Big Five game-viewing on our doorstep makes the Happy Jackal the perfect choice of luxurious accommodation. This river lodge lies on the banks of the beautiful Sundays River and only 2 km from the Addo Elephant National Park. Easily reached from the N2 it is in the best location for game, coastal or river activities.
Extensive lawns stretch down to the Happy Jackal jetty while unspoilt, natural bush is the habitat of kudu, nyala and bushbuck on the opposite banks. Port Elizabeth and its airport are only half an hour away, and in the opposite direction the historic, university town of Grahamstown would take the traveller a mere 45 minutes.
We offer a choice of 6 luxurious rooms, 5 of which enjoy stunning river views. Guests may choose from ground floor rooms opening onto private patios and the riverbank or impressively large, thatched upstairs rooms, each with its own thatched deck. Breakfasts cater to all tastes and include both a full English and Health breakfast. Home-made jams and freshly baked bread are to be found on your table every morning.
Your hosts Liz and Peter will plan and book your game drives, safaris and boat trips, offering guidance and suggestions to ensure your stay is a memorable one.
