Game drives are undertaken in open safari vehicles every morning and evening with the camp's highly trained rangers and trackers. Walking safaris can also be arranged. At the end of the day, a hearty bushveld dinner is taken at the open boma next to the pool where one can relax by the crackling campfire, listening to the night sounds of Africa as the animals come to drink at the floodlit waterhole.

The Lodge is named after the beautiful Jackalberry tree that occurs widely in the Southern African bushveld. It is just one of the fascinating trees and shrubs that allow the bushveld to support such a wide variety of animal and insect life. The bush around the camp teems with game. More than 60 species of wildlife can be found in the immediate vicinity and Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, Rhino, Elephant, Hyena and Cheetah are all common.

Jackalberry is also a paradise for bird-watchers. More than 280 species have been recorded at Jackalberry and any bird watcher will be fascinated by the sounds, colors and habits of the bird life here. A sure sign that Spring has come to Jackalberry is when the piercing cries of the Wahlbergs Eagles begin to drift down over the bush after months of absence. No fewer than ten eagle, three falcon and five vulture species have been recorded in the area, as well as a host of other raptors.

At nightfall, by spotlight, keep an eye open for the shining eyes of the Lesser Bushbabies as they leap from tree to tree, the deliberate pacing of a Civet searching for fruit, the sight of a bad-tempered Porcupine shuffling along, and if you are very lucky, the lumbering Aardvark out for a night's ant and termite hunting.
