Great place to pass a few nights, right on the fringes of Addo Park. Beautiful riverside location, with the sun streaming in across the expansive grassy lawn. There is easy access to a bridge and disused paved road, providing a great place for bike riding or the early morning walk/run.
We rented the 2-bedroom cottage, as we were traveling with family. The place was nice a roomy, except for one of the bedrooms which was really cramped and had 2 single beds. Nice kitchen and living area, however the TV was an embarrassingly small, old CRT-style unit. Also, the Wifi signal was so weak that we couldn’t pick it up in our unit and had to go outside, closer to the main lodge in order to connect. A stronger Wifi signal would’ve been nice. The cottage had no views but was surrounded by a nice walled yard area. Very clean and well-maintained throughout.
We received a very warm welcome from Peter, the owner, and he happily provided answers to all of our many questions. Great host, made us feel at home. The breakfast, served in the main lodge building, was excellent – a great selection of fruit and yogurt followed by eggs made to order. Delicious!
Overall we had a really nice stay at the Happy Jackal and would very happily stay here again. Highly recommended to all other travelers. Good location for trips into Addo Park.
