Camp Jabulani is a five-star Relais & Chateaux accredited luxury lodge offering an extraordinary African experience for the discerning traveller.

The origin of Camp Jabulani reflects the remarkable account of a herd of elephants, rescued from certain death shortly after the turn of the century. Jabulani had been abandoned by his herd as a baby, while a number of trained Zimbabwean elephants were under threat from war veterans expropriating their owner’s farm. This tale had a happy ending when Jabulani and the rest of the elephant herd were brought together and given a new home on the 16 000 hectare Kapama Game Reserve. Camp Jabulani was created for the sole purpose of supporting the herd.

Today visitors have the exclusive opportunity to observe the herd in close proximity, learning more about their behavior, their unique character traits, their incredible story and what it takes to take care of them. Much of this takes place while the elephants are in their natural environment, foraging in the bush, walking through the reserve or swimming in the waterhole. Photographic opportunities in close proximity of the elephants are also afforded.
