We had an incredible experience at Camp Jabulani. I could rave about the beautiful accommodations but I would rather save my praise for the amazing staff that we were sad to say goodbye to. They felt like family. From our incredibly charming and knowledgeable guide Craig, to the talented Chef Johan who got my picky eater son to try Springbok,... More

I have never been treated this way in my life ... and I mean that in the most positive way! The service here is incredible.

Camp Jabulani stands out among the many South African safari lodges with its dedication to a herd of rescued elephants that are pampered in every way and used to provide elephant-back game viewing drives in a very humane way. In addition to the usual twice-daily game drives Camp Jubilani also provides exquisite gourmet meals in a Victorian setting.

I travel as a Safari Director and go to too many places to have time to review. This time however I make an exception as Camp Jabulani is simply sensational because of one factor - the team. They went above and beyond to make the guests I was escorting special. From personalizing menus to suit three generations in one family... More

I stayed at Camp Jabulani with my Husband and teenage daughter from July 4th to July 7th and it was wonderful. Even though it is the dry winter season we saw many animals including all of the Big 5. Our Ranger Ruan was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about every animal, bird and plant. Chef Johan is a talented Chef... More

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
