This is a beautiful and luxurious lodge - really out of a movie - and all I can say is if you go to South Africa - this lodge warrants a visit. It is beyond elegant as it is appointed with antiques and other luxuries - Royalty does visit. The Elephants are beautiful - there is a daily ride on...

Absolutely the best safari expeience I had! Relais & Chateaux made an excellent choice by including Camp Jabulani in their portfolio! The food, staff, elephants, Endangered Species centre contibuted to a soul enriching experience! I would definately return, but would love to spend more time in the beautiful appointed suites! Will return for a longer period next time!

Wonderfull, unbelievable...far exceeding our expectations. I have been to over 30 lodges throughout Africa and couldn't think of a better place to have our wedding. As with other reviews, the lodge is beautiful and the rooms exceptionally large and well laid out. But what distinguished the lodge for us were the people and how they made our wedding that much...

I stayed at Camp Jabulani for 2 wonderful nights. The rooms are the height of luxury. There are only 6 suites total, each one is far enough away from the others so as to be completely out of sight, giving a feeling of total privacy. A plunge pool on my deck, a clear enclosed glass shower from which I could...

We have recently returned from South Africa and cannot stop raving about our new safari find. Camp Jabulani, near Kruger National Park, seamlessly combined beautifully appointed private suites, fantastic food, perfect service, and incredible wildlife viewing for a phenomenal safari experience. The suites were very large and absolutely beautiful. The furnishings were of the highest quality and created the perfect...

From the moment you arrive until the moment you leave jabulani - everything is perfect! The accomodation is so luxurious you would find it hard to believe that you are sleeping under canvas.

You could not stay at a better lodge. The staff, facilities and ameneties are the very best. We were there for three nights and wish we had arranged for more. Our cabin was overlooking the river bed. The linens are the finest. Everyone from the management to the housekeepers are always there to do nothing but take care of your...

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.”
