Set alongside the mighty Zambezi River near Mana Pools National Park, Sapi Explorers Camp excels at providing simple comforts and an intimate safari experience.
Accommodations at the Sapi Explorers consist of just five explorer-style canvas tents for a maximum of ten guests plus an additional guide’s tent. Each tent includes comfy beds that face the Zambezi River for an amazing view to wake up to. The en suite bathroom features a bucket shower and a flush toilet. A shaded veranda is fitted with chairs for enjoying a cup of coffee while watching the wildlife in the river and surrounding bush.
The camp is ideally situated on the private 296,526-acre Sapi Concession that was awarded to Great Plains Conservation to manage and preserve. Along with the neighboring Mana Pools National Park, the area comprises 1,301-square miles of pristine wilderness that has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The area was once a hunting concession but now animals such as elephants, lions, leopards, hyenas, wild dogs, buffalo, eland, and zebras are reemerging under the protection of Great Plains. This is a great spot for bird watching, especially waterfowl. The Zambezi River is home to hippos and crocodiles.
