Luxury Safari in Africa

Great Plains Conservation was founded on the refusal to make any trade-offs between offering a luxury safari in Africa and sustainability. 

We proudly offer you the ultimate luxury safari experiences in Africa at some of the most luxurious, sustainable and lauded safari camps we own and manage anywhere in Africa.

Our Réserve-Collection camps are our highest-level offering and ensure that your safari is as luxurious and private as it is environmentally-friendly and conservation-driven. At these camps, you can enjoy the finer things in life without worrying about adverse environmental effects, ensuring a 100% guilt-free holiday.

At these luxury safari camps, you can expect 1000 square-foot tents, plunge pools, wine cellars, in-room massages and spa treatments, complimentary use of professional cameras and lenses, and high-quality binoculars. Also available are two-bedroom suites like our Sitatunga Private Island Suite, Dhow Suite at Zarafa, Selinda Suite, Duba Plains Suite, The Zanji Suite at Tembo Plains, Sambuk Suite at Mara Nyika and the Jahazi Suite at Mara Plains. Each of these private, 2-bedroom Suites offers you the included services of a private safari vehicle, guide, chef and staff and is perfect for families or groups of friends wanting the ultimate privacy, experience and exclusivity.

The Great Plains Conservation’s sustainable ethos ensures our camps are constructed from natural and recycled materials and run almost entirely off solar power.

The Great Plains Conservation’s sustainable ethos ensures our camps are constructed from natural and recycled materials and run almost entirely off solar power.

We use UV reverse osmosis for drinking water and eco-friendly greywater recycling systems.
Zarafa Camp has a cutting-edge biogas system that converts vegetable scraps into methane-based cooking gas, for example.

We are committed to reducing waste and eliminating single-use plastic in all of our camps.

At Great Plains, guests can experience a blend of 100% conservation with 100% luxury, compromising neither while maximising both.

In the spirit of luxury, Zarafa Camp was awarded the first-ever accreditation by Relais & Châteaux of a safari camp in Botswana. Selinda Camp and Duba Plains Camp have since joined Zarafa. ol Donyo Lodge, Mara Plains Camp and Mara Nyika Camp hold the same distinction as the only Relais & Châteaux properties in Kenya. Tembo Plains Camp is also recognised as the only Relais & Châteaux safari camp in Zimbabwe.

All these safari camps are handpicked for their exceptional safari experiences and commitment to sustainable practices.
