Safari Lodge in Kapama Private Game Reserve

Jabulani gets its name from an orphaned baby elephant that was brought to the owners for rehabilitation. The owners adopted the little one, along with other orphaned elephants from Zimbabwe, and the lodge soon became a sanctuary for them and other endangered species.

Despite being five-star, Relais & Châteaux-accredited luxury in the Kapama Private Game Reserve, the accommodation at Jabulani could pass almost unnoticed due to the domineering presence of the herd of elephants that calls Jabulani home. There are several activities on offer including game drives, bush walks and wellness treatments, each one a worthy and authentic experience. The Elephant Experience is going to be one of the highlights of your stay: Watch a herd in close proximity and learn more about their fascinating behaviour. Neither should you miss the visit to the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre, one of South Africa’s leading research and breeding facility for endangered animals.

Accommodation at Jabulani is opulent with rich and creamy silkiness astride raw textures and bold shapes. The six thatched Suites are palatial and secluded with open-plan en-suite bathrooms, an outdoor shower and a lounge area with a fireplace.
