Trip Advisor Reviews

The perfect family safari holiday

Jembisa is the ideal family bush holiday. We had the most brilliant time, saw lots of wonderful game and learnt so much about the African wildlife. I couldn't recommend Jembisa more for the perfect getaway for all ages - we had our 6 month baby with us too.

Magari Lodge - The place where dreams are made!

What an amazing place! Just recently returned from the Lodge where we celebrated the marriage of my son. The wedding was magical and we can’t thank everyone enough for making this trip a truly memorable and amazing experience from start to finish. Dreams are certainly made here! The accommodation is secluded set in the heart of the park with breath taking views. If you’re looking for that special venue for your special day then you will not be disappointed!

Christmas cracker

Brilliant fun! Whether relaxing by the pool or watching monkeys and mongooses in the garden, going on walks or bikes or quad bikes around the bush, we were so well looked after by a charming and very professional team. We were treated to a talk on the stars one evening, followed by dinner in the bush and sleeping under the stars. All our delicious meals were in different places and we went on game drives every evening, spotting the giraffes and zebra before enjoying drinks and watching the sun go down. A treat from beginning to end. I can't recommend going to Jembisa highly enough.
