After a long flight from Phoenix AZ with an overnight stay in a Johannesburg cheap airport hotel, our excitement for our first trip to South Africa had been tempered. But when we arrived at Camp Jabulani our excitement returned full force. The staff did everything right - let us see our room, have lunch immediately, told us about all the opportunities as part of the conversation to determine what we liked to do and then they provided it seamlessly and with pleasure. The rooms are luxurious, the lobby is warm and welcoming, the chef, wait staff and concierge were friendly yet unobtrusive. Our personal guide, Hein, was spectacular but the other guests felt the same way about their guide! And if you feel a special connection to elephants, do NOT miss the elephant back safari. We did it at night and there were tears of thankfulness in my eyes during the trip. Nothing compares to it. Go! Enjoy!
- 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
