My family and I spent a remarkable 3 days at Camp Jabulani. Our experience with the staff, the accommodations and the elephants truly exceeded my every expectation. It was a memorable once in a lifetime experience.

I recently stayed at Camp Jabulani and it was a very luxurious safari experience. The food is delicious; every meal is unique. The rooms are beautiful, complete with a fireplace, private heated pool and everything else you might need. The reason we stayed here was the elephant safari, which was wonderful. The elephants are beautiful, and it was nice to... More

We had such a wonderful time during our two days at Camp Jabulani--we wouldn't have missed it for anything! The rangers were knowledgeable and went out of their way to provide information, serve as our hosts and drivers, and altogether made sure our time spent was unforgettable.

I was expecting a great experience but Camp Jubulani exceeded my expectations. Our four days were an absolutely amazing experience. We stayed in the Zindoga Villa which allowed us Zandri (sp?) as our personal chef and Obert as our butler. Both were wonderful. More than accommodating...always pleasant and helpful, and Zandri prepared amazing meals. Something I would expect at a... More

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
