3 Nights Madikwe & 2 nights Sun City

Conrad’s Review
Madikwe, a vast Malaria free game reserve is home to Africa’s majestic Big Five and this 75 000 hectare reserve offers superb game viewing. Jaci’s Safari Lodge is extremely child friendly and prides itself on its wonderful children’s programme. Sun City Casino Resort is a paradise for families; there are more than enough activities to keep everyone happy, Golf for dad, spa treatments for mom and hosts of activities for children as well as superb restaurants. At an added cost families can upgrade to the Palace of the Lost City, but take into account that the Cabanas is great value and are very well suited to families.

Tour Description:

DAY 1 – Arrive in Johannesburg, Road transfer to Game Lodge in the Madikwe Game Reserve

Our representative will transfer you from Johannesburg/Pretoria to your private game lodge in the Madikwe Game Reserve.
The malaria-free Madikwe has been the recipient of an ambitious and successful restocking program with over 10 000 animals reintroduced over the last few years, all indigenous to the area. The 75 000 hectare private reserve now boasts a healthy wildlife population including the 'Big Five' and over 340 recorded bird species. You can also expect to see its packs of wild dog which are regularly sighted as well as Black and White rhino, extensive plains game, including sable, gemsbok, springbok and giraffe. Morning and evening game drives with experienced game rangers will allow time in the middle of the day for relaxation in the comfort and luxury of the lodge. 
Jaci's Safari Lodge - Lodge Room Full Board & Game Activities
Jaci's Safari Lodge is a stylish game lodge with a relaxed and intimate safari ambience. Eight luxurious canvas-under-thatch suites each have an open plan bathroom with a hand built 'rock' bath and outdoor shower. Private decks allow for peaceful game viewing over the stream below. The exquisite thatched main lodge is curved around an ancient termite mound. Dinners are under the stars either in the boma or at a bush braai after the excitement of game viewing. Jaci’s Safari Lodge is very child-friendly. Up to three children can sleep in their parent’s room with camp beds/stretchers made up for each child. Children from 5 to 12 years can join the adult game drives. Children of four or less are welcome to join the jungle drive with their parents. This is a shorter drive which takes place for approximately one hour during the morning. All children of 12 or under eat in the dining room straight after their game drive and then can play in the playroom whilst their parents are having dinner in the boma. Very young children are fed and bathed whilst their parents are on the game drive. Breakfast and lunch are eaten together as a family.
