Jaci's Safari Lodge Location
Jaci's Safari Lodge is built in a curve around an ancient termite mound and masterfully blends into its magnificent surroundings. The interiors reflect Jaci's Safari Lodge's unique style and attention to details. Originally built as Jan and Jaci's home, this exclusive bush retreat accommodates a maximum of 20 (twenty) guests and has an unsurpassed African safari feel to it.
Jaci's Safari Lodge is situated at an ideal spot overlooking an established and well used water hole, under a grove of Tamboti trees, on the edge of the Marico River in the Madikwe Game Reserve.
