Camp Jabulani is the place to stay when visiting this area. It is very comfortable and the staff are all terrific. The only comment I have is that the dinner portions are about 1/3rd too small. I make this comment as it was the only thing that could be improved upon. The food quality was the very best, but there...

It is with a heavy heart that I write this review. Although Camp Jabulani is probably the most beautiful and intimate lodge I have ever visited, with an amazing team I felt that our guide Michael was lacking. Everything about our safari was fake. We would drive around casually enjoying nature and then you could hear Michael shouting over the...

Absolutely beautiful! We really couldn't ask for better. Service and rooms were great! Each room has it's own soaker pool which I got a lot of use out of during the afternoons after lunch and before the evening game drive. It was fun sitting in there and playing peek a boo with the Vervet Monkeys in the trees next to...

It was a fantastic experience in this magical place! We loved everything: service impeccable, amazing food and very romantic place. During the safari we had an impeccable service, the ranger had a lot of experience and wisdom. We feel very safe. We had an unforgettable honeymoon.

A life-long dream for my aging father and I. The staff was WONDERFUL, and our guide Andre was brilliant, personal and knowlegeable. They even helped my my dad's mobility issues. I just can't say enough good things.

Camp Jabulani is unique! It provides the ultimate experience with elephants, its rangers provide the perfect safari within the game reserve, the catering staff provide exceptional meals, the level of luxury which exists throughout the resort is second to none and probably cannot be found anywhere else.

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
