Tembo Plains Camp

Located in the private 128,000-hectare Sapi Reserve, Tembo Plains Camp provides a luxurious escape in Zimbabwe’s pristine wilderness. “Tembo Plains”, translating to “Elephant Plains”, is beautifully situated amidst thick riverine forest along the Zambezi River’s edge.

Elephant Wildlife Haven in Sapi Reserve

Located in the expansive Sapi Reserve near Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools National Park, Tembo Plains Camp offers a tranquil retreat amid Africa’s natural beauty. The camp’s design, blending canvas with stone walls, draws inspiration from the Zimbabwe Ruins, echoing the area’s rich heritage. “Tembo,” meaning elephant in Swahili, aptly describes the camp’s surroundings where these magnificent creatures roam freely.

The camp boasts four tented suites, allowing guests to select from double or twin bed configurations. Each suite seamlessly merges luxury and nature, featuring a private indoor lounge area, an outdoor swimming pool, and a dining space on the veranda.
