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

The lodge is set in the most spectacular gardens, the rooms comfortable and clean and the food... More

I stayed here for a wedding with my family. Fantastic rooms and service, amazing wedding reception, venue and over all package. The food was lovely, both dinner at the reception and the next morning breakfast was superb. Staff work so hard! They were there when we left at 3am and there when we wanted breakfast at 9am! Very hard workers.... More

Famed for its gardens, historic buildings and fine cuisine, Jatinga... More

It is beautifully designed and looks like a piece of heaven compared to the area that you drive through to get there. Lovely manicured gardens what looks like colonial buildings. The Luxury rooms are a... More

Only stayed one night on route to Joberg airport from the Sabi Sands game reserve What a lovely place, with an almost colonial feel about it. The grounds are so lovely with woods, river, meadows all together. Such a welcome contrast with the dry Kruger area i had just come from The food was fantastic and the service absolutely first...
