Spectacular Family Safari Offers from Jaci’s and Grand Daddy Hotel


Jaci’s Lodges in Madikwe and Cape Town’s Grand Daddy hotel have teamed up to offer some awesome accommodation packages that are valid for all bookings made up to 30 June 2012.  Road Travel would like to share a great family deal comprising three nights at Jaci’s Lodges and three nights at the Grand Daddy, and the kids stay free of charge.  Contact us to find out more about this fantastic package deal.

Jaci’s Lodges are situated in the 75 000ha Madikwe Game Reserve, which lies in the extreme northwest corner of South Africa’s North West province, abutting the Botswana border close to the Kalahari Desert.  At Jaci’s Tree Lodge, perched high up in the trees, you can relax in one of eight expansive tree houses overlooking the Marico River.  For those looking for a more down-to-earth experience, Jaci’s Safari Lodge offers guests a tranquil space in which to unwind and interact with some of Africa’s most impressive wildlife.  From your balcony – or even from your bed – you can see wildlife come down to the stream to drink.

Jaci’s provides the opportunity for the perfect family safari as well as introducing children to the wonders and enjoyment of the African bushveld.  Children of all ages are welcome at Jaci’s and are especially catered for.  The family safaris have evolved from the specialized children’s safaris, as there was a demand from parents to see and enjoy their children’s wild experiences first hand rather than when they returned to the Lodge.  The family safari vehicles are only available at Jaci’s Safari Lodge – this now enables them to put families with children aged 5 – 12 years on the game drive with their parents for the morning and evening game drives.  They also have fabulous “jungle drive” during the day for the very young children 4 yrs and under.  Children 12 yrs and younger will enjoy dinner in the dining room (as the evening meal is an adult affair) and enjoy a child oriented menu with things that they prefer.  Child minding is provided free of charge while the parents are on game drive and during dinner.

The most attractive feature for parents looking for a place to go on Safari with their children is that Jaci’s WELCOMES children.  They do not merely tolerate them.  Jaci’s  staff are fantastic with children, including them in their daily duties – which is fun as there is always something to be done – as well as going go out of their way to accommodate the needs and wishes of both parents and children at all times.

Plush and playful, the legendary, luxurious Grand Daddy hotel in the vibrant hub of Cape Town is an award-winning creative project that mirrors the talent, style and flavour of the Mother City.  The Daddy is famous for its Airstream Rooftop Trailer Park – a novel adventure on the hotel’s rooftop – but a gorgeous, opulent world awaits inside.  Chic and smooth, the Grand Daddy Rooms are subtle, stylish and shimmering.  The comforts of an internationally recognised four-star hotel room are made all the more delectable as the room is peppered with clever local touches, as envisaged by Tracy Lynch.  The lampshades are decorated with clouds of South African place names – from Pofadder to Polokwane – and headboards are bedecked with African-aloe outlines.  Snug furry blankets add texture to cool cotton linen, making it ready for any surprises the Cape of Storms might have in store.

Cape Town is the perfect holiday destination for kids with an abundance of things to do.  The summers are excellent and there are numerous fantastic beaches, awesome mountains, nature reserves, forests, and beautiful gardens for children to get rid of their excess energy.  Cape Town and its surrounding areas make for an ideal family holiday destination, with great weather, friendly people and the chance to get close to animals in the wild that your kids might only have seen in zoos.  Road Travel have great info on what families can see and do whilst visiting our city, so contact us today to start planning your perfect family holiday.
