There are eight double rooms and two family suites, the Nare Suite and the Safari Suite. Each has canvas walls and large tented windows. The en suite bathrooms have rock baths and outside safari-showers. Each room has its own deck looking onto a stream, where you can relax betweeen activities. The Nare Suite accommodates a maximum of six guests, and has a kitchen where your chef can prepare meals for you, lounge and outdoor dining area. The Safari Suite can sleep up to eight guests in two double bedrooms and two children's rooms. It has a wrap around deck and private pool. Both suites are equipped with private vehicle and guide. There are also two secluded starbed suites, with accommodation over two levels, and a mix of indoor and outdoor space including a starbed.

Dinners are eaten outside around the open fire in the ‘boma'. There is a spacious lounge, a bar with a reading area, and craft shop in the main lodge. There is also a swimming pool and a plunge pool.

Each day there are game drives in the early morning and late afternoon. You can also go on guided walking safaris. The wildlife is plentiful and you will usually not be inundated by hundreds of other visitors.

Client Rating for South Africa 5/5 from 74 reviews

The accommodation at Jaci's was very comfortable. Our lodges were spacious and airy and we loved the way it was closed down like a tent in the evening. The food at Jaci's was excellent - probably the best we had anywhere. All the staff went out of their way to make us feel at home - we felt part of one big happy family.
