THE 120,000-HECTARE PRIVATE SAPI CONCESSION WAS AWARDED TO GREAT PLAINS CONSERVATION TO MANAGE AND LOOK AFTER IN 2016 AND WAS IMMEDIATELY CONVERTED TO OPERATING AS A PRIVATE PHOTOGRAPHIC RESERVE.

This amazing wildlife sanctuary, along with the neighbouring Mana Pools National Park, now comprises over 337,000 hectares of prime protected wilderness. Collectively they form part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site as well as the core of the Middle-Zambezi Biosphere Reserve.

At Sapi Springs Camp, located inland along the seasonal Sapi River, guests have the opportunity to sleep in the open-air, on a raised platform, under a canopy of indigenous trees. Three guest rooms offer a large comfortable bed, elegantly set under a mosquito net, on raised outdoor sleeping platform. In addition, each room has a ground level sitting area, second bedroom and “en-suite” bathroom facility that includes a flush toilet and shower. The beauty of this camp is the experience of sleeping safely under the African stars, shaded by a tangle of tree branches. The thrill of listening to the night’s sounds, and being so close to nature, is an experience not to be missed.

The main area of the camp is set in the open-air under the shade of a Strangler Fig. There is something about being under those huge trees that puts you completely at ease and makes Sapi Springs Camp the perfect place to spend the afternoon relaxing, reading a book and watching as Lillian’s lovebirds, sand grouse and other birds visit the spring. In addition to relaxing in camp, time at Sapi Springs is spent walking and exploring on foot, intermixed with wildlife drives in open vehicles that will take you to explore further into the remote interior of the Sapi Reserve.

Guests have the opportunity to experience up-close encounters with elephant, lion, leopard, hyena, wild dog, buffalo, eland, zebra and other ungulate species. This is also prime bird watching country and opportunities abound for guests to spot resident and migrant species especially in the early morning and late afternoons.

AN INTIMATE, TRADITIONAL SPACE WHERE HEARTS AND SPIRITS FIND INSPIRATION IN A HISTORY, RICH WITH EXTRAORDINARY WILDLIFE STORIES AND VIEWS ALONG THE EVOCATIVE ZAMBEZI RIVER.

Mpala Jena Camp is an exquisite and exclusive canvas tented camp, located on a private concession within the Zambezi National Park, just outside Victoria Falls.

Its four guest tents are elegantly positioned under the dappled shade of a mixture of indigenous trees. Each is under beige, flowing canvas, with canopy ceilings and open (yet netted) views of the river frontage, with Moroccan style influences throughout the decor. A lounge area with a desk, and en-suite bathroom facilities which include an impressive bathtub, indoor shower, separate loo and double basins await. Decking in front of the tent leads to a private plunge pool with views of the calming and peaceful flowing waters of the Zambezi River.

The camp is named after the natural spring-line which runs through the centre of the concession, and also means “White Impala”, following regular sightings of a “ghost-like” albino impala in the late 1970’s.

Healthy and ever increasing population of wildlife species abound, with higher concentrations of buffalo and elephant during the months June through to October.

The area is good for bird watching throughout the year, with a higher diversity during the months November through to April.

This is the most environmentally and innovative camp within Zimbabwe’s Zambezi National Park.

The property is conveniently located 16 kilometres inside the Zambezi National Park which makes for easy access to Victoria Falls town and the wide range of activities there, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle that guests can relax and enjoy the incredible setting and wild habitat of Zambezi National Park.

A PERFECT, IDYLLIC LOCATION TO RETIRE TO WHEN ONE HAS EXHAUSTED THE MYRIAD OF ACTIVITIES AVAILABLE TO SAFARI GOERS IN ZIMBABWE’S VICTORIA FALLS.

The Mpala Jena Suite is an exquisite, private, and exclusive, two bedroom suite, located on a private concession within the Zambezi National Park.

Overlooking a beautiful stretch of the Zambezi River, the suite is elegantly positioned under the dappled shade of a mixture of indigenous trees.

The Mpala Jena Suite is named after the natural spring-line which runs through the centre of the concession, and also means “White Impala”, following regular sightings of a “ghost-like” albino impala in the late 1970’s.

A private residence, the Mpala Jena Suite is under beige flowing canvas with canopy ceilings and open (yet netted) views of the Zambezi River. Moroccan style influences permeate the décor. It sleeps a maximum of 4 adults sharing or a party of 5 if there are children travelling with two parents. There is a central private lounge and dining area with the spacious bedrooms on either side offering en-suite bathroom facilities including an impressive bathtub and indoor shower. Decking in front leads to a private plunge pool and camp-fire area with views of the calming and peaceful flowing waters.

The Mpala Jena Suite has been created to be the most environmentally innovative camp within the Zambezi National Park, achieved through the use of only recycled hardwoods and canvas in its construction and ensuring all the camp’s electricity needs come from solar.

Healthy and ever increasing population of wildlife species abound, with higher concentrations of buffalo and elephant from June through to October.

Bird watching is good throughout the year, with a higher diversity of species during the months November through to April.

The property is conveniently located 16 kilometres inside the Zambezi National Park which makes for easy access to Victoria Falls town and the wide range of activities there, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle that guests can relax and enjoy the incredible setting and wild habitat of Zambezi National Park.
