Tented Safaris Zimbabwe – Our Camps
Luxury Mobile Tented Camps
Luxury Mobile Tented Safaris Zimbabwe
Our Luxury Mobile Tented Camps comprise East African A-frame safari tents, each fully furnished with an en-suite bathroom. Kitted for comfort and designed to be intimate and exclusive, camps typically comprise a maximum of 6 tents (up to 12 pax although we also offer much bigger camps of up to 30 tents for groups e.g. for bush weddings and corporate groups).
Rooms come furnished with beds & linen, and a canvas cupboard for storage. Tents sleep 2 pax and have either twin or double beds. For families with small children we have a special tent configuration, adjoining two tents with a bathroom at the back of the tents so that mum and children have complete access to one another during the night.
The bathroom feature is an extension out of the back of the tent, shielded and private, though open air i.e. ‘under the stars’. It includes hot water bucket showers and drop or flush toilets, and each bathroom has a water station for washing hands / brushing teeth. It is intended to be functional rather than palatial, but we do ensure all the basics are in place to give you a comfortable ablution facility.
In and around camp we light pathways and main areas with paraffin lanterns. In our guest tents the lighting is comprised of paraffin and LED lanterns.
Power Supply – Charging Equipment
Mobile camps are of course not connected to any main power source. However we can supply inverters for recharging camera equipment and lights. In special circumstances we are able to provide a generator – for film crews with equipment etc.
Explorer Mobile Tented Camps
Explorer Mobile Tented Camps In Zimbabwe
Explorer Tented Camps are for the adventurous at heart. They are geared at a more budget conscious safari experience and are suited to groups of 4 or more. The camp is much lighter weight than that luxury mobile tented camp and may be part participatory. Guests enjoy an informal camp set up, fire-side catering and more camp-like furnishings on the whole.
Whilst the game viewing and guiding experience matches that of the luxury mobiles, this camp is more about exploring and living closer to nature than the luxury mobile camps. Being lighter weight it is possible to move this camp more readily that the heavier luxury mobile camp which makes it ideal for guests who want to spend a week or so really getting to know different areas within a Park.
Our Explorer Tented Camp sleeps maximum 12 pax.
Explorer camps comprise dome style tents with basic furnishings, including stretcher beds and a single canvas cupboard for storage. Lighter-weight and smaller than Luxury Mobile tents, the Explorer tents are really just a sleeping space and not much more. The focus on these safaris is being out of camp – getting a full out-door adventure, and spending as little time as possible in the tents.
Explorer camps have shared ablutions (with hot water bucket showers & drop toilets, or we may use the National Parks sites ablution facilities) and are generally more rustic overall.
As with the Luxury Mobiles the camp has paraffin and LED lanterns for lighting in keeping with the moonlight bush ambiance.
