What a wonderful place. The rooms were beautiful, very luxious and privately situated, the food was delicious and the staff were very professional. We would highly recommend this for a romantic weekend away for two. Only down fall would be the gravel road that you have to travel on for 17kms, to get to the west gate, if you don't...

We absolutely loved our weekend at Jamila Game Lodge. Julie and Mark, the managers, along with Shannon and the rest of the team, treated us like royalty with superb food and hospitality. Our rooms were divine...private, beautifully decorated with oh-so comfortable beds with wonderful vistas of the game park. The main lodge was gorgeous too, and a great place to...

We had never been to Welgevonden before so finding a place to spend five days took a lot of research but each time we viewed all the accommodation we kept going back to the Jamila website. After sending an enquiry with regards to dates available and finding that Jamila could accommodate us for the time we wanted we had to...

I visited this lodge already 2 years ago, and as that experience was excellent, I went here again for 2 nights. My stay was just wonderful, even better than last time. The lodge is beautiful, with nicely appointed chalets and with every comfort. What I like most is the attention to detail - starting from the reception with hot towels...

This has been our 5th visit to Jamila and we make an effort to go there at least once a year. It has become the only destination we insist on taking our foreign visitors to. The recent refurbishments and management change has made the experience this time round even more spectacular. As always the staff go out of their way...

We found it excellent. The Family Room was very nice and newly refurbished. The game drives were awesome and the ranger had endless patience with our two kids and the game sightings were spectacular. The meals were all excellent. But most of all it was the people of Jamila that made our time there really special by stopping at nothing...

We had a wonderfull experience visiting Jamila Lodge. The staff was friendly and spoiled us rotten. The rooms were recently revamped and looks modern. The food was well prepared and well presented. The lounge, with its big fire place, is a space where one can sit back and relax. A special thank you to Julie and Mark. What a pleasure...

Super lodge, really Africa! Nice game drive, we saw a lot of wild life. And very friendly people! They make you feel at home. We spent only one night at the lodge, because of the short trip. We had a great time.

We recently stayed at Jamila Game Lodge, to celebrate our wedding anniversary in May 2016. We found the staff friendly, polite and accommodating. The lodge setting is pleasant with the main dining room, deck and pool facing the waterhole, frequented by game. The Leopard suite was spacious, with a private deck and Jacuzzi, looking out on the waterhole. With time...
