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 return single file to their stables in the evenings. Truly a soulful, insightful and unforgettable experience.

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. Protecting species and traditions is at the heart of the Camp's DNA. This unusual property has practised its vision for endangered species, in partnership with the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre. People are as important as animals, and Jabulani supports the development of the local community through growing fruit, vegetables and herbs. Its architecture draws on local materials and ancestral methods, and the food marvellously combines free range game and fruit from local indigenous plants.
