JIKELEZA LODGE is run by Robert and Marianah, both intrepid explorers of Southern Africa and veteran travelers. They opened this lodge to share their knowledge and love for this country with others and to maintain contact with other travelers. It is designed by travelers for travelers, to meet in a home away from home atmosphere. The hostel has a reputation for making you feel welcome and is enthusiastically run by the owners, their managers and staff.
The atmosphere is laid back. You'll find JIKELEZA LODGE safe clean and comfortable offering a true African experience and South African hospitality. "Miracles Happen here", may just be true for you. One of the older buildings in the Central area with the atmospheric charm of rich, warm, gleaming wood floors, windows and doors.
JIKELEZA LODGE offers you a variety of accommodation. There are single rooms, double rooms (Double bed) and twin rooms (2 single beds), 3, 4 and 5 bed family/group rooms, dorms and camping. Their dorms only have a maximum of 7 beds and at times are smaller. The dorms are mixed, both male and female, and may not be suitable for some local holiday makers who are not conversant with traveling etiquette. The kitchen is fully fitted so that you can whip up a quick meal or cook up a storm. The owners are fanatical about cleanliness and all the staff are friendly and go out of their way to help you.
