I was expecting a great experience but Camp Jubulani exceeded my expectations. Our four days were an absolutely amazing experience. We stayed in the Zindoga Villa which allowed us Zandri (sp?) as our personal chef and Obert as our butler. Both were wonderful. More than accommodating...always pleasant and helpful, and Zandri prepared amazing meals. Something I would expect at a... More

The property has a wonderful location where you can see wild life surrounding you. Our ranger Andre was outstanding and took us in three drives where we saw a multitude of local... More

Stayed here for 4 days with my partner and son (aged 11) and it was a wonderful experience from start to finish. Ryan was our guide and he was very knowledgeable and knew where all the big 5 hung out so we got to see them all. The accommodation is very well presented and is everything you would come to...

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
