Jabulani Safari HERO

Jabulani Safari

Discover Jabulani Safari

Jabulani Safari is a 5-star safari lodge situated in the private Kapama Game Reserve in the Kruger National Park. It is famous for its herd of rescued elephants. During your stay, you will have the opportunity to respectfully observe the elephants during their daily routines, including watching their midday swims and their foraging in the wild. But there are also plenty of other things to do, such as game drives, walking safaris, bird-watching, helicopter flights and hot air balloon rides.

At the lodge, there are 6 superior suites and 2 exclusive-use villas. Classic safari lodge in style, the main area features an outside wooden deck beneath the shade of Leadwood trees – the ideal spot to enjoy an alfresco lunch while overlooking the waterhole. The main area is connected to the suites via a suspension bridge over the riverbed. Each suite opens to a generous wooden deck with a plunge pool and views over the riverbed below. Enjoy fine cuisine in switched-up locations, from breakfast bush picnics and sundowner canapés, to star-lit private dinners or gatherings in the boma. The lodge also features a bush spa, gym, and sauna.
