    Good Morning from the UK,

    I wanted to drop you a line after an incredible few days with you. Anja was a great host – and I think we made her laugh a few times! I was so delighted to finally reach you and be able to take my girls along to see what life can be all about in Africa. The wildlife was amazing – wasn’t even put off by Tess’ snoring! Everyone at camp went out of their way to make our stay special and the accommodation was incredible in the Nare Suite. Food was great – and I will accept all praise for being the first person to ever get up and join in the dancing with the staff in the boma!

    Tess is still clutching Elias the hippo(!). They have both gone off to school today with heads full of shongololos and tik toki beetles and a thousand other memories that they will have for life. Thank you for making it all possible. Please pass on our very warmest wishes to everyone at that wonderful place.

    Now what time is high tea?!

    We stayed three nights at Jacis and it was excellent! Delicious food, awesome game drives, superb staff and super comfy beds.
    Highlights of the drive includes wild dogs and pups dining on a kudu, a one month old baby elephant that seemed like a drunkard (a happy happy drunkard), cheetah and very bouncy springbok.
    Cool hide to view the animals at the waterhole. Keep up the great place and thanks for your part in making madikwe fab!

    Dear Jacis Madikwe Team
    We had an unforgettable experience in Tree house #7 and enjoyed every ride with Anja a lot. We learnt so much about nature and wildlife that we can be sure we will not forget this experience.
    Further, the hospitality, the gourmet dinners, and the friendliness of the lodge staff was outstanding and made us feel very welcome.
    Thank you all for this great vacation.
