Jabulani Safari is a deluxe safari lodge in Southern Africa offers guests a superior African safari experience, with hot air ballooning, bird watching, bush walks and exceptional wildlife viewing. Owner run and managed, guests will appreciate the real dedication of the commitment the Roode family have given to rehabilitating endangered animal species in Southern Africa.

The five-star Jabulani Safari is named after the first baby elephant which was abandoned and brought to the owners for rehabilitation. He was subsequently adopted, along with another 12 elephants from Zimbabwe. Since then, this exclusive Camp has become a sanctuary for endangered species and a beautiful refuge for travellers in search of a real African experience.

Dining

Jabulani menus change on a daily basis, as individual tastes are as unique as personalities, and the chefs are spoiled for choice with an abundance of delicious fresh ingredients, produced in the surrounding area. Many dietary preferences are catered for, like Kosher, Halal, and Vegetarian dishes. The chefs like nothing better than to interact with the guests and not only present the menus but share a recipe or two at your mealtime. Delectables such as freshly baked muffins, teatime treats, and sundowner snacks are all made fresh by the chefs themselves, daily. The Camp can also pair wine with your meal from their medal-winning collection, to create the ultimate experience for your dining in the bush occasion.

Mealtimes are flexible, and the venues tend to change, which is mostly weather dependent, and ensures you get to experience a candlelit dinner, should you want time out from the family, or a traditional boma night by the fire, surrounded by lanterns and starry night skies.
