An amazing stay at Jamala. Not one detailed was left out. From the gorgeous accommodations, hospitality and cuisine to the incredible game drives with an expert guide, the experience could not have been improved upon. The memories are countless. We hope to return.

The staff, the accommodations, the food and our safari guide were all excellent. They really aim to please. Also, it is the newest lodge in the Madikwe area. I have been to a number of them. This is certainly the best.

An absolutely stunning lodge, tucked away in the beautiful Madikwe reserve. The lodge is beautiful and has its own watering hole, which is very active. Staff are super friendly, and the rooms (individual houses) are done to the highest standard.
