  • Overview


There’s just something about Jackalberry’s location that makes you happy to sit back, listen to the sounds of the bush on a quiet afternoon and watch the light slowly change on the northern escarpment of the Drakensberg mountain range.  The gigantic spreading Jackalberry (or African Ebony) tree is a bushveld icon, providing fruit and browsing for countless animals from elephant and rhino, baboons, and antelope through to emperor butterfly larva.  Its thick foliage and deep spreading shade provides refuge and shelter from predators and the heat of the day to birds and mammals alike.  Like our namesake Jackalberry Lodge is a place of calm, a place of plenty, and a gathering place for friends and family.  Here, in the heart of the Thornybush Nature Reserve you will find an oasis of understated elegance, the perfect environment to reconnect with wild Africa against a backdrop of the Northern Drakensberg.  Every thatched suite boasts superb views from the private patio or corner tub in the en-suite bathroom, with an extra outdoor shower allowing you to freshen up surrounded by the sights and sounds of the bush.
