Sapi Reserve

Sapi Reserve lies adjacent to the renowned Mana Pools National Park, an unspoiled wilderness within an iconic wildlife region of Zimbabwe with diverse landscapes, abundant wildlife, and a commitment to conservation. 

More Than a Luxury Safari, A Conservation Success Story

Located in the heart of Zimbabwe, Sapi Reserve is a private game reserve that offers guests the opportunity to immerse themselves in the natural beauty of Africa. With over 125,000 acres of pristine wilderness, Sapi Reserve is home to a wide variety of wildlife as well as many other species. Boasting a pristine and untouched wilderness that captivates with its raw beauty. Traverse the undulating plains and rolling hills. Marvel at the ancient baobab trees that stand as sentinels of time and the meandering waterways that attract a wealth of wildlife. The changing seasons bring different landscapes to life, with lush greenery during the wet season and golden hues during the dry season. Sapi Reserve offers a true escape from the modern world, allowing you to rediscover the harmony between humans and the natural world.

The Luxury of Letting Go, and Awakening Your Senses

Unlock the essence of the reserve and its story, with exploration by day and night game drives, bush walks, canoeing and boat trips on the Zambezi River. The canoe trips are particularly rewarding, bringing you close to the elephants as they come down to the water’s edge to drink. Otherwise, venture into the wild on foot. Visit the legendary Mtawatawa Pan and learn more about this incredible ecosystem. The reserve has a large stillness of baobab trees, one of which is believed to be the final resting place of the personal paraphernalia of Chief Chikwenya including bows, arrows, and spears. The tree itself is estimated to be around twelve hundred years old and has decayed within, creating a huge hollow inside the bark walls – where more of the mystery seems to lie. Encounter massive elephant herds, stealthy leopards and the grace of prancing antelope. Sapi Reserve is home to a myriad of bird species, delighting avid birdwatchers with their vibrant colours and melodic calls too. 


Sapi Reserve offers a bespoke selection of accommodations that blend harmoniously with the natural surroundings, each providing a sanctuary where you can relax and rejuvenate after exhilarating wildlife encounters.
