Luxury Holidays at Camp Jabulani

Named after an orphan elephant from Zimbabwe, Jabulani, Camp Jabulani has evolved into a successful conservation story and follows one family's commitment to their environment and African wildlife. An established member of Relais & Châteaux, Camp Jabulani also offers refined, world-class cuisine and is closely connected to the nearby Endangered Species Centre. An inspirational camp, guests not only have the chance to see wildlife, but they can interact with and support it too. For the ultimate African safari experience, guests can observe rescued elephants up close, in addition to taking traditional game drives through the verdant bushveld. Privileged guests have the opportunity to see elephants with their grooms, visit their stables, witness them interact with their herd at the local watering hole; plus visit the nearby Endangered Species Centre.

With easy access from Johannesburg, superb dining and sensational sunsets, aided by the back-drop of the Drakensberg Mountains, guests are assured of many special photographic opportunities. The elegant guest suites are as welcoming as the friendly team - featuring butler service, mosquito-netted beds, outdoor glass showers and private plunge pools. There are many African touches to the décor, so guests receive an authentic 'sense of place' experience. For families or a group of friends, the exclusive, self-contained Zindoga Villa offers a spacious private haven, overlooking a dry riverbed. Featuring two Master Bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom, a third bedroom suitable for children, a wooden deck, private heated plunge pool and a dedicated team of staff, it provides a fantastic option for longer stays too.

Property Highlights:+
Safari

Forty kilometres from Kruger National Park, and close to the scenic areas of Mpumalanga and Limpopo Provinces, as a result of a successful animal relocation programme, Camp Jabulani supports a wide variety of game including elephant, buffalo, rhinoceros, giraffe, zebra, blue wildebeest, waterbuck, kudu and many other species of antelope with predators including lion, leopard, cheetah and the spotted hyena. Over 350 species of bird have been recorded.

Guests are welcome to visit the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre (about a 30 minute drive through the reserve in open safari vehicle) where guests can witness feeding sessions of various rare African vultures and get up close and personal with cheetahs.

Wildlife Encounters

Camp Jabulani is truly a remarkable place. More than just a lodge for safari-goers, Camp Jabulani is an elephant orphanage; a sanctuary for elephants who have previously been abandoned or wrongly treated. Jabulani (longest resident and credited for inspiring the camp's name) was orphaned just months after his birth and the workers rescued the young elephant with the intention of nursing him back to health and reintroducing him into the wild, but Jabulani had other plans and refused to leave - returning time and time again to resume his place amongst the humans. Without a doubt, the elephants steal the show at Camp Jabulani, these enormous, yet graceful mammals move almost without noise so other animals are rarely disturbed. In the evenings, guests can admire the elephants as they indulge in 'bathtime'.

Family

Families with children of any age can be accommodated in Zindoga Villa and the Team Tusker programme offers wildlife-themed activities for them. Child age restrictions may apply for children taking part in safari game drives. A babysitting service and children's menu are both available.

Romance

Situated in Kapama Game Reserve, Camp Jabulani epitomises the perfect romantic getaway. Exclusivity and privacy is assured, with luxurious suites providing plunge pools to glass-enclosed showers, with views of the spectacular bushveld. Make your honeymoon an unforgettable safari experience as you explore the local wildlife on thrilling game-drives and guided bush walks, interact with Camp Jabulani elephants, then retreat to the safari spa and unwind before settling down to a private romantic candlelit dinner.

Spa & Wellness

Camp Jabulani's idyllic outdoor Therapy Lapa is tucked away amongst dense African foliage, increasing guest interaction with African nature. Escape here for a variety of body treatments, clay wraps, skincare therapies and oil-based massages. The spa treatments all have charming, African-inspired names such as the Vervet Monkey Vitamin Facial and the Buffalo Muscle Treatment. A real favourite is the Hippopotamus Body Wrap; not as insulting as it sounds, the procedure has ache-reducing properties, ideal if you suffer from persistent muscle pains.
