Jackalberry Lodge

Discover Jackalberry Lodge

A lodge settled in the heart of the African Bush, Jackalberry Lodge derives its name from the jackalberry tree. The tree provides fruit and shelter to the countless animals roaming the greater Kruger Park. Set in the Thornybush Private concession, the lodge offers outstanding wildlife viewing and African hospitality.

Jackalberry consists of 7 suites, including a family suite. Accommodating both families and couples alike, each suite comes with a corner bathtub and outdoor shower and amazing views from a private patio. Classically furnished, each suite provides an oasis of relaxation after a day of exploring. Complete with modern amenities, guests can relax in room or spend their time lounging by the pool. The lodge also offers a curio shop and an informal library.
