Special is valid 01 November – 15 December 2023

Safari walks at Jaci's are subject to the availability of our qualified, on-site trails guide. The duration of walks may vary due to number of guests, weather conditions and game drive schedules. Accompanied by our expert trails guide, guests are afforded the opportunity to explore parts of Madikwe Game Reserve on foot. You may not spot many of the larger animal species (although you will almost certainly see their spoor), but you will learn so much more about the relationship between flora and fauna in the African bush, making it an
unforgettable experience for all your senses. Terms & Conditions as well as age restrictions / limitations apply

We love families! Children and Families of all ages and sizes are most welcome at Jaci’s Safari Lodge.

With twice daily game drives, family-style dining experiences and convenient accommodation options, all family members are assured to get the most out of their African adventure.

Accommodating up to eight guests, The Safari Suite is nestled amongst a Tamboti grove and is ideal for larger families or groups. The custom-built deck features a central fire pit and spacious seating area leading on to a partially covered starpod and private swimming pool, all overlooking the Marico River.

Nare Suite, which accommodates up to six people, is ideal for families or groups travelling together. The suite includes a master and guest bedroom, an open-plan bathroom with a generous stone bath and outdoor shower, swimming pool and an upstairs loft – perfect for children to stretch out and chill in.

Conservation safaris at Jaci’s Lodges are designed to help everyday bush lovers contribute to on-the-ground wildlife conservation efforts taking place in the greater Madikwe Game Reserve.
This initiative includes exhilarating involvement in wildlife safeguarding efforts within the reserve, such as notching and microchipping rhino, collaring elephants, branding lions and gathering information for North West Parks Board field rangers to help effectively manage Madikwe’s core species of lion and rhino and African wild dog relocation.

Each conservation safari is led by a team of professionals, including:

A wildlife veterinarian with specific training in immobilising wild animals, with knowledge of their habitat, stress levels and other factors that may affect the outcome of darting procedures.
A helicopter pilot skilled in low-level flying, who enables the vet a clear and steady shot.
Field rangers who assist the team in doing the job quickly and efficiently, helping gather essential data and recording the details of each animal, contributing to the successful outcome of a conservation safari.
Conservation Safaris are subject to additional costs, availability and prior arrangement.

Say “I DO” against a backdrop of breathtaking vistas and the gorgeous bushveld, with your closest family and friends. Surrounded by nothing but Mother Nature, with the setting African sun as your witness, the special events crew at Jaci’s Lodges will do their very best to make sure that your wild wedding is a most memorable affair.
