Sapi Explorers Camp

PLAN MY TRIP

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 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.

There are plenty of activities to enjoy at the camp. Early morning and late afternoon game drives in open 4×4 safari vehicles take in the diverse wildlife and terrain including the Mtawatawa Pan. Guided bush walks allow for a more intimate and detailed look at the local flora and fauna with the help of an expert tracker. Canoe and boating excursions explore the famous Zambezi River and its wild inhabitants. For guests who stay for nights or longer, there is a game drive to Mana Pools Reserve.

Delicious meals are enjoyed either indoors with in the open mess tent or on the beach overlooking the Zambezi adding a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. The mess tent also includes a comfy lounge fitted with couches and chairs for relaxing and swapping stories with other guests. At night, everyone gathers round the campfire on the beach to enjoy a drink and watch the sun set over the river. The camp is recommended for children over the age of twelve.
