With a Relais & Chateaux accreditation, this camp is guaranteed to offer first class accommodation, cuisine, facilities and personalised service.
But its most notable feature is the herd of trained African elephants which were rescued by the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre.
Visitors can experience the extraordinary impact of interacting personally with these massive and magnificent animals on daily elephant rides (the only night safari in the world!), around the waterhole as they swim and play, and in the natural habitat surrounding their stables.
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.
Rich textures of organic elements create a harmonious and pleasing balance between “designer” and “authentic”. Grass-pressed mud walls, stone floors and thatched roofs are but some of the natural features guests may expect to find.
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 Villa has been designed for the guest who prefers the more exclusive touch, for the smaller group, or for the family traveller with younger children.
Camp Jabulani's Therapy Lapa lies tucked within the dense foliage of the reserve.
