Add to my favourites
“A soulful safari experience with Africa’s gentle giants.”
Maître de Maison - Stefan du Toit
Located within a Big Five private game reserve in the Greater Kruger Park area, Jabulani, with its six superior suites and the exclusive Zindoga Villa, offers a unique opportunity for gracious living in a five-star luxury lodge. Each spacious and elegant suite is luxuriously furnished and features both a private deck and a plunge pool. Children are welcome at Jabulani from the age of six and at Zindoga Villa at any age. Jabulani is a place to indulge your every sense, a place to explore the African wild and reconnect with nature, experience amazing wildlife 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. Learn about our inspiring journey that began with a herd of elephants being rescued nearly twenty years ago. Our devoted elephant carers 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. Truly a soulful, insightful and unforgettable experience.

Unique in the world: Safari to spot the big five – lions, leopards, rhinos, buffaloes and elephants.

The Roode Family invites you to make their very special Lodge a home of your own. Sublime accommodations (in 6 superior suites and an exclusive family villa), gastronomic masterpieces, service excellence (with a near 100% Tripadvisor satisfaction score) and personalised itineraries translate into an utterly exclusive stay.

Our commitments

The story of the incredible rescue of a herd of elephants brings about the opening of an exceptional property.

Jalubani was born of the need to give a herd of rescued elephants a future, against the backdrop of the Drakensberg Mountains. Maître de Maison Adine Roode had the vision to build South Africa’s first dedicated elephant orphanage after the Jabulani elephant herd accepted the third elephant that lost its mother to human-elephant conflict. In late 2019 Hoedspruit Elephant Rehabilitation and Development (HERD) opened to help elephant calves to survive emotionally in a safe environment. Protecting species and traditions is at the heart of the lodge’s DNA.  People are also vital to the lodge’s vision, and Jabulani supports the empowerment and growth of the local community and economy through a women’s empowerment initiative, known as JabuLadies, supporting the local Mpisi School with nutrition programmes, skills development and sustainable gardening. Its architecture draws on local materials and ancestral methods, and the food marvellously combines free range game and fruit from local indigenous plants.
