Meet Jaci's Team: Mocca

by Lotty van Hulst - Media – 20 September 2014

Jaci’s is always buzzing with business. Every staff-member is adding their share to that what makes it such a special place. But, there’s more going on than just what our guests can witness. A lodge can’t be a success without people behind the scenes, making sure everything goes as it should. That’s why we would like to put the spotlight on these hard working, busy bees in the background. For this week, meet Mocca!
