The Main Lodge House features a large patio and grassed viewing area, a swimming pool and open-plan kitchen/bar as well as indoor and outdoor dining facilities. We believe that our South African inspired cuisine is best enjoyed under African skies and we pride ourselves on regular authentic outdoor dining experiences.

Featuring locally produced and designed fabrics, furnishings and crafts, the main house is a show piece of custom creations including a brightly coloured calabash chandelier, woven basket wall art and a unique sofa that makes a bold decor statement. The sections of vibrant green, blue and red wall colours are anchored by dark wood antique furniture, exposed thatch ceilings and concrete floors.

Follow the path through the spectacular landscaped indigenous garden to the separate Guest Cottage, fire pit and boma areas, all located just a short distance from the main house.

Twice-daily game drives depart from the main house in your private game-viewing vehicle are led by our on-site field guide and included in the Jaci’s Sabi House safari experience.

Our fully stocked bar offers guests a special selection of South African wines, local beers, premium spirits and all other beverages, which are included in our rack rates. All meals are prepared on site by private chef and made with authentic South African flair and authenticity.

We highly recommend a 3-night minimum stay in order to benefit from the full private safari experience.

Main House Bedroom

The master bedroom in the Main Lodge House boasts spectacular bush views and designer interiors – bursts of vibrant, bold colours and patterns are contrasted with muted tones of natural stone, concrete and thatch. The luxurious linens, high quality furnishing, custom finishes and personal touches make for an unforgettable luxurious stay in your own home-away-from-home.

The king-bedded room accommodates a maximum of 2 persons and has an en-suite bath, shower, toilet, bidet and hand basin.

The Guest Cottage
Echoing the bold yet natural design elements from the main house, these two unique rooms are dressed in bright prints and colours, and balanced with spacious, light architectural features. Large double doors invite the outdoors in so you can enjoy your view from your bed or private seating patio area.

The separate Guest Cottage at Jaci’s Sabi House is comprised of 2 individual twin-bedded rooms, each accommodating a maximum of 2 guests. Each room has its own en-suite bathroom with shower, toilet and handbasin.
