The exclusive Camp Jabulani is situated on the Kapama Private Game Reserve in the Greater Kruger Park. Camp Jabulani is known for its unique elephant interaction – an exciting and novel way of learning about one of the most majestic wild animals. Game viewing can also be enjoyed in open safari vehicles on morning and afternoon game drives and also on guided bush walks.
Camp Jabulani is truly luxurious – an open-plan dining room and lounge merge with the wooden deck which lies in the shade of a gigantic leadwood tree. An impressive hanging bridge connects these opulent living areas with the suites which flank the river bed. The main area also includes an impressive wine cellar, which doubles as a private dining room on request as well as an inviting shop full of beautiful African arts and crafts.
The six spacious suites are very luxurious and secluded. Massive wooden sliding doors open into the spacious interior which is a pure translation of style, comfort and elegance. Each has its own private deck with plunge pool, fireplace and sitting area, well-stocked private bar and air-conditioning. The open plan bathroom includes a large Victorian bath, double vanity and stunning glass-enclosed shower as well as separate toilet. Facilities include telephone, mini bar stocked with your choice of drinks, tea/coffee facilities, air conditioning, fan and in-room safe.
One child can be accommodated in the suites on a sleigh bed which doubles as a day bed. Please note that the open plan bathroom may not suit everyone. Close to the suites is a Therapy Lapa and a Bush Gym.
Pattern of Activities at Camp Jabulani
You normally arrive at Camp Jabulani around lunch time. After lunch you meet the elephants for a briefing and interaction with elephants at the sundowners in the bush. After the sundowners, you can take a short game drive before dinner. Day two starts with a wake up call followed by a morning elephant interaction or a game drive or a game walk, depending on what you feel like doing. After breakfast there is a specialized tour of the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre near Kapama, which includes the opportunity to interact with the cheetahs. Lunch is followed by an afternoon at leisure and use can be made of the gym, spa and sauna. You then head out on a game drive with informal sundowners.
