Jabulani! Where Peace Is Paramount 

Jabulani Safaris is located in one of the most beautiful stretches of wilderness that Zimbabwe has to offer. Nestled within 1400 hectares of indigenous msasa woodland, and surrounded by huge granite kopjes and dwalas, the Lodge is secluded and quiet, offering a peaceful, private and truly personal bush experience.

Jabulani has eight upmarket chalets, twin dormitories for large groups, and camping facilities.

We are easy to locate and access, being less than a two hour drive from Bulawayo and an hour from Gweru.

Jabulani provides a safe refuge for over 40 African wildlife and more than 100 bird species, all to be found in close proximity to the Lodge.

In addition we offer our guests an exciting range of adventure activities.

Join us in our homely atmosphere, and let us create for you a truly memorable bush holiday. From sundowners at the watering hole, to dinner beneath the stars, we ensure you have the very best that African hospitality has to offer; hearty farmhouse meals, relaxing facilities, comfortable accommodation and memorable experiences.
