The reserve is very beautiful and the game viewing was excellent and varied. the wild elephant experience as well as the lodge elephant experience were very special.

I had a wonderful honeymoon stay at Camp Jabulani. The staff was kind and helpful, the guide was terrific, and the accommodations were terrific. We saw a terrific diversity of wildlife, had an incredible experience riding the elephants (too bad they are being forced to discontinue the practice as it is really incredible) and the logistics were smooth as could...

Probably for me one of the greatest and most memorable experiences of my life and it's all thanks to Camp Jabulani. From the pick-up at the airport by our assigned Rangers Craig and Lisa to the very tearful and sad farewell it was five days of absolute pleasure and perfection. There is nothing Camp Jabulani could have done better. The...

What a extra-ordinary experience. Everything was top notch, the staff very friendly and competent, delicious food and the sun downer stop during the game drive exceptional. All the meals are plated, guests choose from a small menu every day. Their attention to detail in all areas are remarkable. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful time at Camp Jabulani. Our ranger Dean was fabulous! His wealth of knowledge from the smallest insects to plants and of course the Big Five is truly amazing. Candice in the spa has magic hands and our waiter Issac was very attentive to our needs. Everyone made us feel welcome and right at home. Our room...

It was a incredible experience staying at Camp Jabulani. Everything was perfect! Congratulations for this perfect place! I hope we can return as soon as possible. I fell in love with the Mambo. This little and sweet elephant is a great representative of Camp Jabulani.

Camp Jabulani was the last stop on our honeymoon and the second safari. The other safari was Ngala. The rooms and service were the best out of all our stops. Everything was very personalized, the chef comes out before each meal to take order. The food was superb and the setting was pretty intimate as there are only 5 other...

Camp Jabulani was an amazing place that really catered to what you wanted to do. This was our 3rd lodge that we stayed at on our trip, and our ranger really made sure we got to do what we wanted to and when we wanted to. Other lodges had set schedules of meals, game drives, activities and our ranger worked...

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,...

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

“The bathroom is in the room with fabulous inside out shower, however, it is not private. Although travelers need to be aware of this, it is NOT a deal breaker at all. The private plunge pools are fabulous.”
