Reflects More Than Just A Place
For those travellers seeking a luxury Zimbabwe safari, Tembo Plains Camp, located in the private Sapi Reserve, welcomes you. “Tembo” means Elephant. The camp honours these animals found on these Zimbabwean plains alongside the Zambezi River. We draw on the elephant’s pace and essence for the camp’s atmosphere. Tembo Plains Camp is tucked away into a thick riverine forest on the edge of the Zambezi River, in the private 128,000-hectare Sapi Private Reserve, east of Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools National Park.
The camp’s design, a unique combination of canvas and stone walls, pays homage to the ancient Zimbabwe Ruins while still giving you the authentic under-canvas safari feeling. The focus here is centred around adventure, with guests having the opportunity to take part in plenty of day and night game drives as well as walking safaris in the area surrounding the camp. What’s more, the camp’s proximity to the Zambezi provides a unique opportunity to get a view of this stunning area while canoeing down one of Africa’s mightiest rivers.
