John’s Camp

Five authentic Meru safari tents in Mana Pools, away from the beaten path

John’s Camp

Safari tents on the Zambezi

On the southern bank of the Zambezi River, in the always wild-rich Mana Pools National Park,the exclusive John's Camp is situated. Authentic Meru safari tents are tucked deep between lush vegetation and large mahogany and ebony trees, far away from the inhabited world. Here you will spend your days amid herds of elephants, buffalo, kudo, moose, waterbuck, zebra, antelope and a rich bird life.

Walking safaris, canoe safaris and 4x4 safaris promise you unique wildlife encounters. And at night, after a delicious meal under the stars, the adventure continues. Only canvas separates you from the nocturnal wilderness.
