About Happy Jackal Guest House

The Happy Jackal offers a choice of self-catering units or B&B. The double en-suite rooms (B&B), enjoy stunning river views. These are either ground-floor rooms with private entrances and garden patios, or impressively large and comfortable thatched upstairs rooms, each with an outside covered deck. All rooms enjoy upmarket facilities.
There are 3 self-catering units: small (2 or 3 people): medium (4 people) and large (6+people). These units are adjacent to the swimming pool and within the Happy Jackal grounds.
Although breakfast is not included in the self-catering rates, it can be ordered at an additional cost.
Breakfasts cater to all tastes and include both a full English and Health breakfast. Home-made jams, freshly baked bread and seasonal fruit from the garden are to be found on your table every morning. The dining room overlooks the river and its banks where Kudu are often to be seen grazing.
The Happy Jackal has a NO-SMOKING policy indoors.
Big Five game-viewing on our doorstep makes the Happy Jackal in Colchester the perfect choice of luxurious accommodation. Visit the Addo Elephant Park, only 2 mins away, in our open game-viewing Landrover with a qualified game-ranger.
This river lodge lies on the banks of the beautiful Sundays River, is signposted on the N2 and is in the best location for game, coastal or river activities. It is only 30 minutes from Port Elizabeth airport and 15 minutes from Coega Harbour.
Your hosts will plan and book your game drives, safaris and boat trips, offering guidance and suggestions to ensure your stay is a memorable one.

                              For the third time we visit this guesthouse and just as the previous times it was very good. Clean rooms, lovely personal, great owners, perfect drives in the Addo Elephant park with a very big plus for Shaun, he knows a lot about nature and takes time for the guests. The drive is comfortable with maximum 6 passengers in a new and silent open car. When we come back, we will take this guesthouse once more....

                              We enjoyed our stay thoroughly. The place is in a peaceful environment and we could relax. The chalet was comfortable, nicely decorated and clean. Definitely recommendable to anyone.

                              The atmosphere was lovely, the breakfast was excellent and the kitchen was well equipped with everything you need for when you might have lunch or dinner. The owners was friendly and interacted with us very well. We were happy with our stay.
