Paradise in AfricaPosted Jul 30, 2014
Nothing prepared me for the immediacy and intensity of the experience at Jamala. As an experienced traveller and visitor of other safari lodges I was struck by the intimate exclusivity of this lodge. No detail was overlooked. The wild life and African bush was centre stage, with this immaculate lodge the vehicle of an unforgettable experience. Rodney and Nico made you feel like you have arrived home after a long journey and small details like a hot drawn mineral bath after a game drive made this an incomparable experience. There is no doubt in my mind that I will visit again and as soon as possible.

While not an expert in safari lodges, let me say that I cannot imagine a better experience exists in Madikwe park. The villas are lovely, the grounds great, the staff wonderful, the food VERY good, and Rodney and Nico are perfect hosts. Game drives were great. The watering hole in front of the main lodge is perfect for a "sofa safari" between game drives. My wife and I had a wonderful time and will return.

Simply the Best Luxury Lodge in the Bush.Posted Apr 9, 2013
Pros: The food, the rooms, the service, all of it..
Jamala Madikwe deserves so much more than just 5 stars. It is a TOP NOTCH lodge which pampers you from the moment you arrive (popping a bottle of champagne) to the moment you depart, nonstop. You simply end up wishing your departure date would be a lot further in the calendar. Rodney (Owner), and Nico (Chef & Manager) and the whole crew are simple fascinating people, which make your stay Jamala quite incomparable to the other lodges, far more superior. Nico's food is too good to be true,(Michelin Star Rated, easily). And the rooms, you simple can't ask for more; they are beautiful, cozy, spacious, luxurious, plus each one has a fascinating view of the water whole. Which makes it possible to watch some amazing game just from the room. I would end this review by saying, me and my whole will be definitely returning to Jamala some time in the future. It was unrealistically great.!
