What we love

Located on the baron expanse of the Madikwe Game Reserve, each of the 5 individual lodges are a home away from home and offer elegant comfort in extraordinary nature.

Setting the scene

Jamala is a luxury safari lodge set in the heart of the Madikwe Game Reserve.  With 5 luxurious free-standing villas, Jamala offers an intimate bush experience that elegantly combines colonial style with African eccentricity. Set in the pristine 75 000 hectare malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve, Jamala is the ideal place for that ultimate safari experience.


Each of the five free-standing villas has been carefully positioned to make the most of the spectacular views of the landscape and the Jamala waterhole in front of camp. The villas consist of a spacious bedroom with separate lounge area and expansive decks, perfect for enjoying romantic dinners. En-suite bathrooms have outdoor rain showers, and each villa enjoys private rim-flow pools.


Jamala is a fantastic place for food lovers with the lodges award winning chef offering up beautiful creations all served beneath the African night sky.  


There are morning and evening game drives where you can catch the wildlife going about their day to day duties, we recommend going on both whilst relaxing in between by taking advantage of the impeccable dining or magical spa treatments on offer. There are wild dogs to witness or over 300 types of birds to learn about and see. For those wanting to watch from a statutory position then the deck and watchtower can assist you.


Children are more than welcome on the resort but we recommend other game reserve hotels and lodges ahead of Jamala, Madikwe for family holidays.


Scheduled flights to and from Madikwe Game Reserve are available, twice per day from Johannesburg. These flights are operated by national carrier Federal Air. Flight duration is approximately 1-hour. Alternatively it is about a 4-hour drive from Johannesburg.
