Discover the Private Sapi Concession
The Sapi Concession, exclusive to Great Plains, is a 128,000-hectare private reserve bordering Mana Pools. Staying at one of their two new luxury camps — Sapi Explorers and Tembo Plains — you can explore both Sapi and the National Park. Together with a private guide you can walk, canoe and drive, all while staying in exclusive comfort. You will be completely surrounded by wilderness, even visiting some places only accessible on foot, immersed in the exhilarating sounds, sights, and smells of the bush. It is a truly unmatched safari experience.
Relax at Ruckomechi in Mana Pools
If your preference is for a more sedate adventure along the Zambezi, consider Ruckomechi Camp
, the most luxurious of the accommodation options in Mana Pools National Park. Shaded by a large grove of acacia and mahogany trees, the camp looks across the river from its raised position on the riverbank. Here there are the options of both day and night game drives, river cruises, and nature walks. Catch and release fishing for bream, catfish, and tigerfish is a relaxing way to spend an afternoon out on the Zambezi River. Adventures might well continue after dark: you can spend a night sleeping outside on Ruckomechi’s romantic star bed.
Explore with world class safari guides
Stretch Safaris has run its rustic tented camp by the Zambezi for the past 30 years. It is the epitome of barefoot luxury but has lost none of the atmosphere of being in the bush. Guide Stretch Ferreira is a household name in the safari community: an afternoon in his company will completely transform the way in which you see the environment around you, especially if you join him on a nature walk or canoe safari through the shallower waters of the Zambezi River. Stretch’s numerous awards are highly deserved, and he’s quite a personality!
