Thank you for such a wonderful breakaway from city life. We couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more at one of the most spectacular lodges we've been too. The staff were all fantastic, attention to detail was there from all angles. We truly couldn't have been happier. Thank you to the entire Jamala team for making us feel so special.

Jamala is excellent for Game viewing especially from the lodge verandah if you do not want to do a game drive. The waterhole is about 50/100 yards in front of you and we saw 100+ Elephants and 50= buffalo at the same time drinking and playing there

We are experienced safari goers and the staff here made it one of the best lodges we have stayed in. Nothing was too much trouble and if a request could not be granted immediately one of the staff would "make a plan" to ensure the customer was satisfied. A waterhole outside the dining area offers viewing of leopard, elephant, kudu,...
