Is the Tembo Plains Camp for Me?
Tembo Plains, meaning “Elephant Plains” is built in the thick riverine forest on the edge of the Zambezi River, in the private 128,000 hectare Sapi Reserve, which is just east of Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools National Park
Offering six tented suites, Tembo Plains Camp offers guests the choice of 4 double or twin bed configuration suites, each with their own private indoor lounge area and outdoor swimming pool, verandah and outdoor dining area.
The beautiful Zanji Suite at Tembo Plains, comprises two suites with private shared lounge and dining area is available. All rooms enjoy expansive en-suite bathroom facilities including indoor baths, showers and double vanities.
What makes Tembo Plains Camp’s design genuinely unique is the combination of canvas and stone walls, an architectural reference to the Zimbabwe Ruins. Outside this packstone wall design continues along the back of the guest accommodation, affording guests greater privacy whilst leaving uninterrupted views of Zambezi river flowing just meters away.
Painted dogs (wild dogs), lions and leopards are seen increasingly whilst buffalo, and of course, elephants, which are often seen daily in front of the camp. Activities include canoeing and boating on the Zambezi River and guided wildlife viewing drives in open vehicles and walks.
