Review of Jackalberry Lodge

Katie Dyson

The staff was friendly and the lodge was incredible. Our game driver and tracker were super knowledgeable about all things we saw in the bush, even the stars, and made sure we had an exciting experience.

Review of Jackalberry Lodge

Lawrence Schrader

Balanced rustic/modern rooms. Wonderful staff and food. The "safaris" were more than expected. I would not entertain going anywhere else.
