Deluxe shelter at Jabulani is the norm

The custom designed Jabulani elephant stables are spacious and airy and give the elephants the freedom to choose between indoor or outdoor shelter. Four separate areas under roof provide access to an outdoor paddock where fresh water and food is provided every night.

The elephants are grouped to share a stable area at night according to their personalities and the dynamics within the herd. And should the group dynamics change, the design of the stables allows new configurations to be made easily and quickly.

Currently the elephants are grouped as follows:

  • Group 1: Tokwe, Somopane and the younger elephants, Limpopo, Timisa, Kumbura and Pisa
  • Group 2: Jabulani, Lundi and Mambo
  • Group 3: Fishan, Bubi and Zindoga
  • Group 4: Setombe, Sebakwe and Klaserie

As a guest at Jabulani, part of your Elephant Experience is to observe the herd as they retire to their stables in the evenings and learn more about the herd dynamics, as well as the daily routine that goes into the upkeep and cleanliness of the stables.
