Jabulani Safari 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 in the scenic Mpumalanga region). safari lodges South Africa
With a Relais & Chateaux accreditation, this lodge is guaranteed to offer first class accommodation, cuisine, facilities and personalised service.
This luxurious lodge has only six suites – never more than 12 guests, while the exclusive Zindoga Villa is ideally suited to the family traveller, or the client who prefers a more private, luxury experience.
The rich textures of organic elements create a harmonious and pleasing balance between ‘designer’ and ‘authentic’ – grass-pressed mud walls, stone floors and thatched roofs are but some of the natural features guests may expect to find.
An open flow of light and air allow for a communion with the African bush without forsaking optimum comfort. Rich woods, crystal glasses and silver service somehow seamlessly blend into an experience of genuine hospitality and sensory indulgence.
This standout among safari lodges South Africa 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 the 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. To indulge, spoil, pamper and entertain. But most importantly – to share with them the story and the experience of the elephants.
Jabulani’s classic and elegant interiors seamlessly blend with the rugged African bushveld, providing a warmth and comfort that makes our guests feel completely at home.
- An introduction to the Jabulani herd and the grooms who have taken care of the elephants over the years
- 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
- Photographic opportunities in close proximity with the elephants, in the company of their grooms
- Game drives and guided bush walks on the Kapama Big 5 Reserve, getting close to the elephant herd to observe them in the wild
Please note: As the nature of the Elephant Experience will be determined by the unpredictable free-ranging movement of the elephant herd, there will be a degree of flexibility in the itinerary.
