Overview

Set in a private 120 000-hectare wildlife concession and with only three suites on offer, Sapi Springs Camp delivers a beguiling mix of luxurious exclusivity and excellent game viewing. Bordering the world-renowned Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe and making up the core of the Middle-Zambezi Biosphere Reserve, the Sapi Concession is accessible to photographic and walking safaris, giving travellers an exciting destination on the Sapi River to explore.

Much of the reserve is accessed on foot and Sapi Springs Camp specialises in walking safaris, led by professional guides and armed rangers, a thrilling, rewarding experience. The camp also offers game drives in specially designed vehicles, allowing you to balance walking with game drives. Families are welcome with the raised accommodation best suited for older children only.

The emphasis is on finding the Zambezi’s heavyweight wildlife like elephants, buffalo and hippo along with big cats, wild dogs and crocodiles. The bird watching is also very good (look out for Lillian’s lovebirds, sand grouse and raptors) and you will enjoy classic sunsets and a chance to sweep a spotlight around in the evening to catch sight of Africa’s nocturnal creatures on the move on night game drives. Back at camp you have a luxurious suite to look forward to, complete with your private star-bed – made up with crisp cotton sheets and set under a mosquito net and the night sky.

Facilities

As a small lodge with only three suites, at Sapi Springs Camp you will find friendly smiles at the main camp, which is set under riverside trees like strangler figs and is home to the reception area, lounge and bar plus your indoor and outdoor dining venues. The main deck looks out over the seasonal Sapi River where the soundtrack supplied by lovebirds, parrots and bulbuls, feeding from the fruiting trees.

A laundry service is provided and there is a battery-recharging port in the lounge as well as USB rechargers in the game-drive vehicles.

Dining

You will enjoy three meals a day at Sapi Springs Camp. They are extremely flexible about timing, enabling you to go out earlier, stay out later – indeed, all day if you want – and remain longer at the exceptional sightings without having to rush back for a set-time meal. Breakfasts and lunches are served out in the bush almost as much as they are at camp. Sit down to white linen and candlelight for a 3-course evening meal every night.

Tea and coffee are available all day and chilled drinks and snacks are served as sundowners while on your afternoon activity. With prior notice, they can cater for all dietary requirements.
