We were fortunate enough to stay 2 nights at Jackalberry Farm & Lodge, and would recommend it to anyone thinking of staying in or around the Kruger National Park.
We consider it good value for money, as comparable priced places we viewed online whilst making our mind up to stay there, were no way close to the high standard of the lodge, and the rondavels, in which we stayed.
Our rate include breakfast but we also ate our evening meal there too. The food was excellent, and Hans has to commended for this. The extra effort he goes to for his guests, is amazing. Hans and his wife, were both charming and great host.
The Rondavel was immaculate, large and in a beautiful setting. It overlooked the river where hippos are regularly sighted. We certainly heard them the fist night, and then on the second day, we viewed one, climbing up on the bank to eat some grass.
The only down side to Jackalberry, is the terrible dirt road to the Farm. We found it very rough, and quite a distance to travel. Our little hire car and its driver (me) were both pleased when we were back on the bitumen road.
Hans did recommend a Game drive in the afternoon which included dinner and sundowner drinks etc. A wonderful Game Drive experience,as as it included dinner, we considered it good value.
We thank Hans, his lovely wife and staff for making our stay at Jackalberry Farm , so enjoyable
