Camp Jabulani Current Initiatives

Camp Jabulani has launched two new sustainable projects, the ‘Weeping-Boer-Bean Tree’ and the ‘Sharing is Caring’ projects, in a bid to further the camp’s eco-initiatives.

The ‘Weeping Boer-Bean’ can be bought in a ‘grow-it yourself kit’, available at the camp’s sister property, the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre. The kit contains one elephant dung ball with potting soil at its centre. It is here that the bean is planted, along with water. Easy to follow directions and information on the tree are included.

The dung project, ‘Sharing is Caring’, recycles the elephant dung gathered from Camp Jabulani and sells it as a ‘soil amendment’ at the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre. Visitors to the Centre are able to purchase this unusual souvenier, as the gift that keeps on giving. Plans are nourished and fertilised, and in the process become strong and healthy.

Funds raised contribute to the anti-poaching rhino patrols in the area.


The Camp Jabulani Philosophy

Camp Jabulani Philosophy

Merging nature and architecture

A strong indigenous approach has been followed in the landscaping of the lodge.  This not only ensures a man-made environment in harmony with its natural landscape – it in addition ensures that minimum maintenance and natural resources such as watering vegetation is required to sustain Camp Jabulani.

Waste Management

Household waste generated during the daily operation of the lodge and associated activities is disposed of at a permitted waste site in terms of the Environmental Conservation Act 1989 (Act 73 of 1989), thereby ensuring that all strict guidelines for waste management sites have been implemented to ensure that groundwater pollution is prevented.
