An integral part of the overall guest experience at Jaci’s Lodges is our exceptional dining offering and we take great pride in delivering authentic, fresh and generous dishes served with customary proudly South African flavour!

With the recent revamp of our Jaci’s Safari Lodge main lodge building and new open-plan chef’s kitchen, we thought the timing was ripe for a food-focused photography shoot. Showcasing our passion and commitment to delivering a veritable gastronomic adventure with all its colour and flair, one can see why Jaci’s Lodges is The Ultimate one-of-a-kind holistic safari experience.

Jaci’s Lodges Executive Chef Beatrix and her vibrant team of kitchen staff ensure that whether guests are indulging in a fire-cooked boma dinner under the stars, or simply enjoying a sundowner stop while out on drive, they are treated to the highest quality fare with all the trimmings.

We’re thrilled to share this mouthwatering visual depiction of our Jaci’s Lodges safari-style dining with you, featuring some of our favourite specialty dishes set in the serene ambiance of our unique lodge in Madikwe.
