1. Elephant Update


Elephants
Kumbura was the last elephant to join our herd. Left orphaned when she was separated from her herd, farmers Gordon and Jen Mundell discovered her and did everything in their power to ensure that she survived. Their prayers were answered when they found her a new home at Camp Jabulani. Read more…

We celebrated Pisa’s 6th birthday. Born on a scorching hot day and 4 kilometres away from the stables, her extraordinary story is one of great strength and resilience. Read more…

2. We upgrade our Stables


We upgrade our Stables

Our elephants have grown exponentially since they arrived some 10 years back, and the time has come to upgrade their stables. A very costly and time-intensive process, but the results will be well worth it. Read more…

4. From the Kitchen


From the Kitchen
Breakfast is considered one of the most important meals of the day, so we thought we would share a few of our really popular recipes with you. They are delicious, get rave reviews, and are also packed with nutritional value. Read more…

We have a very special menu planned at Christmas time, to be enjoyed by those who celebrate the occasion as well as those who don’t. To usher our guests into the New Year, we also have a little surprise up our sleeve. Without giving too much away, let’s just say that this is a unique South African tradition, and something that will never be experienced anywhere else in the world!

5. Lodge Upgrades

Lodge Upgrades

To ensure that we maintain the high standards which our guests and partners have come to expect, we’ve embarked on a few upgrades around the lodge. We’ve given our thatched roofing a revamp, and have also heated and added fibre cast to our swimming pools. We have also replaced all of the beds in the lodge. These finishes are critical to our guests’ comfort, but have no bearing on the look and feel of the lodge.

Our next project is The Therapy Lapa (outdoor bush spa). Watch this space!

Conservation
We’ve put together something really special! THE AFRICAN ELEPHANT PROJECT gives visitors the extraordinary life experience of what it takes to be an elephant caregiver. The hands-on ​3 day itinerary is not for the faint-hearted, but is for the person with a love of the pachyderm. Contact Mari for more information.

Get involved in the Rescued Rhinos @ HESC

In the previous edition of our news, we communicated about the ‘Rescued Rhinos @ HESC’ – a rhino sanctuary that has been established at the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre (HESC). At the time there were four rhinos in their custody.

Since then, two more orphaned baby rhinos have arrived at The Centre, bringing to six the total number of rhinos in HESC’s care. The story of these rhinos, named Stompie and Balu, is no different to that of Gertjie and Matimba. All four lost their mothers at the hands of ruthless poachers.

Arriving within days of each other, Stompie is estimated to be about 7 months, while Balu was estimated to be a mere two weeks old!

We are happy to report that both rhinos have adjusted well to their new environment, and have even formed a tight ‘brotherly’ bond. As painful as the circumstances that brought them to The Centre are, it is pleasing to see them thriving.
