The submerged Terrapin Hide is a favourite of amateur snappers and photographic professionals alike.
Madikwe Game Reserve is a 75 000-hectare wildlife reserve that lies in the extreme northwest of South Africa. With easy access via car or aeroplane, Jaci’s Lodges are a mere 3½-hour drive or an hour’s flight from Johannesburg. The hide is a stand-out feature of Jaci’s Safari Lodge, accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Fully equipped with red LED interior lights, spotlights and a radio, this unique vantage point is enjoyed by not only photographers but all lodge guests.
The gorgeous safari-style accommodation at Jaci’s Safari Lodge features two exclusive Starbed Suites, six luxury Tented Suites and two private Family Suites. Inspired by the unique natural surroundings, and designed with comfort and relaxation in mind, the accommodation options at Jaci’s Safari Lodge offer guests the ideal base from which to experience their own African safari. The tented suites have thatched roofs, low stone walls, suspended viewing decks and canvas roll-up panels, letting the outside in. The Starbed Suites are bushveld romance personified: these two new suites are furnished with bursts of colour and custom-made finishes, with rooftop extensions that afford guests the unique opportunity of sleeping under the African stars. The Nare Suite is named after the resident buffalo bull that frequents the waterhole in front of it. Accommodating up to six guests, with a private swimming pool the Nare Suite exudes safari glamour. Lastly, the Safari Suite for up to eight guests has a custom-built deck with a central firepit and spacious seating area leading on to a partially covered ‘star pod’, ideal for stargazing, and a private swimming pool.
Madikwe Game Reserve is world renowned as a spectacular Big 5 safari destination, and at Jaci’s Lodges they pride themselves on varied and exceptional safari activities. Twice-daily game drives with expert guides provide the perfect opportunity to explore the diverse and game-rich reserve. The submerged Terrapin Hide is a favourite of amateur snappers and photographic professionals alike. Additionally, conservation safaris and walking safaris under the guidance of experts in their field offer everyday bush lovers the opportunity to experience Madikwe Game Reserve from unique perspectives.
