We spent with my wife several days in this, full of trees , lodge. Clean air, nice stuff, green garden, and pool makes our stay fantastic. And of cause the location is very good to travel by car to panorama road, and Kruger is not so far. Thanks to stuff, hope that we will come back soon

The hotel is beautiful, amazing well maintained gardens which are a pleasure to see. The rooms are in colonial style bungalows which are quite charming, but some of the furniture and appliances were quite old and not functional at all, a renovation would be desirable. What really was upsetting was the power cuts during early hours. We had to wake...

Our stay at Jatinga was just what we needed before heading into the sabi sands. The owners made us all feel very welcome and value for money this is a great accommodation option. The new owners are working hard to get the lodge to its true potential. One definitely to watch

Jatinga is a relaxing place with great food, great staff (whom management respect) especially Trudy (friendly and professional) and wonderful gardens. The kids loved playing here. The atmosphere was wonderful - elegant but relaxed, a rare combination. The pool was great on a hot day. There is new management that are planning to undertake a room renovation which will only...

Great to see a stunning venue being utilized to potential. Food was great, atmosphere relaxing. Looking forward to future events at Jatinga. Hoping for more developments, especially at the bar things like cocktails, specialized drinks etc. And a Banting friendly approach will also be great

The choice we made was perfect. When we arrived we began feeling as we were in the middle of the jungle, but in the most elegant way. The rooms were very cousy and the service was amazing. At dinner time I did not want to leave because the food was outstanding too.

Before posting this review, I have read the previous reviews given and to be honest; I am starting to wonder if we have visited the same place.

We ha've stayed in this lodge in November and we are not very happy with the choice of this lodge. The main reason for this is that the new owners are not friendly to their staffmembers. The water in the swimmingpool didn't look clean. This is a lodge with a lot of opportunities, but the owners don't use the opportunities.
