      Interact with Some of the Biggest Personalities in Africa

      Camp Jabulani is a family-owned and managed private luxury safari lodge located within the private Kapama Game Reserve in Hoedspruit, South Africa (in close proximity to the Kruger National Park, and scenic Mpumalanga region). Its most notable feature is the herd of trained African elephants which were rescued by the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre. Visitors can experience the extraordinary impact of interacting personally with the mammoth animals. Guests will have an introduction to the Camp Jabulani herd and the grooms who have taken care of the elephants over the years and the opportunity to watch the elephants in their natural habitat during the day or at their stables early morning/ late afternoon and into the evening. Guests will have photographic opportunities in close proximity with the elephants, in the company of their grooms. While on game drives and guided bush walks on the Kapama Big 5 Reserve, guests will be able to observe the elephant herd in the wild. This luxurious camp has only 6 suites - never more than 12 guests, while the exclusive Zindoga Villa is suited to the family traveler, or the client who prefers the more exclusive experience. The camp is built along the bank of a seasonal stream. An open-plan dining room and lounge merge with the wooden deck which lies in the shade of gigantic leadwood trees (around which the main facility was constructed). An impressive suspension bridge connects these living areas with the suites which lie scattered beyond the river bed. The sole objective of the team of professionally skilled and personable staff is to meet the needs of their valued guests, too indulge, spoil, pamper and entertain. But most importantly – the staff is there to share the story and the experience of the elephants. Some of Camp Jabulani's notable offerings include safari drives in the Big Five private Kapama Reserve, visits to the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre and indulgent treatments in the outdoor Therapy Lapa, and gastronomic delights at the hands of the masterful culinary team. Hot air balloon excursions over the reserve are available at an extra charge.
