My daughter and I stayed at Camp Jabulani for two nights. It was incredibly welcoming from airline pick up to check in to breakfast lunch and dinner service. The property has a wonderful location where you can see wild life surrounding you. Our ranger Andre was outstanding and took us in three drives where we saw a multitude of local...

Stayed here for 4 days with my partner and son (aged 11) and it was a wonderful experience from start to finish.

We had an incredible experience at Camp Jabulani. I could rave about the beautiful accommodations but I would rather save my praise for the amazing staff that we were sad to say goodbye to. They felt like family. From our incredibly charming and knowledgeable guide Craig, to the talented Chef Johan who got my picky eater son to try Springbok,...

Camp Jabulani stands out among the many South African safari lodges with its dedication to a herd of rescued elephants that are pampered in every way and used to provide elephant-back game viewing drives in a very humane way. In addition to the usual twice-daily game drives Camp Jubilani also provides exquisite gourmet meals in a Victorian setting.

I travel as a Safari Director and go to too many places to have time to review. This time however I make an exception as Camp Jabulani is simply sensational because of one factor - the team. They went above and beyond to make the guests I was escorting special. From personalizing menus to suit three generations in one family...

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.”
