The staff was wonderful, food was delicious, game drives were amazing (we saw all of the big 5) thanks to Andre and the villa was like staying in a palace! Everyone treated us like royalty. We had the time of our lives!

What a truly wonderful place. Firstly, the safaris were excellent, our guide, Lisa, was very knowledgeable and friendly, nothing was too much trouble for her. Whilst it is a fenced reserve, which amongst other things, protects the animals against poachers, the animals, as you would expect, are truly wild. The guides use radios to try to home in on animal...

From the moment we were met at the airport we felt truly pampered. The staff were very attentive and took care of every aspect of the experience. Every meal was first class and the "sundowners" memorable. The lodge and suites were stylish and extremely comfortable. Our guide for the game drives was very knowledgeable and genuinely interested in the preservation...

We left Camp Jabulani this afternoon after having had the three best nights of our lives. We had done a ton of research on game lodges since it was the climax of our honeymoon trip, and Camp Jabulani exceeded our expectations in every way. The property is outstanding. Close to the airport, on a private reserve with amazing game viewing....

Our family's 3 night stay in the Villa was the last destination on our 11 day trip to Victoria Falls, Cape Town, Sabi Sabi and Kapama South Africa. It was a perfect ending to our trip in that all 7 of us were together in the Zindoga Villa that had two major bedrooms and a third bedroom that enabled togetherness...

Our experience at Camp Jabulani was well above our expectations. From the food, staff, and amass amounts of beauty surrounding the Camp, we could not ask for more. This was our highlight of our South Africa trip and would recommend to anybody wanted a first class experience of the bush!

Our ranger, Craig, affectionately called us elephant magnets. We saw elephant dusting, swimming, playing, looking after their young. If you love elephant and can sit and watch them for ages, Camp Jabulani affords you the luxury to do so. Everything is about what you, as a guest, wishes. It is luxury to the max. Service is impeccable, food excellent, the...

I had a wonderful honeymoon stay at Camp Jabulani. The staff was kind and helpful, the guide was terrific, and the accommodations were terrific. We saw a terrific diversity of wildlife, had an incredible experience riding the elephants (too bad they are being forced to discontinue the practice as it is really incredible) and the logistics were smooth as could...

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

“The bathroom is in the room with fabulous inside out shower, however, it is not private. Although travelers need to be aware of this, it is NOT a deal breaker at all. The private plunge pools are fabulous.”
