This was a terrific experience which completed several holiday sections including Rovos Rail. The opportunity to volunteer at the endangered species centre was a high point. Jabulani will provide some lifetime memories. Thanks to all the team at Jabulani.

Very high end safari lodge with personal service. The days are tailored round your needs I.e no set times to go on drives, no need to eat dinner at 8pm and no group meals. The food is delicious and the chef consults with you individually at every meal to tailor to your requirements. The property is very small and intimate,...

This was our first safari and I can't imagine ever topping Camp Jabulani. The staff are incredible, food and service amazing, nothing was too much trouble. We were so lucky to see all the big five whilst there and can not praise our ranger Andre enough for his perseverance and knowledge of the reserve to enable us to do so....

Wonderful food, spacious room, attentive staff, everything perfect. Best hotel I've ever stayed in. The location is good, in Kapama reserve, and you can see several animals already on arrival from the airport, which is very close (20 minutes).

Charming place, great people and amazing safari. We saw all the BIG FIVE. The elefant ride with Jabulani was a unique experience. Our ranger took us to many different spots in Kapama area. The food and the wine list were reaaly good.

Camp Jabulani is the place to stay when visiting this area. It is very comfortable and the staff are all terrific. The only comment I have is that the dinner portions are about 1/3rd too small. I make this comment as it was the only thing that could be improved upon. The food quality was the very best, but there...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Camp Jabulani, a family-owned private safari lodge, is guaranteed to offer first class accommodation, cuisine, facilities and personalised service. But its most notable feature is the herd of trained African elephants, which were rescued by the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre. Over and above its once-in-a-lifetime elephant-back safaris, guests are also able to join experienced rangers in safari vehicles as they head out in search of The Big 5, and the smaller creatures that are part of an African Safari; visits to the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre or simple relaxation around the camp or in the "Bush Spa". The exclusive Zindoga Villa is ideally suited to family travellers, or the client who prefers a more private, luxury experience. ... more   less
