Welcome to John's Camp

Named after renowned safari guide John Stevens, John's Camp is an authentic yet charming camp. It offers the most gorgeous view across a floodplain to the Zambezi River and the Zambian escarpment in the distance. A proper safari camp along the lines of Goliath Camp, Vundu and Zambezi Expeditions this is safari at its best. Whilst the experience is intimate and highly personalised guests will enjoy exceptional service, top notch guiding and great game viewing. John Stevens joined Zimbabwe National Parks over 50 years ago and has worked in and around Mana Pools ever since. The management of the camp is now under Robin Pope Safari's a Zambian safari company that has similar operating style and ethos of how safaris should be. They are a wonderful safari company, specialising in walking safaris in Zambia, Robin Pope himslef being an Africa safari guide icon and it is very exciting to have one of their camps on this side of the river. John is available to guide personally on request and at additional cost should you wish, but the camp resident guides, as with all Zimbabwe guides are fantastic!
