#MadeFromAfrica: Meet the face of Amarula in the Limpopo bush

Post a comment 0

You don’t have to go to fancy golf resorts or city boutique hotels for a luxury long weekend tryst - and at the Amarula Lapa in Limpopo you can even taste the wild of Africa and feel like bush royalty.

If you drive to Kapama Private Game Reserve, you'll also have the chance to meet the official face of the brand at the elephant sanctuary Camp Jabulani. Sebakwe has been the star of the show since 2004, but before that he was rescued alongside the rest of his herd from a farm in Zimbabwe where they were almost slaughtered. They were trained for elephant back rides and could not be rewilded.

Initially elephant back rides in Kapama was on offer to raise money to care for them, but that was stopped in 2017 and interactions became limited to feeding and petting of the most well-trained elephants.

You can extend your experience with a luxurious stay at Kapama, which has four lovely lodges to choose from across the reserve, but if you’re looking for a good vibe with other travellers Kapama River Lodge offers an ideal stay.
