Jatinga, White River

Colonial charm with 5 star luxury 

Jatinga Country Lodge is renowned for its charm, tranquillity and fine dining. The lodge, which boasts a 5-star grading from the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa, has 13 Superior rooms and four magnificent Luxury suites all of which are decorated in different styles – Victorian, Colonial, Provencal, French Country, African Colonial and English Country. Each room offers a unique experience that ensures guests will take away a special Jatinga memory. Be it the outdoor showers, set in secluded and private gardens planted with flowers and rosemary bushes, that surprise and delight guests when checking into one of the Victorian rooms, or one of the incredible solid rock – style baths that beg to be filled with bubbles found in the Provencal rooms or the quaint hand-made basins in the French Country rooms – – the rooms at Jatinga are an experience in themselves. The original 1920s homestead,  the lodge’s main building, houses the lounge area (with both the original fireplaces still intact) with a covered, colonial-style veranda running along the length of the lounge. Here guests can sit back, relax and take in the beauty and tranquillity of the magnificent gardens. The veranda has become the place to enjoy a coffee and port after dinner while the frogs and crickets compete in their nightly serenade. In the restaurant you can experience fine dining. The lush sub-tropical gardens at Jatinga have been carefully nurtured and beckon guests to wander along the emerald green lawns between masses of flowering azaleas and fragrantly scented lavender bushes. All garden paths at Jatinga eventually lead down to the river (the White River runs through the bottom of the estate) where you can enjoy wonderful views from the deck.
