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.
