After a warm welcome by Carl and a nice cocktail we discovered our suite nestled in the trees. Everything was beautiful from the viewing deck and the pool to the inside of the suite (check the pictures!). We then headed for lunch where we met the chef and the staff and enjoyed the first of many tasty menus.
The elephant back safaris were a thrill: seated on Sebakwe, a 30 years old & 3 meters elephant! At night it was even more magic, under the stars. We learned a lot about those social animals.
The gamedrives with our ranger Reineke were very exciting too. He always took on his time to teach us about the secret of the bush.
We visited the HOESC were we were lucky enough to cuddle some baby cheetas!
Jabulani Camp is really a must-do in SA. We saw a lot of animals and enjoyed it.
Anyway I would recommend to do another safari as well in the Kruger Park as there is a fence around Jabulani and sometimes during the night gamedrive you can see it and it loose a bit of magic. Kruger park is so big that you can think you're really in the wild.
- 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 close-up and personal elephant interaction experience, 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
