Jatinga Country Lodge is everything a 5-star country retreat in South Africa should be, offering tranquillity, fine dining, charming hospitality, and luxurious accommodation.

The White River runs through its magnificent gardens and you can enjoy a sundowner on the elevated deck overlooking the river while observing the birdlife - the lodge has its own checklist of 98 birds.

Jatinga’s private open-sided chapel makes an enchanting wedding location.

The 16 superior rooms and four luxury suites are set in lush sub-tropical gardens or overlooking the citrus orchards. Rooms are decorated in different styles, from French Country to African Colonial.

All rooms have air-conditioning, a mini-bar, satellite television, fresh flowers, birding guides, etc. Garden suites have king-size beds or two queens. The open-plan honeymoon suite is furnished with a four-poster bed and has a private garden with a plunge pool. Three of the larger rooms have king-size beds; the others have a queen-size plus a single.


Jatinga has a reputation for fine dining, and the à la carte restaurant is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A private meal can be served in the wine cellar, or at a table in a secluded spot in the gardens. Gourmet picnic hampers are also available to order.
