I was at Jaci's Safari Lodge for 4 nights with my wife and my 3 children (14-11 and 8 years old) in August 2016. Really lovely place, very clean, with very kind staff. Our ranger during the game drive was Oly: he is really nice. My children enjoyed the games drive very much. Thanks Oli and thanks to all staff!
