Walking and Biking

  • With dangerous game restricted, you can easily take a walk along the river, or pedal along the many dirt roads that run through Marloth Park. This conservancy boasts a variety of wildlife such as giraffe, zebra and wildebeest.


  • The Kruger is home to over 500 bird species, and Marloth, where Jackalberry is situated, features just over 300. Keep your eyes peeled on your game drives but also while you are relaxing back at camp.

Seek out the Big 5

  • Jackalberry Ridge is only 20 minutes’ drive from the Kruger. Grab a map at the Crocodile Ridge entrance and keep your eyes peeled for those infamous members of the Big 5 on a self-drive. You could also head out on an organised guided 4x4 game drive, which the staff at reception will be happy to help arrange. 


  • At Jackalberry Ridge you will delight in a love affair with the South African sky once night falls. With very little light pollution, and no bright city lights obstructing your view, you can happily sit by the fire watching for shooting stars.

After a busy day of game viewing, head back to Jackalberry Ridge to enjoy our excellent facilities. Get the braai or potjie going, kick back and relax, or head out to try one of the local restaurants and bush bars nearby.

Braai Areas

If you’re South African, you’ll most likely unwind at Jackalberry after a busy day exploring with a cold drink in your hand as the wood crackles away on the fire. If you’re a visitor from further afield, now is the best time to attempt your first braai and maybe ask one of our team members how to craft the perfect potjie.

Swimming Pool

To cool off during the heat of the day, each safari tent features a private plunge pool. The resort offers a communal pool which is the perfect meeting point for our younger guests who can put down the phones and tablets to enjoy some active fun outdoors.

Jungle Gym and Trampoline

There is no shortage of space for the kids to get their shoes off and to stretch their legs (and imagination) at this self-catering family accommodation near the Kruger. Besides the pool area, we also have a jumbo garden chess set, a trampoline, and a covered patio that can double up as a play area during those rainy days.

From Marloth Park, where we are situated, the Kruger’s Crocodile Bridge Gate is only 20 km away. 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.

Not only is this self-catering family accommodation the perfect base for a holiday near the Kruger, it’s also an ideal stop for a trip further afield into Swaziland or Mozambique. And, should you need anything extra during your stay, the Jackalberry team are always happy to help.
