I LOVE THIS LODGE! Blown away by the friendliness of the staff. Marco, the lodge manager, is fantastic and he runs a tight ship, but nothing is too much to ask. The main area is beautifully decorated, and you need some time to take all the eclectic aspects in. The rooms are enourmous, and there are quite a few options...

Compact and personal, with good food and wine. Safari guides are also trackers. Really know what they are doing. Makes a big difference. Rooms are very comfortable, whilst giving the impression they are tents in the wild. Fresh and cool and clean and airy.

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...

I just love coming to Jaci's!! Been numerous times before and cannot wait to return. Gave some recommendation on needing a bit more space for my vanity case. That's all !! I found the guide to have a lot of experience and was very enlightening with her knowledge. Hope to see you soon again !!!
