Sapi Explorers Camp
The 118,000 hectare private Sapi Concession was awarded to Great Plains Conservation to manage and look after in 2016. Immediately the concession was converted to operating as a private photographic reserve. A myriad of steps were implemented to minimise the various impacts humans had had on the area prior to this conversion. This amazing wildlife sanctuary, along with the neighbouring Mana Pools National Park, now comprise over 337,000 hectares of prime protected wilderness estate, with the Sapi Reserve, today being recognised as one of the finest destinations in Africa. Collectively they form part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site as well as a core area of the middle-Zambezi biosphere reserve.
Sapi Explorers Camp, located along the Zambezi River, creates a safari experience reminiscent of the old African explorers with a romance of yester-year, whilst ensuring that adventure and discovery are essentially part of the journey. The camp is perfectly located along the Zambezi River, the perfect base from which to explore the Sapi Reserve, Mana Pools and the Zambezi River. With space for 12 guests in 5 Explorers-style tents each with en-suite bathroom facilities including bucket shower and flush toilet, this is the Africa of old.
Watch wildlife congregate along the Zambezi River to drink and marvel at the setting of the African sun through the trees. The safari experiences on offer will certainly appeal to any safari guest who is looking to truly enjoy and partake in the excitement of wildlife viewing game drives, boating and canoeing or tracking and exploring the interior of the private reserve, being one of Africa’s remote wilderness areas. Whilst you traverse the diverse terrain of the Sapi Reserve, discover the legendary Mtawatawa pan, encounter some of Africa’s largest wildlife species by vehicle or on foot. The opportunity to view Africa’s animals and birdlife with the water activities on offer including canoeing or boating is special indeed. For guests staying 3 nights or more, the opportunity to visit the Mana Pools National Park is included in the nightly rates.
