From the moment we drove up the long drive to the sweet sorrow of parting two days later, it was an absolutely wonderful experience. We spent two nights and had much of our time planned before we arrived, now I wish we had decided to just spend the day at the hotel. The grounds were spectacular and the staff was... More

Jatinga is a beautiful property set in lush gardens. The rooms are spacious and neat. Lovely old world country chic public areas. Over all it would be a really nice place to stay if it was not for the owner/hostess! In our opinion she is a major draw back to this beautiful establishment. She is loud, in your face and... More

We had dinner there last night and even though the decor and setting are lovely, nothing could make up for the atrocious dinner we had. The service was non-existent. The hostess was wandering around the dining room barefoot and not once did she come to our table to ask if everything was ok. The food was appalling - it was... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Jatinga and would like to mention few both positives and negatives experiences we had over these few days: POSITIVES Service: - Very nice and friendly welcome - we were offered drinks (not complementary though)and were assisted with a luggage. We were a little bit earlier but there was no problem with accommodating our request.... More

My family recently arrived in White River only to find that the hotel we'd booked was nowhere close to the standard they had suggested online. So imagine the panic with having 3 hours to try and find alternative accommodation for 4 adults and 3 children - over the busy festive season?! We were put in touch with Jatinga - but... More

We stayed at Jatinga Lodge for a week and were pleasantly surprised. The lodge is conveniently situated near the Kruger Park but also well situated for us to explore the beautiful areas around the park. There was not enough time to see everything! The lodge is set in the most spectacular gardens, the rooms comfortable and clean and the food... More

we stayed here in august for our good friends wedding and it couldn't have been better. genuine hospitality and friendliness and we felt as if we had left friends when we checked out. very, very highly recommended and just first class - the staff were impressive. great wine cellar and sparkling white under $15 a bottle!
