Everything was relaxed and most comfortable. A lovely friendly ambiance.All needs where catered for. Thank you all so much, Nicky and Rob Wilson.
Posizione invidiabile ad 1,4 km dall'ingresso sud dell'Addo. Staff cordiale. Tutto familiare e curato nei minimi particolari. Una colazione eccellente preparata in casa. Really an exellent place where you can spend one or more nights visiting Addo region and eastern cape. It will be great for you to try the home made breakfast as you are at your own home.
Extremely accommodating and helpful hosts, lovely rooms.
No on site dinner, only option in town seems to be a pub - was great for us for one night but worth knowing!
This place had great access to Addo park. Couldn't have made it easier to get to. The accommodations were fine.
There was a lot of noise from neighbors.
The location is perfect as a base for exploring the southern section of the Addo E. Park; the location is also lovely in itself, being by a river you can stroll out to; there is a heated pool; the room we had was comfy in every way, and tastefully decorated; the breakfasts (included) are super; and your hosts are very genuine and pleasant to interact with--really perfect for the kind of business they have chosen to run. Couldn't be run better. I can recommend the Happy Jackal enthusiastically!
The lodge and rooms are excellent, large and beautiful decorated and offer a view on the river. the location next to the parc is great. You can book great trips at the lodge, one day trip to Addo national parc (elephants!) and a half day trip to a private game farm (lions!)
There are not many restaurants nearby. Please ask the staff to book one for you.
Second time I have stayed such great accommodation and wonderful breakfasts.Perfect for a trip to Addo just a couple of kilometres to the gate .
We enjoyed our stay very much. If you like to visit the Addo Elephant Park - the location is perfect.
Fresh bread, lovely people, beautiful rooms, perfect!
Comfortable room and livingroom, beautiful decoration. Hosts are friendly and willing to help you out. Quiet environment and close to addo park. We would stay there again!

I really love everything in this place ! The location very closed to Addo Park, the building, the room with terrace, comfortable, clean, large. Wifi is a must and for a French Guy, I really enjoy the homemade Bread for the Breakfast

Liz & Peter were just the best hosts and very helpful. And the breakfasts were out of this world, especially Liz' banana bread.
perfect location for Safari trips to Addo and Scotia parks. Lovely big room with a balcony over looking Sunday river
Lovely breakfast and close proximity to The Addo Elephant Park.

Great breakfast, very good layout of facilities and ideally situated to visit Addo. Very good guesthouse and great value for money. Will definitely visit again.
Stayed at Happy Jackal for one night only on our way through the country and really wish we could have been there for longer. Such lovely people in a beautiful location. Will definitely book a room here again if we are ever around again.
Just a few minutes away from the Addo Park South Entrance. 80m away from the Sunday River, just crossing the lawn and relax on the private jetty.
