Adjacent to the Greater Kruger National Park lies 11,500 hectares of pristine African bushveld, Thornybush Game Reserve. The reserve is home to an abundance of species, including Africa’s celebrated Big Five. The reserve is predominantly open savannah and with a near perfect year-round climate, it is the ideal African safari holiday destination.
Jackalberry Lodge gives you an authentic game reserve experience and is a place to slow down and unwind while also mixing in the thrill of world-class game viewing. The lodge is named after the Jackalberry tree which is just one of the trees that allows the bushveld to support such a wide variety of wildlife. The lodge overlooks a nearby waterhole that is often visited by elephants and antelope - the perfect armchair safari experience.
When you aren’t traversing the wilds with passionate and expert guide-and-tracker teams, you can relax in the Hacienda or take a dip in the swimming pool to escape the African heat. Nights are reserved for bush dinners in the boma beside a roaring fire, retelling stories of the adventures of the day.
