South Africa : Madikwe
This is a stunning area in the north-eastern area of South Africa, it is Malaria free, perfect for self driving and has excellent game viewing opportunities whether it be in Madikwe National Park or from a private reserve. You can look at game on foot, from a vehicle or from horseback.
Situated in the Madikwe Game Reserve, Jaci's Safari lodge boasts 75,000 hectares of densely packed game 'territory', it is possible to see Wild Dog, Black and White Rhino, extensive plains game, including Sable, Gemsbok, Springbok and Giraffe, as well as 340 species of birds. Jaci's is situated at an ideal spot overlooking a well used water hole, under a grove of Tamboti trees, on the edge of the Marico River. There are only eight double rooms, each one faces out over a dry river-bed. They each have a tented interior, walls of local stone and a charming built in, en-suite hand-made rock bath with an outdoor "safari" shower, and fans to keep a gentle breeze flowing.
