Happy Jackal Guest House
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 a choice spot 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, one of which has its own thatched deck. Breakfasts cater to all tastes and include both a full English and Health breakfast. Home-made jams and preserves, pancakes, muffins and bread freshly baked each morning are to be found on your table. Packed lunches, picnic baskets and evening meals are by arrangement. Evening meals are three-course, candlelit, and personally prepared suppers. Good food, good wine, good company!
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.
