Set within a Big Five private game reserve in the Greater Kruger Park of South Africa, Jabulani’s six suites and exclusive Zindoga Villa ensure a highly refined, personalised and intimate stay. Jabulani is not your usual safari lodge. It has a story that has inspired the world.
Jabulani was created to help look after a herd of rescued elephants, by the Roode family, nearly twenty years ago, and has led to the establishment, by Adine Roode, of South Africa’s first dedicated elephant orphanage, alongside the Jabulani stables, called HERD (Hoedspruit Elephant Rehabilitation & Development).
Today the Relais & Châteaux Jabulani lodge is a special marriage of conservation and hospitality, a place to meet magnificent wildlife, rest deeply, wine and dine under open skies, enjoy sundowners with elephants, and soulfully reconnect with nature and yourself. Each spacious suite is discrete, luxurious and complimented by both a private deck and plunge pool.
Guests have the opportunity to learn about the elephant herd, spend time with the devoted elephant carers and hear their insightful stories about their life journeys with these precious animals, as well as watch the elephants during their midday swims or while they forage with their carers in the wilderness.
