Tented Expeditions

Safari Style and Dining

We cater to any dietary requirements

Tented Expeditions offers its guests a very intimate and private tented safari experience.  The camp is a mobile one, carefully put up for each private booking with the feel of a bygone style of African adventure and travel under canvas – ambience and nostalgia of a classic safari period blends with all the comforts of a modern day journey.

Any stay in our camp will be accompanied by one of Zimbabwe’s top Professional Guides who will ensure that the guests will know and understand the meaning of a  ‘Hemingway experience’.  Immersed in a true wilderness surrounding, activities will include both walking safaris and game drives. 

As a team we have put years of experience into an emphasis and focus on what is important in a classic tented camp – location, style, comfort, ambience, great food, genuine and approachable staff and last but not least, some of the best professional guiding on the continent.

Many years of working in the Safari industry has afforded us the ability to design a camp that is both practical and comfortable but also has a very special style and ambience.  So many permanent camps today are designed in line with a hotel experience, the feel of what it really means to be on a safari has been forgotten.  Replaced by too many modern, new age concepts and cool designs! On safari one should be able to breathe, feel and smell the wilderness and the natural world around us, safari should be a real and intimate journey into Africa, its sounds, it's heartbeat and its soul. I believe our camp reflects all these important criteria and our owners and staff aim to provide something truly special and memorable.

Comfortable beds and linens, great food and select wines, flush toilets and unique bathroom set-up with the traditional “bucket shower” on order! Decor and style that reflects the safaris of a bygone era, ambience and lighting, stimulating conversation and caring staff that have worked for us for many years and are part of the family.
