Located within a Big Five private game reserve in the Greater Kruger Park area, Jabulani, with its six superior suites and the exclusive Zindoga Villa, offers a unique opportunity for gracious living in a five-star luxury lodge.
Each spacious and elegant suite is luxuriously furnished and features both a private deck and a plunge pool. Children are welcome at Jabulani from the age of six and at Zindoga Villa at any age.
Jabulani is a place to indulge your every sense, a place to explore the African wild and reconnect with nature, experience amazing wildlife and enjoy superb cuisine.
Your dedicated Jabulani ranger will ensure that your safari experience is tailor-made to your personal preference, whether laid back and relaxed or filled with game viewing and other activities.
Learn about our inspiring journey that began with a herd of elephants being rescued nearly twenty years ago. Our devoted elephant carers share insightful stories of their life journeys with the Jabulani herd, whilst you have opportunity to respectfully observe the elephants during their daily routines – while they enjoy their midday swim, forage in the wild and return single file to their stables in the evenings.
Truly a soulful, insightful and unforgettable experience.

South Africa's northernmost province, Limpopo, borders onto Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Botswana thus making it the ideal entrance to Africa.
The Limpopo Province celebrates a rich cultural heritage and at many archaeological sites the mysteries of the past and ancient peoples are still being unearthed.
Historians reveal that the first black Africans moved across the Limpopo (into what became known as South Africa) before 300 AD. The Voortrekkers arrived in the early nineteenth century and this part of the world changed forever. Numerous battles between indigenous African people and the Voortrekkers ensued. During apartheid, portions of land were divided into homeland areas. However, today the Limpopo Province is united in its aim to offer the best possible welcome for its visitors.
Limpopo is renowned for its hot, yet pleasant summers and dry winters.
Its weather is characterised by almost year-round sunshine. It can get very hot in summer (October - March), with temperatures rising to 27ºC (80,6 ºF) and, sometimes, even touching the mid-30s Celsius (mid-90s Fahrenheit).
In Room Facilities:
Each of the six superior suites is remote and private. Massive wooden sliding doors present interiors which are a pure translation of style, comfort, elegance and overall - an appreciation of the natural environment.
Pure cotton sheets, massive stone tubs, an outdoor glass-enclosed shower, a fireplace 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 and overhead ceiling fan.
Expansive windows allow for uninterrupted sunshine, and views of the surrounding bush. In the evenings, cozy lighting, a blazing fire and a welcoming bed draw to a perfect close another day in Africa.
A completely self-contained facility, the Zindoga Villa is a palatial replica of Jabulani's style and elemental premise.
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 a charming twin room, with private bathroom, for two children sharing. The suites are separated by an interleading door.
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.
Daily activities including elephant excursions, game drives in open safari vehicles, guided bush walks, accompanied by experienced game rangers and expert elephant handlers and a behind the scenes tour to the Hoedspruit Endangered Species centre. Additional activities such as hot air ballooning and helicopter flights can be arranged on request.
