Safaris

camp jabulani safaris
Identify the call of a bird; follow the bark of a baboon or the roar of a lion in the midst of their natural environment.

 

Guests are able to join experienced rangers in open safari vehicles as they head out in search of The Big 5, and the smaller (but no less significant) creatures that are part of an African Safari.

 

Camp Jabulani’s rangers are consummate professionals. Highly experienced in guiding in the African bush, they are the perfect big five safari ambassadors while out in the bush.

 

Guests can expect close encounters with animals in the wild – the stuff that movies are made of. Avid photographers, both amateur and professional, will never find their viewfinder empty and can expect to return home with incredible safari memories captured forever.

 

Safaris may be arranged at any time of the day. A word of warning though…. the summer months are incredibly hot in the middle of the day! This time is best enjoyed around the cool respite of a private plunge pool with a chilled G & T in hand.

THE RESERVE

Covering approximately 16 000 hectares of prime big game territory, Kapama Private Game Reserve has succeeded in combining the wilderness of the bush with the comforts of five-star hospitality and facilities.

 

Kapama Private Game Reserve (Hoedspruit, Limpopo) was proclaimed a private game reserve in December 1993.  The name comes from ‘Kapama’, a Swazi king whose tribe inhabited and hunted in the northern Drakensberg mountain region around Mariepskop back in the 1880s.

 

A game relocation programme was introduced, and the Game Reserve now supports a wide variety of game including elephant, buffalo, rhinoceros, and large populations of giraffe, impala, blue wildebeest and kudu. Predators include lion, leopard, cheetah, spotted hyena and many smaller species. Bird-watching is most rewarding on the reserve and more than 350 bird species have been recorded, including the rare Gymnogene and Knob-billed duck.

 

The vegetation is typical of the lowveld: mixed woodland, which is dominated by a variety of acacia and bushwillow species, but also includes tamboti, marula, silver cluster leaf and jackalberry.

 

Game viewing during the hot summer months (October to April) is more comfortable in the early mornings and late afternoon when it is cooler. Late afternoon rain showers are not uncommon.

 

Camp Jabulani vehicles depart into the reserve each day, and in the company of the experienced rangers, visitors are transported on safari into a wild, natural world where animals take precedence and humans are left to observe as nature takes its course as it has done for thousands of years.
