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,...

This was our first safari and I can't imagine ever topping Camp Jabulani. The staff are incredible, food and service amazing, nothing was too much trouble. We were so lucky to see all the big five whilst there and can not praise our ranger Andre enough for his perseverance and knowledge of the reserve to enable us to do so....

This was a truly great experience. We were greeted like family upon arrival. The rooms and facilities were awesome. The elephant that were on the grounds were quite an experience. Afternoon and evening rides thru the bush were exciting. The guide was extremely knowledgable and made our time here great. We saw lions, elephants, rhinos, hippos,giraffes and many types of...

Wonderful food, spacious room, attentive staff, everything perfect. Best hotel I've ever stayed in. The location is good, in Kapama reserve, and you can see several animals already on arrival from the airport, which is very close (20 minutes).

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.”
