I cannot rate Jah Shaka highly enough. I stayed at their new villa for a week with my university surfing club and 3 nights in their smaller lodge. The villa was gorgeous, clean, well located and even had an outdoor bar full of cheap beer. The lodge was also very pretty, comfortable, clean and had a hard drive filled with... More

We have stayed in Jah Shaka lodge for 6 days. To be objective, we are gonna list everything that we liked and what we didn't like. Speaking about pros, we found friendly people, good breakfast, quiet location, parking lot next to the lodge and a nice chilling area in the garden with large pool and some hammocks. However, our stay... More

I Booked the Roxy girl surfweek where almost everything was included. I haven't regret booking this holiday at any moment during my stay. I loved it. The... More

I stayed for one week with a friend. We had a very good time in the Jah Shaka Surflodge. Great crew, great food and excellent surf! They offer a good range of packages and a lot of extra activities, like yoga, surf & kitesurf lessons and paddle boarding. The staff was very helpful and made us feel very welcome. Easy... More

I stayed in October 1 week surfing. The surfing classes are nicely organized and the instructors now how to animate the group. The weather conditions weren't always optimal, but they adapted nicely to this. The atmosphere in the lodge is relaxing and you can meet up with a lot of people. The organized dinners at the lodge are very nice... More

We stayed at the Shaka for 8 days in October and had an amazing time. We booked to stay in one of the Tipis- the tipi was spacious, clean and tidy on arrival, lovely and cosy with a comfy chair, rugs, throws and extra blankets. The futon bed was extremely comfy as was the bedding. Extra towels for the bathroom... More
