CLASSIC SAFARI LODGE ELEGANCE
The style and ambiance of the Jabulani main lodge resonates that of a classic African safari lodge, refined with a fresh and modish touch.
Grass-pressed walls, stone floors and thatched roofing create a unique fusion of natural textures that complement the sophistication of the interior design.
The elegant dining room and cosy lounge lead you to an outside wooden deck that lies beneath the shade of impressive Leadwood trees – the ideal setting to enjoy an al fresco lunch while overlooking the adjacent waterhole: African safari lodge heaven.
Enjoy a pre-dinner drink at the Jabulani cocktail bar and lounge, and share your favourite safari experience of the day with fellow guests and staff.
You will soon find yourself browsing and discussing the years of memories that the Roode family share with pride. Their soulful journey in conservation is framed for all to enjoy.
MORE ABOUT THE LODGE
Our signature Jabulani suspension bridge stretches gracefully over the seasonal river bed below, connecting the main lodge to the six Jabulani suites and Zindoga Villa.
This impressive bridge was designed to blend in naturally with its surroundings, using a high quality hard timber that ages well, without the need for harsh chemicals to treat the wood.
An intimate private wine cellar, perfect for private wine tastings and cosy dinners.
Enjoy some of South Africa’s finest wines from our collection.
The Jabulani Gym
For those that would like to work off the calories from our chef’s culinary delights, we have an open-air fitness area that provides the perfect backdrop for a workout.
A variety of weights, a treadmill, and an exercise bike provide the necessary equipment to get your heart rate going. There is also a sauna available to enjoy.
THE JABULANI SUITES
AN AFRICAN OASIS IN EACH SUITE.
Designed with pure relaxation and intimacy in mind, the Jabulani suites are as discrete in positioning as they are lavished in detail.
Each suite opens up to a private oasis set in the African bush. A crystal blue plunge pool with views over the riverbed below, is complimented by a generous wooden deck, purely for your leisurely pleasure.
A traditional fireplace graces your Jabulani Suite lounge, creating a perfect setting for a romantic in-suite dining experience, followed by a nightcap in the privacy of your heated plunge pool.
Your grand and luxurious freestanding stone bath can easily welcome you and your loved one, to soak up the sounds of the surrounding African wildlife and nature. Or enjoy a semi-outdoor shower, that whilst frosted for your privacy, enjoys a view over the natural environment outside.
THE ZINDOGA VILLA
AFRICAN VILLA EXCLUSIVITY AT IT’S VERY FINEST
Zindoga Villa brings absolute exclusivity to one of South Africa’s finest game lodges. A private villa entrance leads you to a secluded 700 m2 three-bedroom grand villa that reflects the splendid elegance of the Jabulani offering.
A dedicated team of staff consisting of a private chef, butler and ranger will make your Zindoga Villa experience truly unforgettable, whilst respecting your personal space at all times.
The master suite, as well as the main suite, each has its own expansive wooden deck, private heated plunge pool and traditional fireplace. The en-suite bathrooms have free-standing impressive stone baths, as well as showers with views onto the surrounding natural environment. These spacious suites offer an additional day bed for a third person to share, if required.
A charming twin-bedded suite adjoining the main suite is ideal for two children or two adults sharing. This suite has a private bathroom with a separate bath and shower.
The spacious and luxurious Zindoga Villa lounge and dining room offer a wonderful space to relax in private with friends and family. The living areas are complimented by an impressive fire place and an adjoining deck for alfresco dining.
Guests have the choice of dining in-villa, or enjoying one of the many other private and exclusive dining options available to our Jabulani guests.

THE JABULANI CULINARY JOURNEY
“FIRST, WE EAT, THEN WE DO EVERYTHING ELSE.” ~ M.F.K. FISHER
Food is personal, taste is personal and our Jabulani chef’s approach to each one of our guests is always personal.
Every day a unique menu is created passionately and sincerely by our chef on duty, using only the freshest and finest of seasonal ingredients.

True to the reputation of being a Relais and Chateaux accredited property, we approach our gastronomy with brilliant creativity and soulfulness. This paired with our personalised butler service, creates a magical Jabulani Culinary Journey.
