The Keepers

The elephant herd at Camp Jabulani needs a lot of “TLC”, and taking care of 15 elephants (including bulls with big personalities, growing babies and rambunctious teenagers) is hard work. It calls for a special group of people with a lot of patience and skill.


At Camp Jabulani, we are very grateful to say that we have been blessed with the best elephant keepers in the world. These men come from different regions in Africa, ranging from Zimbabwe to Cape Town to Mozambique, all with years of experience raising and living with elephants.


The team consists of 2 Managers, 7 Senior Keepers and 18 Supporting Keepers.
