Jacana Lodge delivers in all respects the feeling of a true game lodge while still retaining the essentials of a five star villa. Beautiful well-appointed bedrooms makes it a comfortable stay but the "safari" and outdoor experience is enhanced by the outside but well-hidden showers. A huge vaulted living area and fully-equipped kitchen opens out through bi-fold doors to an...

Great chalet in the reserve. We loved the peace and quiet. Close enough to both Hluhluwe and Sodwana Bay. The unit is well equipped and the outdoor shower was a real treat. We were only unhappy that we didn't stay longer.

We enjoyed a relaxing 5-night stay at the Jacana Main Lodge. The accommodation was outstanding with 4 beautifully furnished en suite bedrooms and a lovely open plan kitchen/lounge/dining area. We loved having our own private pool and seeing various different animals on a daily basis. The staff were also very helpful and friendly. This was a restful and luxurious stay!

The man at the gate was not too sure of what and where which could be improved upon, but we would happily come back and especially when you have had some badly needed rain as think watching animals from your own...

By the time we arrived at Jacaranda we had driven a week driving around Kruger Park with days starting at 5 a.m. The peace and tranquility of the lodge is just sublime. With all modern cons and a seriously comfortable bed, my only regret was not to be staying much longer. Set in the Kuleni Game Reserve, I enjoyed a...

What an amazing place and the accommodation was the best I have ever experienced. Thomas who cleaned our braai and small splash pool was extremely helpful and found giraffe for us to see close up. Our lady who cleaned our lodge for us was so friendly and unobtrusive that we didn't even know when she had left. All in all...

This place is amazing - much more than we expected. Very private with a relaxing setting - with all the facilities you need. Staff were great. There was fresh fire wood every day and beautiful well kept private pool. Watch out for ticks!

Had a 3 night stay at Jacana lodge unit no 2. The location is excellent and very private. When we arrived at the lodge there was a bottel of champaign waiting on the bed.

We decided to go to Hluhluwe in the hope of seeing some game and staying in a reasonable place. I must say that our trip exceeded all expectations because we saw an amazing amount of game (including unbelievable Lion siting's) and staying at Jacana Lodge was a great move. The lodge was wonderful and set in lovely peaceful surroundings overlooking...
