- Malaria free Madikwe Safari
- Renowned Family Friendly Lodge
- Bush Luxury
- Exclusive Family Suites
Jaci's Safari Lodge is a fantastic small safari camp in malaria-free Madikwe that successfully treads the fine line between luxury and an authentic safari feel. The separate Nare and Safari Suites offer one of the finest exclusive family safari experiences in South Africa.
Jaci's has a relaxed communal area and pool overlooking a watering hole, and the eight tented suites are decorated in vibrant colours and African textures. Each suite has a large mosaic bath (big enough for two to share), a private outdoor shower and a suspended game viewing deck. With thatched roofs, low stone walls and canvas panels that roll up, the lodge's eight spacious tented suites let the outside in, making for an exclusive African safari experience. The suites are equipped with underfloor heating, air conditioning and a ceiling fan. For families looking for a more exclusive experience, Jaci's Lodge's jaw-dropping Nare Suite or Safari Suite sleep families of six or eight and feature a private plunge pool and deck; a wonderful shared space for families on safari together.
Four to five hours north east of Johannesburg, Madikwe is a fantastic option for families looking for a low-risk malaria safari holiday. The 75,000 hectare game reserve is rich in wildlife offering the big five and a rare opportunity to catch a glimpse of the elusive wild dogs. Jaci's Lodge offers two game drives a day in open safari vehicles, morning drives usually include a stop for hot chocolate, coffee or tea and home-baked rusks, and afternoon drives include a stop for sundowners and snacks while taking in an unforgettable African sunset.
Jaci's Lodge is an excellent option for families. The standard suites can take up to two extra children, albeit with comfortable camp beds that are put up for the children each day, whilst the Nare Suite and Safari Suite offer one of the finest exclusive safari experiences in South Africa. Children over five can join game drives, while families with under fives will have to stay in the Nare or Safari Suite, which include private game drives for any age.
Everything worked perfectly! We all found our trekking experience to be the best part of our adventures in Morocco. We were particularly pleased with our guide, Hussain; he did a brilliant job. He is thoughtful, knowledgable, and sweet. He represents you well.

Thanks for organising an excellent holiday for us. It's my first time using Tourdust and I've been really impressed and will certainly be recommending you to friends and family. You provided an excellent level of service all the way through, and the bespoke nature of the trip was fantastic whilst being really good value for money.
- Le Kasbah de Toubkal blew us away - one not to miss!
- The trek was amazing and my kids loved it. The camping was really fun, the food was excellent, and I'd particularly call out our guide Rashid who was fantastic show especially with my kids.
- Riad Adore was outstanding - far exceeding my expectations - it was beautiful and we were very well looked after
- Le Doux Tour was luxurious and a nice relaxing way to end the holiday.
- Logistics were great and our main driver Mustapha was brilliant
If there was one build / thing I would change, it's a very small one but some candles / lanterns to use in the evening whilst camping would have made it easier to stay outside for a bit longer.

Truly another world. The sky was enormous and the summits snow covered. Blue irises, wild herbs and fruit trees flowered on the slopes. Even as I toiled up the dry river bed I gazed in admiration.
Without exception, everyone was courteous and welcoming. Food was good ( and far too plentiful); accommodation clean. Above all-everything worked! A pick-up was promised for 9.00am. At 8.55 the doorbell rang. Impeccable.
No praise is too high for the organisation and staff. I am definitely going back.
