Jabulani is all about elephants – it’s the camp of Adine Roode, who founded the HERD elephant orphanage on the same property. By staying at this intimate camp you’ll be supporting Adine’s inspiring conservation efforts.


Kruger National Park is surrounded by the most private luxury safari lodges in Africa – because sightings of all the Big 5 are almost guaranteed, and it’s easy to get there. I’ve spent a lot of time at a friend’s camp in the Sabi Sand, which is the best – animals allow you to get real close, and you can drive off-road to them. Pricier camps are not only more luxurious – a/c, private pools, butlers etc – but also have larger traversing areas. South Africa.
