigger and bolder than its sister, Jaci's Tree Lodge, and I think it's more fun for a family. There is so much wildlife in the area that kids won't get bored on a game drive, and the lodge is fenced so parents needn't worry when the kids head off to the games room, pool, or on...

We had two rooms , one for us parents and a second room for the kids. The kids had their own vehicle and driver and were under the expert...

The "tent" with outdoor shower was so nice and the tent spacious and very comfortable . It was nice to be able to sit on my own little porch with a cup of tea or coffee and listen to the sounds. The game drives were outstanding and dinner in the boma delicious. The hospitality was superb and I hated to...
