05 Feb 2018 Romantic Getaway
Anticipating a romantic getaway is the beginning of an adventure planned for you and your loved one. Organising such a getaway, one that is filled with elegance and laced with trimmings to suite royalty, is something we all dream of – especially to celebrate the day of love.
Camp Jabulani is a family owned lodge with Relais & Chateaux accreditation. Accommodation situated in the bush, next to riverbeds and surrounded by wildlife, is but the beginning of the expedition. Six suites are hidden in the fairy-tale setting, pared with rich wood, heavy stone and pure cotton. The outside wilderness is invited indoors through a spacious balcony. Free standing bath tubs, outdoor showers with glass walls and a private plunge pool create the romantic atmosphere fascinated by- and desired by most.
What makes this lodge different to any other, is the appearance of the Jabulani herd at dusk. With a glass of chardonnay with hints of caramel in hand, one can silently enjoy – in absolute awe – the splendour of the elephants after which the lodge was named.

Dinner underneath an explosion of stars with the light of a candle softly falling on the face of the one you love while indulging, in a chilled coconut, berry & beetroot soup as a starter. Anticipating the blueberry grilled beef fillet with honey roasted vegetables, a red plum puree and shaved radishes to follow. Celebrating the day of love without chocolate would be futile, so it is fitting that the perfect meal is concluded with a dark chocolate torte served with a cherry and chocolate mousse, fresh strawberries, Italian meringue and micro rose petals.
Wines are magnificently paired with dishes that transform your plate from endeavour to an intimate experience. All this against a sunset backdrop of colour that Monet could have painted, saying farewell to the daylight with your significant other right by your side. This ensures an unforgettable moment.
Days are ended off with cosy evenings snuggling next to your better-half in a romantic room with a lion or hyena calling in the background. No city lights, no commotion, just peace and tranquillity. Only you and your loved one pulled in by the peacefulness that the evening brings.
Would you like to treat the one you love to a once-in-a-lifetime experience?
