Review of Jabulani Safari
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 26 Apr 2024
Jabulani is my most favourite place to visit. The service you receive is exceptional and all staff from A - Z are excellent. This is definitely a place everybody need to visit once in their life. It is absolutely beautiful and taking care of you and the the friends / family are of high priority.

This was our first time in Africa and on a safari. We were not sure what to expect but if possible, we would give Jabulani a 10-star rating. Within 48 hours we had seen the Big 5 of Africa. Our guide Jeffery, a guide of 18 years taught us so much. When on a safari you never know what you might see but every day we were on the lookout for "any creatures with a heartbeat"- Jeffery delivered! Upon our 2 daily safari returns we were greeted by our personal butler Obert, who attended to every detail. After a cool fresh towel Obert had us at our dining table for an exquisite gourmet 5-star meal. For every meal the chef would come to our table and answer any questions about the daily menu.
Any special dining request was always met with a "I will do my best to meet your needs" - our needs were met every time.
Jabulani staff and service are superior. We are telling all friends and family that is the safari experience of a lifetime! We cannot wait to go back.

An experience that cannot be rated in words, that must be experienced.
The most magical bush experience I have ever had in 36 consecutive years of visiting the Kruger National Park and surrounds.
Jabulani is a top of the bucket list experience

From start to finish, our Jabulani safari experience was perfect. Reece, our ranger, was not only professional and knowledgeable but also incredibly friendly, always striving to provide us with the best views while remaining very calm during more adventurous encounters.

Alex's creative culinary skills and respect for dietary restrictions added a delicious touch to our stay, while Butler Songs' personal attention and amazingly positive attitude made us feel truly pampered. The luxurious cottages and laid-back vibe only enhanced the overall ambiance.

Truly an unforgettable stay.

This was my husband and I's first safari experience and Jabulani set the bar SO high nothing will ever top it! Probably our most amazing hotel experience to date and we've been to some amazing renowned properties. From the second you arrive at the HDS airport your journey of pure luxury begins. The personal attention you get is more than we ever expected or have received!
The suite- IS AMAZING! our private pool overlooking the river bed with animals crossin, i wish we could have spent even more time in it. We'd spend every afternoon relaxing and sunning ourselves on the pool deck, but not with binoculars and camera ready for action!
The safaris are just perfect, 2 couples max which really allows you to embrace the moments and see everything.The jeep is super comfortable and have on board anything you could need ( water, sunscreen bug spray etc) They start early although because they cater to your every need we requested a little later start to get some extra sleep one morning. Reece was our ranger and he was so knowledgeable about the wildlife and the surroundings we felt like we learned so much. We saw ALL of the animals up close and personal! The sundowners at every safari are just perfect but the "sundowner experience" is a memory that will live with us forever. It happened on our first night and the sunset was more than we could have ever hoped for (think brightest orange/red sky that you only see in pictures) than you add the elephants walking by and splashing in the watering hole while you're sipping you G&T-magical!!!
The FOOD is carefully planned and executed by the chefs and plentiful- too much actually! the available wine is impressive and the G&T are to perfection! You will not leave hungry and they are proud of that!
The Elephant experience is a MUST. You get to feed and hang out with 3 of the Herd elephant bulls and to live in the moment with these giant animals is also a memory that will last forever- and we got the best pictures!!!
I could go on and on- basically everything is AMAZING and you should no hesitate to be impressed by the entire Jabulani staff. I hated to leave but already dream of going back!

Room tip: get a suite it is amazing! sundowner and elephant experiences are a MUST

Nothing could have prepared me for how incredible Jabulani is. From the moment you are picked up to the moment you are (reluctantly) taken back to the airport the staff make you feel geniunely cared for and welcome. Every little detail seems to have been chosen with love, and this extends to the way you are treated throughout. And then of course there is the incredible safari, the knowledgeable rangers whos skill at finding the animals is remarkable. The special touches that are added to each excursion would have been more than enough but then you also have the elephant experience. meeting elephants in person, and not just for a few minutes. You get to spend quality time with them and see them again also throughout their day so that they become part of your safari family too. There are too many special touches to list here, but just a few: The cuisine and the chef, the stunning environment that has been built in total sympathy within the environment so much so that you can enjoy seeing animals from your room. The way that just by being there you know you are helping protect the herd. The friendliness of every person you meet. Just go! I promise you will not regret it.
