Camp Jabulani is all about family, and ensuring the ultimate family safari. Whether you share in ours, or bring your own, we have something special in store that will delight both older and younger guests.
Children of all ages are welcome at The Zindoga Villa. Two children may be accommodated in a charming twin-bedded suite with en-suite bathroom, while a third child is easily accommodated in the suite’s adjoining lounge area where a day bed may be converted into a single bed. Camp Jabulani’s reservations team will gladly assist in structuring your accommodation requirements to suit you.
Camp Jabulani, on the Kapama Game Reserve, has a dedicated team of caregivers on hand to take care of children should parents wish to enjoy a spa treatment in The Therapy Lapa, or dine in the general camp environment. A specially tailored “Kiddies Menu” is available for children, which is sure to appeal to even the most discerning palate!
Camp Jabulani’s Children’s Programme has a host of exciting activities that will keep youngsters entertained for hours, while teaching them all about Africa’s diverse wildlife. The “TEAM TUSKER” Programme caters for safari-goers 6 years and older, and is structured to stimulate and entertain younger guests, as well as to allow parents to take a little “time out”.
Please note, children under the age of 10 may only be accommodated on early morning elephant safaris (if they are accompanied by parents | guardians). Watch the clip of an elephant interaction below.
Kids are whisked off into a wildlife wonderland, and are able to participate in any number of exciting activities which have been designed with optimum enjoyment in mind (and a lot of exciting learning too!).
