Camp Jabulani, Kapama Private Game Reserve-Limpopo Province, South Africa

A Unique and Soulful Safari Experience

WELCOME TO CAMP JABULANI

Camp Jabulani’s classic and elegant interiors seamlessly blend with the rugged African bushveld, providing a warmth and comfort that makes our guests feel completely at home.

The rich textures of organic elements create a harmonious and pleasing balance between ‘designer’ and ‘authentic’ – grass-pressed mud walls, stone floors and thatched roofs are but some of the natural features guests may expect to find.

An open flow of light and air allow for a communion with the African bush without forsaking optimum comfort. Rich woods, crystal glasses and silver service somehow seamlessly blend into an experience of genuine hospitality and sensory indulgence.

This standout among safari lodges South Africa is built along the bank of a seasonal stream. An open-plan dining room and lounge merge with the wooden deck which lies in the shade of gigantic Leadwood trees, around which the main facility was constructed. An impressive suspension bridge connects the living areas with the suites, which lie scattered beyond the river bed.

The sole objective of the team of professionally skilled and personable staff is to meet the needs of their valued guests. To indulge, spoil, pamper and entertain, but most importantly – to share with them the story and experience of the elephants.

Each of Camp Jabulani’s six luxury suites is exquisite, remote and private…

Tucked within the dense foliage along a dry river bed, each safari suite is an oasis of opulent serenity. Massive wooden sliding doors open to interiors which are a pure translation of style, comfort, elegance and an understated appreciation of the natural environment.

Pure cotton sheets, massive stone tubs, an outdoor glass-enclosed shower, a fire-place with a separate lounge area, and a private plunge pool complement each of the rooms. Suites are also equipped with a mini-bar, safe, hairdryer and electric blankets. Comfort is ensured by the 24 hour temperature control.

Expansive windows allow for uninterrupted sunshine and views of the surrounding bush. In the evenings, cosy lighting, a blazing fire and a welcoming bed draw to a perfect close another day in Africa.

THE ZINDOGA VILLA

The Zindoga Villa has been designed for the guest who prefers the more exclusive touch, for the smaller group, or for the family traveler with younger children.

A completely self-contained facility, the Zindoga Villa in this Kruger Park lodge is a palatial replica of Camp Jabulani’s style and elemental premise. The Villa is an immense 424m2, with an additional 225m2 of wooden decking overlooking the wild African bush.

Two individual suites are connected by a joint lounge and dining area. Each unit has a massive bedroom with bathroom en-suite (including glass enclosed shower), expansive wooden deck, and a private heated plunge pool. One of the suites also has an adjoining charming twin room, with private bathroom, for two children sharing. The Villa can accommodate a maximum of 9 guests at any given time.

The Zindoga Villa has wireless internet connectivity throughout for those who need to be connected to business or home, and is serviced by its own dedicated team – including ranger (and private vehicle), chef and butler.

Elegance, grand open spaces, luxurious finishes, and a harmonious union with the African wild are the order of the day.
