Tented in lux­ury

SLOW Magazine - - Edition 40 -

The Tented suites at Jaci’s sa­fari lodge are the per­fect com­pro­mise for cou­ples who are all too fa­mil­iar with the strug­gle to de­cide be­tween a week­end of “rough­ing it” in the wild ver­sus a lux­ury getaway. lo­cated in South Africa’s mag­nif­i­cent Madikwe Game Re­serve, Jaci’s sa­fari lodge is a bliss­ful es­cape into the African wilder­ness.

The two ex­clu­sive starbed suites of Jaci’s sa­fari lodge have rooftop extensions, af­ford­ing guests the op­por­tu­nity to sleep un­der the African stars.

There are six tented-style suites on the re­serve, each with its own Bushveld charm. From thatched roofs and roll-up can­vas sides, to stone-clad walls, out­door show­ers, and rus­tic wooden fur­ni­ture, these lux­u­ri­ous tents pro­vide an au­then­tic out­door ex­pe­ri­ence.

For the crea­ture-com­fort-lov­ing trav­eller, all of the Jaci’s sa­fari lodge suites in­clude heaters and air-con­di­tion­ing, king-sized beds, and twin basins in the well-ap­pointed bath­rooms. These suites are where in­dul­gence and nat­u­ral beauty meet. The spot which best ex­em­pli­fies this is the suite’s own sus­pended bal­cony over­look­ing the ex­panse of veld below. Here, you can watch as the an­i­mals bask in the sun­shine just out­side your tent.

There are loads of ways to spend your day apart from loung­ing in the com­fort of your tented suite. Game drives, walk­ing sa­faris, and con­ser­va­tion sa­faris are avail­able for all guests stay­ing at the Madikwe Game Re­serve. For pho­tog­ra­phers, the Ter­rapin Hide (a sub­merged, wa­ter-level aquatic hide) is the per­fect spot in which to cap­ture on film a thirsty ele­phant com­ing for a sip of wa­ter, or a gi­ant king­fisher div­ing after a fish.

The communal ar­eas of Jaci’s sa­fari lodge are great spa­ces in which to while away your free time in-be­tween all of your activities. work on your tan next to the pool, re­lax in the colourful lounge and bar area, or sim­ply take in the views from the out­door deck. Thanks to its yellow so­fas, hot pink walls, and bright blue ot­tomans, any time spent in this lodge will brighten your day and in­stantly leave you in a happy mood.

For those trav­el­ling in larger groups, Jaci’s Lodges also of­fer the ex­clu­sive Nare Suite and sa­fari suite which can ac­com­mo­date six and eight guests re­spec­tively, and the Mon­goose House which can sleep up to 10 peo­ple. Guests trav­el­ling without chil­dren can book a stay at the Tree lodge, which con­sists of eight tree houses built on the edge of the Marico River.

whether you are a na­ture-lover or a home­body with a taste for the finer things in life, Jaci’s sa­fari lodge pro­vides the per­fect getaway for all.
