A stunning property just outside Kruger Park with top class personal service.

Rooms were open-plan and extremely spacious, homely and very well kept. The main reception/ dining area is beautifully decorated, as are...

The staff and the services provided as well as the rooms made this hotel one of the best I have visited. The reserve is great to see animals and our ranger, named Craig, made our experience in the safari really memorable

However all staff were absolutely amazing and could not do enough to make this a very special...

What an experience!!! The Camp, staff, food, animals, etc were amazing. I have been to three large parks in Tanzania and never got a close to the animals as I did with our guide. The staff was so amazing I commented to our host that they must have gone through customer service training with Ritz Carlton. Would absolutely recommend Camp...

Four friends went on safari for the first time. Our first experience was landing in Hoedspruit and being greeted by a tiny female in a ranger outfit. Little did we know that Chane Jacobs was going to give us 2 days in the bush we would never forget. She was so knowledgable she answered EVERY question our inquisitive group had,...

We are so happy for coming to this wonderful place at the Kapama reserve. We have only been pampered the whole time we have been here.

Having never been on safari we didn't know what to expect, but Camp Jabulani delivered beyond our expectations. The staff is fantastic, the rooms are beautiful, and the close interactions you can have with elephants and cheetah are amazing.

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.”
