Safari in Zimbabwe

In the heart of southern Africa, land-locked Zimbabwe is a vibrant country with dramatic landscapes, abundant wildlife and all the fun activities and warm hospitality you could ask for when considering a safari in Zimbabwe with Great Plains Conservation.

Zimbabwe is the perfect safari destination for those active and adventurous travellers. A Zimbabwe safari with Great Plains Conservation offers you the opportunity to experience the diverse range of iconic African wildlife species and plentiful birdlife with our highly professional guides. Zimbabwe is also home to five Unesco World Heritage sites, including the majestic Victoria Falls and the Mana-Sapi-Chewore biosphere, that travellers can explore with Great Plains Conservation.

Located on the eastern boundary of the world-famous Mana Pools Reserve is our private, 120,000-hectare private Sapi Reserve. This private safari area expands the area under conservation for wildlife by an additional two-thirds! The Sapi Reserve is a remote and wild safari experience. Like the Selinda Reserve in Botswana, the Sapi Concession was a former hunting concession that Great Plains Conservation assumed the responsibility of a few years ago to conserve and protect as a photographic safari destination. Guests travelling to the Sapi Reserve on a Great Plains Zimbabwe safari have the opportunity to explore this stunning wilderness by vehicle and, in the footsteps of early explorers, guided on foot, canoe and boat by our expert wildlife guides.

Despite a turbulent history, Zimbabweans are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. After some difficult years, the country is reclaiming its rightful place on Africa’s safari circuit.

Great Plains Conservation is proud to join them on that journey. Our Réserve-Collection, and seasonal Tembo Plains Camp, includes a private and separate 2-bedroomed Tembo Plains Suite, set on the banks of the Zambezi River, await your arrival whilst on your safari in Zimbabwe safari with Great Plains Conservation.

“Tembo” meaning Elephant and reflects more than just a place and a name honouring the animals on these plains. It speaks to long and unique relationships we have with elephants. We draw on their pace and their essence for the atmosphere in camp.
