Camp Jabulani offers the ultimate in luxurious style, friendly service and superb cuisine. But at the heart of this five-star operation lies a cause far greater than its tangible elements. Jabulani was primarily built to accommodate and care for a dozen rescued elephants in need of a home. This elephant sanctuary come luxury camp was envisioned by wildlife champion, Lente Roode, the founding owner of the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre, near Kruger Park.
The intimate camp setting was designed to be open-plan, blending in with its bush environment inside Kapama Game Reserve. The main safari camp features lounge and dining room areas, an open-sided spa, a gym and a tree sheltered wooden deck with views over a riverbed.
Each of the six ultra-luxury suites has its own viewing deck and private plunge pool. These secluded suites feature a free-standing feature bathtub made of stone, his and her washbasins, a discrete WC and a glass-walled outdoor shower that looks out over the bush. The spacious suites also have a private lounge area fitted with a fireplace. The luxurious, all-new Zindoga Villa is ideally suited to families, small groups or those seeking complete privacy and exclusivity. One of the top highlights of any stay at Camp Jabulani is the chance to ride the resident elephants under the guidance of experienced handlers. Other activities on offer include guided game drives conducted in open 4x4 safari vehicles, clay pigeon shooting and excursions to the nearby Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre. Alternatively guests can simply unwind at the camp or enjoy pampering treatments at the ambient Bush Spa.
Experience unrivalled tranquility on early morning hot-air balloon rides (available at extra cost), for an unforgettable bush adventure of game viewing from above.
