My wife and I stayed at Kapama River Lodge in October and went on a elephant safari and were lucky enough to ride on Jabulani himself. What an awesome amazing elephant he is. We would recommend a vacation here and also throw in Cape Town for an unforgettable vacation.

We were very privileged to stay in Camp Jabulani for three nights in January 2016. This was our 6th and final safari lodge of our 17 night vacation in the Limpopo area of South Africa.We have previously toured Namibia and the Garden Route from Capetown to Port Elizabeth.Without doubt, we can honestly say this was our best ever safari and...

We stayed in Camp Jabulani at the beginning of December. It was the most marvelous 3 1/2 days that we have ever spent anywhere. Craig, our ranger, picked us up at the airport and told us we were going to take a "short" drive thru a nature reserve to get to the camp. During this "short" drive of about 30... More

From the staff, to the accommodations, the food and drinks, this is truly a five star resort. But what really makes this place special is just how much they really care. Not just about making sure that the humans in their care have the very best vacation experience of your life, but also making sure that the animals are allowed... More

Camp Jabulani was the best holiday I have ever been on. I cannot fault my stay. The food was delicious (I am a teenager and am very fussy), the service was amazing everyone was so kind, warm and helpful and the butlers, Shadrick and Obert were so smiley, they really added to the experience. My ranger, Ryan was extremely knowledgable.... More

We´ve stayed at Jabulani in January 2015 for 2 nights (MalaMala&Camp Jabulani package). Our experience was life changing and so intense, that even 11 months later, we´re still talking about it every single day! The room is not only room, but the most luxurious and private(!) get away in the bush you could think of, with a big master bed... More

I cannot stress enough how pleased we were with Camp Jabulani. The first thing that comes to mind is the incredible staff (especially our ranger Kevin), but all the rest the food, the lodging, the game drive. Incredible.

We stayed at Jabulani for four nights at the start of our African adventure and it was a great experience from start to finish. We arrived at the tiny Hoedspruit airport on a little turboprop plane and were met by our ranger Ryan who looked after us throughout. The airport is located right on the edge on the Kapama reserve...

Camp Jabulani is highly luxurious as one would expect from a Relais and Chateau Hotel. Our lodge was fabulous with a great view over the river bed and its own small plunge pool. The proportion of trackers to guests meant that we had our own guide for most of the visit (a lovely and informative young lady called Chané) and... More
