How It Works
The luxury mobile camps are erected each time we host a new safari and are taken down after each one. This means we’re setting up a private safari camp just for YOU!
We operate camps throughout Zimbabwe, and when you book a safari we arrange for your camp to be set up in the area/s of your choice. The mobile camps are comprised of East-African A-frame tents, each with en-suite bathroom featuring hot water bucket showers & drop or flush toilets. Typically camps are maximum 6 tents, but we have capacity for up to 70 pax on request. To See more on The Tents click here
Our luxury mobile tented & walking safari operations span Zimbabwe’s premier wildlife areas, including Victoria Falls, Hwange NP, Matopos NP (we also have a semi-permanent luxury tented camp in Matopos on a private concession), Gonarezhou NP, Mana Pools and Matusadona. The luxury mobile camps are set up at National Parks camp sites within the Parks or at private operator sites in the National Parks. To learn more about our safari areas click here.
One of the greatest features of the mobile safaris is the ability to enjoy unlimited bush activities and to have the activities each day tailored to suit you. This means you can do as much or as little game driving, bush walking or relaxing in camp as you wish. The full flexibility also allows us to incorporate special focuses like birding, professional photography, hiking/adventure activities and even special activities for children. On a typical day, your standard activities might include:
- Game drives – all day game drives are welcome
- Bush walks (2-20km)
- Animal tracking
- Sundowners at waterholes
A highlight on our Zimbabwe safaris is the guiding. Our guides are all trained in Zimbabwe, where the program is widely recognized as superior to qualifications from other Southern African countries. In addition each of our regular guides has at least 15 years industry experience to their credit.
All our guides will deliver an enriching experience as they inform, participate with and host our guests, but we also take care to appropriate specific guides for specialist safaris that may require it. As an example, we have guides that are particularly good with children on family safaris, and others that have specialist knowledge of birds or photography. We will always pre-check with our guests when booking about their specific interests and will match them up with the guide that will best suit them. Meet Our Guides
