Sapi Explorers Camp

Sapi Explorers Camp has a shaded and secluded setting beside the Zambezi River in the Sapi Reserve in north-eastern Zimbabwe. Located on the eastern edge of Mana Pools, Sapi is 120,000 hectares of rugged and beautiful wilderness framed by the Sapi River in the west and the Chewore River in the east, the Zambezi to the north and a 600 metre escarpment to the south.

Accommodation and Facilities

Sapi Explorers has five large Meru style tents, one of which has two bedrooms for a family. The tents have campaign style furniture, an en-suite bathroom with a bucket shower and a flush loo, and gauze sides to allow the breeze to flow through, with closable canvas covers for privacy and cooler weather. There’s a shaded verandah in front of each, and all parts of the tents have wonderful views across the river to the escarpment in Zambia. The camp has an attractive open sided mess tent, with a large dining table and a lounge, library and bar. Meals are often eaten outside, and are usually prepared on an open fire with guests welcome to watch.

Wildlife & Activities

Sapi Explorers Camp offers a number of activities which include boat and canoe trips, drives in the vast Sapi wilderness, walking safaris, and fishing. The reserve has good wildlife which includes elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, hippo, crocodile, nyala, impala, waterbuck, and kudu. The birdlife is also excellent, thanks to the amazing variety of vegetation and landscapes.
