Camp Jabulani Accommodation

Camp Jabulani is built along the banks of a seasonal stream under the protective shade of impressive leadwood trees.

Each of the six luxury suites is remote and private, and boasts a fire-place with separate lounge area, a private plunge pool, massive bath-tub, and outside, glass-enclosed shower. Suites are also equipped with mini-bar, safe, hairdryer and electric blanket. There is also 24 hour temperature control and overhead ceiling fan. You also have a dedicated butler. At night cosy lighting, a blazing fire and a welcoming bed mark the end to a perfect day.

Meals at Camp Jabulani are an experience. A fusion of tastes and ingredients engage the palate, as course after course materialise from the magicians in the kitchen. Only fresh ingredients are used in each of the dishes prepared. Home baked muffins and tea time treats, as well as sun downer snacks are created each day. In addition, there is a good selection of both red and white wines proudly produced in the rich and unique wine-lands of the Cape.

The main focus is, of course, the elephants – and nothing beats your first introduction to these incredible animals. You have an informative orientation to each of the elephants, learning about each personality. Each guest is paired with an elephant, and the safari begins. This has to be the ultimate African experience. View tree tops, birds nests, and giraffes almost face to face. Sail high above the bush veldt and feel part of the environment.

In addition to its wealth of biological diversity, there is something else that many visitors soon discover - something they commonly say is equally impressive, and of enormous value. In Kings Camp there is an atmosphere of undisturbed nature, of true wilderness, which is difficult to define and describe, but can readily be perceived by the discerning traveller in those rare places where it can still be encountered.

The afternoon safari is conducted just before sunset, and the elephants converge on the lantern-lit dinner venue. Camp Jabulani offers night safari on elephant back, a truly unique experience. You even have the chance to ‘tuck in’ the elephants at their stables for the evening, a chance too, of witnessing first hand the mutual respect and genuine fondness between the elephants and their tenders. In summer, you get to witness the fun of the mid-day ‘bath’ in a dam – a wonderful experience.

In addition to the Elephant safaris you are also able to join experienced rangers in open safari vehicles as you look for the Big 5, and the smaller (but no less significant) creatures that are part of the environment. Identify the call of a bird; follow the bark of a baboon or the roar of a lion in the midst of their natural environment.

You will also be able to visit the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre, which has established itself as one of the leading private research and breeding facilities for endangered species in the country. The Centre places particular emphasis on the breeding and maintenance of cheetah in captivity. Visitors are able to see the projects undertaken by the centre’s veterinary staff who operate an animal hospital where injured or abandoned animals are cared for and eventually released back into the wild.

For some pampering and relaxation, there is the open-air Spa. Products are manufactured from top quality base and essential oils. Only the finest ingredients are used, including indigenous fynbos essential oils – such as Cape Kapok bush (also called Cape Chamomile) and Snowbush. The massage butters are preserved with an organic preservative. Natural anti-oxidants are also added.
