Tembo Plains Camp

Discover Tembo Plains Camp

Situated in the private Sapi Reserve, east of Zimbabwe's Mana Pools National Park, Tembo Plains Camp is a luxury camp tucked away in a thick riverine forest on the edge of the wildlife-rich Zambezi River. Aside from day and night game drives, there's also boating, canoeing or guided walks in the area. Tembo Plains forms part of the Great Plains portfolio, a conservation organization that uses eco tourism as a tool to sustain conservation programs.

Tembo Plains Camp is an exclusive camp with only four suites, each with its own private indoor lounge area, outdoor swimming pool (with exercise bikes on an expansive veranda) and outdoor dining area. For families or two couples looking for the ultimate private safari, there's also the 2-bedroomed Zanji Suite.
