Jackalberry Ridge is just the place to gently ease into the indigenous South African wilderness.
This self-catering family accommodation near the Kruger National Park strikes exactly the right balance between comfort and outdoor-authenticity, with the lure of the Big Five and the Krugers Crocodile Bridge Gate just a stone’s throw away.
There’s nothing like waking up in the morning to the cheer of birdsong from the surrounding Jackalberry trees. When you’re not relaxing near the outdoor pool area with an ice-cold beer as the little ones make the most of the jungle gym and trampoline, self-drive game viewing is the order of the day.
After a busy day exploring, stop by one of the local restaurants, or fire up a traditional South African braai or potjie, while kudu, impala and warthog saunter through the camp.
