About Jackalberry Ridge

Jackalberry Ridge offers guests comfortable tented accommodation in Marloth Park on the southern border of the Kruger National Park near the Crocodile Bridge Gate.

This luxury tented camp has all the characteristics of the African Safari of years gone by. Together with their brown and khaki shading and wooden floors, the tents create a cosy and romantic atmosphere. Each tent is comfortably furnished with a king-size bed and sleeper couches, while the bigger tents also have single beds that can be converted to double beds.

Rooms also have fans and mosquito nets for your comfort. Bathrooms are en-suite or shared with either a bath or a shower or both. All tents have electricity and a fully equipped kitchen for self-catering and guests can relax in a private lounge or cool down in the splash pool.

The playground will keep the children entertained and each tent has a braai area and covered parking. For your convenience, the tents are serviced daily.

Whilst staying at Jackalberry Ridge, you have the pleasure of viewing 1700 types of game from the comfort of your own viewing deck, or enjoy the thrill of walking along the Crocodile River while hippos and elephants drink water.

Jackalberry Ridge is less than a five-hour drive from Johannesburg, making it ideal for a weekend getaway. Experience the true ambiance of Africa in the privacy of your own bush lapa with the roar of lions or the laughter of a hyena in the background.

Family Safaris: The playground will keep the children entertained while you enjoy your safari holiday.

Camping Safaris: Offering both camp sites and tented camps, Jackalberry Ridge is the perfect place to view over 1700 types of game while you camp out.

                  Cutlery and crockery were exceptionally well stocked. The beds were in excellent condition. A bundle of braai wood for evening's braai would be next level.

                  Awesome campsite-great amenities with beautiful clean working private pool, bathroom and cupboards, which is kept clean and all in working order by staff daily. Staff is very professional and so accommodating, very gracious hosts indeed. Had Zebra, Kudu, Blue Wildebeest, Giraffe, Impala, Warthog all come visit, so truly a magical experience, and with the Crocodile Gate to Kruger Park within 15min drive, nature is right on your doorstep literally and figuratively.

                  Die karevaan staanplek is fantasties. Die badkamer en buitestort is puik. Die groot geboude afdak kan miskien kleiner gemaak word sodat julle meer staanplekke kan ontwikkel. Julle het 'n wonderlike plek. Die besoeke van die wild by die kampplek, is so besonders. Skoonmaak vir puik.

                  Very roomy and comfortable tents. Had different types of buck outside the tent camp every morning. Staff are friendly and everything is very clean and well kept. Close to the Kruger park (crocodile bridge gate). Kitchen had everything required. Loved the special touch of plunger and filter coffee, with biscuits, set aside for guests
