What a place! What an experience! At Game Lodges you get service and then you get Jaci's! From the moment we arrived and we met by the staff to every interaction with the staff the friendliness and professional service never stopped.

Compared to some game lodges we have been to this one sucked. Ons Xmas day when we arrived our dinner that evening was a pathetic buffet with grey vegetables. Terrible starter. We did complain bitterly and the owner came and spoke to us and our evening meals improved drastically. When I told our guide I needed a pitstop he drove...

Accom in Jaci's Safari Suite was luxurious in our...
