The safari camp is build next to a seasonal stream under the shade of leadwood trees. Relax at the spa with a soothing massage or enjoy an elephant back safari in South Africa.

In June 1997, Jabulani was left to the elements after becoming stuck in the mud of a silt dam. His mother and herd abandoned him after several rescue attempts. It took a year to nurse Jabulani back to health. Lente tried to reintroduce him into the wild, but refused be separated from them.

In March 2002 Lente found out about 12 Zimbabwean elephants who were facing an untimely end. War veterans were expropriating the farm and tagged the elephants for their meat. Lente rescued them and the matriarch immediately adopted Jabulani. Jabulani now leads the elephant back rides which guests can enjoy.
