The main lodge has four en-suite bedrooms. Each bedroom has a king size extra length bed. Two of the bedrooms can be separated into two single beds. Each bedroom has a bath as well as an outside shower. Shower in the bush with the birds and other animals which may walk past.

The main central lodge facility comprises an open plan, fully equipped kitchen. The area is very spacious comprising an open plan dining room and lounge with plasma TV and surround sound system as well as iPod facilities. There is also a pool table in this area.

This area opens out onto a large undercover verandah with lounge suite, dining room table and bar. The verandah leads onto a large deck and boma which overlooks the wetland; perfect to relax and unwind in the evening. Enjoy a log fire and the sounds of the evening in the bush on the expansive lodge decking.

The main lodge has a private swimming pool with loungers and large umbrella. Relax by the pool and listen to the sounds of the bush and see animals which may walk past. About 100m from the main lodge are two small lodges which sleep two people. These lodges are self contained and beautifully appointed. They both have TV’s and outside showers and are exceptionally private. One has its own plunge pool.


Jacana Lodge is ideally situated, allowing for both a bush and beach experience. On your doorstep, find the world-renowned Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Park, known for its Big Five. Day trips to other important game parks in the area are also possible.

Enjoy excursions to Sodwana Bay, Cape Vidal, Charters Creek and False Bay to discover coral reefs, sandy beaches, coastal dunes, mangrove swamps, ancient sand forest and magnificent lakes; all a part of The Greater St Lucia (Isimangaliso) Wetland Park, the most important estuarine wetland system in Africa, which is a recently declared World Heritage Site.

For the more adventurous, enjoy canoeing, horse-riding, diving trips in the area. Or, for those who wish to pamper themselves, there is a nearby spa where you can enjoy a wonderful spa treatment.

The lodge is a fantastic little place to unwind. The setting is romantic en VERY private.. We could even skinny-dip in the splash pool! The facilities are top class and extremely tastefully furnished. It is the ideal romantic getaway spot for that special occasion! Thanks Neil.
