Sapi Explorers Camp, on the banks of the Zambezi River, is situated within private Sapi Concession neighboring the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Mana Pools National Park which is known for its superb wildlife sightings around the river and in the flood plains.This small and intimate unfenced camp with its surrounding pristine wilderness landscape offers a real, raw, remote and rugged slice of Africa for travelers. It is a haven for big mammals such as lion, elephant, hippo and buffalo while smaller game and a substantial number – more than 450 – of bird species also call the greater Mana Pools area home.The tents of Sapi Explorers Camp – modelled after early African explorers’ accommodation – are spacious and simplistic in style while exuding unique touches. Luxury has not been spared. Each of the five tents has its own en-suite bathroom, with a traditional hot bucket shower, flush toilets and amenities, and there are private outdoor sitting areas with views jaw-dropping views over the Zambezi River and its wild inhabitants.In true explorer style, reminiscence about your day at the communal tent which flows onto the soft sand of the Zambezi River where a warm crackling fire creates the perfect ambiance around crimson sunsets as the sounds of the night gently disturbs the silence of nature. All the meals – from breakfast to a three-course dinner – is an explosion of different flavours and can be enjoyed inside, outside or even somewhere out in the bush, depending on the weather. Coffee and tea are available throughout the day and there is also a well-appointed bar.Forming part of the portfolio of Great Plains Conservation, preserving the natural heritage of the area lies at the heart of Sapi Explorers Camp.
