Jaci's Safari and Tree Lodges - Madikwe Game Reserve

Accommodation in Madikwe Game Reserve


Star Rating:4

At Jaci’s Tree Lodge, perched high up in the trees, you can relax in one of eight expansive treehouses (6 king and 2 twin rooms) overlooking the Marico River and watch squirrels play in the tree canopy.

For those looking for a more down-to-earth experience, Jaci’s Safari Lodge offers guests a tranquil space in which to unwind and interact with some of Africa’s most impressive wildlife. From your balcony – or even from your bed – you can see wildlife come down to the stream to drink.

Jaci’s Lodges are an oasis of calm and serenity in the arid African bush.
Whether you’re planning a short weekend trip out of the city or a longer stay to recharge your batteries, the luxury accommodation and five-star service you’ll enjoy at Jaci’s ensure that you can kick back and relax in comfort and style.
Our lodges offer two very unique five-star experiences, catering to both families looking to reconnect in a peaceful setting, and couples looking for a more intimate bush experience.

Room Description at :

Safari Lodge
Each of the 8 tent-style rooms (2 king and 6 twin rooms), with their outdoor-indoor ambiance and earthy African tones, have been decorated and designed with your comfort in mind. From a bed that inspires afternoon naps to the expansive stone baths and luxurious bath robes, the attention to detail at Jaci’s guarantees maximum relaxation.

Jaci's Safari Lodge has two exclusive family suites: the Nare Suite, which accommodates up to 6 guests, and the Safari Suite, which accommodates up to 8 guests.
Each room has a private deck overlooking a running stream where the animals come to drink. The bedrooms are a charming mixture of local stone and huge tented windows, with a cool thatch roof to give that special African Bush feeling. Each en-suite bathroom has an enormous “rock” bath and outside shower. Children are welcome to share with their parents, comfortably accommodated on camping stretchers in their rooms.

Nare Suite: Accommodates up to 6 guests.  A private 2 bedroom thatch and canvas cottage with en-suite bathrooms and outdoor ‘safari showers”, a small equipped kitchen and living area finish this exceptional retreat, giving it a true bush home feeling. A wooden viewing deck encompasses a rock pool with an outstanding view over an active game water hole. Includes private game drive vehicle and guide, suite attendant.

Safari Suite: Accommodates up to 8 guests.
Both exclusive suites feature a plunge pool and come with a private guide and game drive vehicle.
For families looking for a more intimate bush experience, the well-appointed Safari Suite is the perfect venue. This suite can sleep up to four adults and four children, and includes all the features of Jaci’s Safari Lodge.

Guests staying at the Safari Suite have their own private splash pool, flanked by a deck and loungers on which to soak up the sunshine, as well as a small lounge in which to relax after a long day in the bush. 
 
Tree Lodge:  Each Tree House is constructed amongst the Riverine forest on stilts up to 4 metres from the ground. In these spacious Tree Houses built utilising a combination of rosewood, thatch and stacking doors, the forest surrounds are invited in, to compliment your stay with us. An open plan, en-suite bathroom with an enormous stone bath and an outdoor Jungle shower allow you to enjoy your forest surrounds. Relax on the deck in front of your room, in the main lodge or wander to the forest pool to cool off. Raised wooden walkways, suspended in the forest canopy lining the banks of the Marico River, will connect with the extraordinary main lodge and its generous facilities.
