Jackalberry Lodge

From: $670.00

Jackalberry Lodge has created an intimate and very private luxury safari in Nkasa Rupara National Park. Just four luxury tents in a pristine wildlife location few lodges in Africa can beat. The area is wild and expansive with fantastic game sightings.


Jackalberry Lodge

Linyanti Swamps

Jackalberry Tented Camp lies in the far north of Namibia, deep within Nkasa Rupara National Park.The camp has just four simple but beautifully decorated and furnished tented rooms. This means the lodge accommodates a maximum of eight guests.

Each room has twin or double beds, a fridge/minibar that is filled on request, and a writing desk. The en-suite bathroom is set at the back behind a wooden partition and is beautifully appointed and spacious.The rooms all have running hot and cold water and a power point, however Jackalberry is an eco-camp in a remote location and electricity is available sparingly. Solar geysers heat the water, and electricity is produced from solar panels.

The main area, also called Jackalberry Tower, is built over three levels around a giant jackal berry tree – the camp’s namesake. At ground level is the kitchen and a small boma complete with a fire pit. This is the perfect place for an evening around the fire with friends and, on occasion, dinner by firelight.

Up a metal staircase on the first floor is the camp’s reception area, which doubles as the dining room and bar with a communal dining table. This area may seem small but with its elevation and open-sided nature it affords superb views of the surroundings making the squeeze for the camp’s eight guests, worth it.

At the top of the tower is a viewing deck or sun downer area and curio cupboard. The views from here are spectacular and can be enjoyed from a small sofa and a couple of comfortable chairs. On a clear day, it is worth scanning the vista for game, as it is possible to see as far as the Botswana bank of the Kwando River.
