Jabulani Safari

Jabulani, a soulful safari Experience! A 5-star luxury lodge located in Kapama Private Game Reserve in Kruger National Park, where your experience is so much more than just game drives and a high thread count - it’s about the feeling it evokes in you, the memory that remains ingrained in your heart long after you’ve returned home. Jabulani is a place to indulge your every sense, a place to experience amazing wildlife, reconnect with nature and enjoy superb cuisine.

Your dedicated Jabulani ranger will ensure that your safari experience is tailor-made to your personal preference, whether laid back and relaxed or filled with game viewing and other activities. During your stay you will learn about the inspiring journey that began with a herd of elephants being rescued nearly twenty years ago. The devoted elephant caretakers share insightful stories of their life journeys with the Jabulani herd, whilst you have opportunity to respectfully observe the elephants during their daily routines – while they enjoy their midday swim, forage in the wild and amble past the dam at sunset to their homestead before nightfall. The style and ambience of Jabulani resonate with that of a classic safari lodge, refined with refined touches. The main area features an elegant dining room and lounge that lead to an outside wooden deck lying beneath the shade of Leadwood trees – the ideal setting to enjoy an alfresco lunch while overlooking the waterhole.

Room Information

The Suites
Designed with pure relaxation and intimacy in mind, the Jabulani suites are as discrete in positioning as they are lavished in detail. Each suite opens up to a private oasis set in the African bush. A crystal blue plunge pool with views over the riverbed below is complemented by a generous wooden deck, purely for your leisurely pleasure.

Two-Bedroom Villa
This is your escape with friends or family, in a home to make your own, a home in the African wilderness. Our Two-Bedroom Villa welcomes up to four guests, with two spacious suites to accompany two guests sharing. Each suite is designed to inspire relaxation and intimacy, with the raw sounds and sights of safari life merging with comfort at every touch.

Zindoga Villa
Zindoga Villa brings absolute exclusivity to one of South Africa’s finest game lodges. A private entrance leads you to a secluded 700 m2 three-bedroom grand villa that reflects the splendid elegance of the Jabulani offering. A dedicated team of staff consisting of a private chef, butler and ranger will make your Zindoga Villa experience truly unforgettable.

Things To Do

Going on safari is all about experiences. You want moments, not things. And so, the carefully compiled safari experiences will suit any kind of traveler. From early morning and sunset safari drives to meeting Jabulani elephant herds, helicopter flips, and hot air balloon rides – you’ll have something to take your breath away.

Included during your stay are twice-daily morning and evening game drives, designed to coincide with the times of day that the wildlife is most active. You are taken out into the bush on an open, custom-built safari vehicle, with experienced and knowledgeable rangers at the helm.

Protecting the gentle giants was one of Jabulani’s founding principles. Jabulani was born out of the need to help and care for a rescued elephant herd nearly 20 years ago. Today, Jabulani continues this by sharing the experience with guests which helps to conserve this magical species, the African Elephant.
