Review of Jabulani Safari
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 14 May 2024
This trip to Jabulani exceeded my hopes for a first-time trip to Africa! There are less expensive ways to stay in this area, but you will never get the outstanding immersive experience of Jabulani; its rustic elegance, the staff who pamper you at every turn and the private game drives and elephant interactions are what put the Jabulani experience in the 5 star category. I stayed here by myself for 10 days and the staff were so welcoming and attentive I never once felt alone or awkward. Now I'm trying to figure out when I can get back.

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
