Meet the team at Jamala Madikwe

Lazarus Boikie Nokane or as he is affectionately known by all the Jamala-ian’s……Lazzie.

Lazzie has worked as a professional Ranger/Guide at Jamala Madikwe since 2010. Humble, gentle and compassionate few guides could fit the Jamala spirit better than this legend. He was born in Madikwe Game Reserve on an old farm called Leeuhoek “Lioncorner” near Ambush Alley and holds an incredible amount of knowledge about the land and it’s inhabitants. When Laz is in tune with the bush his intuition and ability to quietly track game will take you’re breath away. (Image by guests Lara Cowtan and Stuart Vincent)

  • Fresh, seasonal and local inspired cuisine from the Jamala team. 
The biggest challenge for Safari lodges is sourcing of quality produce in remote locations. Growing food has its own set of problems considering the local wildlife and often limited water. This however does not stop us from relentlessly searching and striving to produce remarkable African cuisine that pushes the boundaries of Southern African food.
