Thank you all so much for giving us the most wonderful experience. We arrived with no idea what to expect and as the holiday unfolded we became more amazed at what we saw. Animals in abundance on every safari trip. Our guide was so knowledgeable and friendly and the staff at the lodge could not be faulted. The best service...

We always aim to visit Madikwe in early May , when it is not too cold yet. We have been coming annually for the past 19 years -and although we have not always stayed at Jacis every time, it is the ONE lodge we come back to again and again-this time the 6th time around and as always we were...

Jacis Tree Lodge is fantastic. From the rooms and decor to the staff and rangers. The terrapin Hyde is so much fun and such a great way to view animals and birds. We had the most incredible honeymoon and cannot wait to come back! Ps - most comfortable bed I've ever slept in!

On short notice we planned a quick breakaway to Madikwe Game Reserve and found availability at Jaci's Safari Lodge and what a wonderful time we had. We enjoyed the overall look and feel of the lodge. Management and staff are professional and making sure that guests are comfortable and enjoy their stay.

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!
