Best Safari Lodge by far…

Dirk Rosendaal – 18.02.2022
The facilities are fantastic and the staff are wonderful

JULIE HARRIS – 17.02.2022
This lodge is so special. It has everything the best 5 star lodges do but more: Best cuisine w/ nightly custom menus and incredible table settings, afternoon tea daily before game drives, exceptional watering hole with hundreds of animal visitors daily (especially during tea time), accommodations are more like residences with amenities needed for warm and cold conditions (like a small house), small lodge overall, the amenities go on and on. Everyone should go here at least once!

Rod – 17.02.2022
Best Safari Lodge with incredible cuisine and exceptional waterhole viewing from the main deck.

Sandra Meecham – 17.02.2022
We have now visited Jamala at Madikwi for our fourth time. Each time we go, the owners have made additions – a swimming pool, a gym, a cosy watch tower, wi-fi in all the villas. The attention to detail given to the quests needs is just off the chart. In addition to this, a warm welcome, not only when one arrives but the owners are there to welcome you from your night time Safari drive. There is no better place to spend your time. Just superb.

Allen Turner-Roos – 17.02.2022
