About Jabulani Elephant Workshop - Hosted by Dr Johan Marais

Join world-renowned Elephant expert and veterinarian Dr Johan Marais on a 3-day workshop (11th December 2019 - 14th December 2019) to explore their complex social structures, behavioural patterns, genetics, their importance to wildlife areas and other mammal species, whilst gaining an insight into the management of elephants in fenced reserves.

Accompanied by our experienced guides, we observe these impressive mammals from the comfort of a game drive vehicle in the diverse habitats offered on the Kapama Private Game Reserve. The Jabulani gallery & stables act as ideal venues for Johan’s lectures, interactive presentations and further discussion on this fascinating topic.


DR JOHAN MARAIS Johan grew up in Namibia’s Etosha and has an unusual passion for elephants since his childhood. When he is not lecturing students, he leads rescue operations as co-founder of Saving the Survivors and travels across Africa to research, promote and implement the least invasive ways to manage elephant herds in fenced wildlife areas. His extensive research and photographic skills resulted in the bestseller “Great Tuskers of Africa”.
