Camp Jabulani is a perfect translation of the African bush, seamlessly blending classic and elegant interiors (fit for princes and kings, but warm enough to make the most “down-to-earth” feel completely at home) with the natural bush beyond. A camp of and within the elements. Rich woods, crystal glasses, silver service somehow seamlessly blend into an experience of genuine hospitality and sensory indulgence. The camp 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 these living areas with the suites which lie scattered beyond the river bed.
Each of the six luxury 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 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 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.

The Zindoga Presidential Villa is Camp Jabulani’s most recent addition, and has been designed for the guest who prefers the more exclusive touch, for the smaller group, or for the family traveller with younger children. The Villa is a mammoth 424m2, with an additional 225m2 of wooden decking overlooking the wild African bush. A completely self-contained facility, the Zindoga Villa is a palatial replica of Camp 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.
Meal times at Camp Jabulani truly are a celebration of the senses. Perfectly sized portions are arranged in an art form of colour, texture and balance. A fusion of tastes and ingredients thrill the palate. As course after course materialise from the magicians in the kitchen – culinary appreciation reaches altogether new heights. Only fresh ingredients are used in each of the dishes prepared. Home baked muffins and tea time treats, as well as sundowner snacks are created each day. Many would argue that no good meal is complete without a good bottle of fine South African wine. Camp Jabulani has a good selection of both red and white wines proudly produced in the rich and unique wine-lands of the Cape. Prepare to feast like a king!
