Jackalberry Lodge

...

... is located in the Thornybush Reserve in the Kruger Private Reserves area in the Northeast of South Africa.

Situated on the western side of the reserve, Jackalberry Lodge is has public areas centred on modest lounge and dining area, a gift shop, and a television lounge, leading out to a swimming pool area. Guest accommodation is in eight comfortable chalets. The hosting is said to be excellent and the prices are very keen.

Activities are centred on vehicle safari and walking safari. Wildlife is reliable year round. There is also a small spa facility.

The main potential downside is that it part of the large Legend Lodges chain, which certainly gives it a more commercial feel than some of its neighbours. There is the potential for adverse weather conditions Nov/Mar. Also, as with almost all the lodges in this area, different groups of guests are joined together on safari activities, unless you pre-book a private vehicle at significant additional cost.

Thornybush is quite small fully fenced reserve which contains a relatively high density of camps and vehicles. We find that the presence of fence lines, overhead telephone cables and road signs does detract significantly from the sense of wilderness, although that is true of almost all of Kruger.
