“Incredible place!”
Reviewed 3 February 2017

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.

Room Tip: The Jabulani's room is wonderful! If necessary there is a great room for 6 peoples that accommod...

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 rooms. The staff if very flexible to you timing and needs. The rooms are huge and come with private pool which was a very nice temperature. The safari experience was unique. We found the game viewing to be a little better at Ngala, but Jabulani had the elephant experience and endangered species center provide very unique experience. The two safaris are great compliments to each other and very glad we did both.

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 with us each day in the planning. We were able to go on a game drive one day, the endangered species center, and elephant interaction another day. We relaxed one afternoon in our beautiful room while cooling off in our private awesome little pool. In addition we were able to take a 1.5 hour hike with the rangers. Overall it was a great experience. They are there for you, and you will get out as much as you want out of the experience.

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, with stunning rooms.
If you stay here your get the run of the whole reserve, whereas the other lodges get assigned an area in which they have to remain.
It's an elephant sanctuary too, so lots of chances to interact with them.
I feel very privileged to have stayed here.

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
