The hotel

An utterly exclusive lodge, you’ll share this six room Relais & Chateaux retreat with just a handful of other guests – and 15 rescued elephants. The orphaned elephants sleep in paddocks before waking to roam across Kapama Private Game Reserve, but you get to experience unadulterated luxury in your elegant safari suite, with its private mini-plunge pool indulging you with views over the bush and dusty riverbed. Promising personalised experiences, Camp Jabulani lets you discover the reserve your way, whether that’s taking complimentary game-drives, lazing in a waterhole-edge hammock, dining at your leisure, or spending time with the camp’s adopted elephants, with encounters only available for Camp Jabulani guests.

... I’ve been on 3 safaris in my time and this one has trumped them all by the biggest margin you could think possible. There is no other place to go to see wild animals and no other place to stay. I’ve akways said I’d never revisit the same place as there are so many places to visit. Camp Jabulani has changed my mind. I’ll be going there again.
