John’s Camp

Mana Pools National Park

John’s Camp began receiving guests in 2017 and is a small, non-permanent camp in Mana Pools National Park. The site makes use of one of the parks campsites on the banks of the Zambezi River and affords some spectacular views of wildlife from the camp. The camp remains in place to the end of November when the safari season ends.

The camp has been named after the famous safari guide John Stevens who tries to spend as much time in camp during the safari season in Mana Pools. He chose the camps current location at Nyamepi One campsite due to the incredible density of wildlife in the area and the location may change in the future. Views from camp over the Zambezi River floodplains are mind blowing and the escarpment in the distance completes the atmosphere of a perfect safari location.


John’s Camp has just six Meru-style tents and with dedicated staff the service is both very personal but also quite relaxed, you feel at home here. The tents have been well planned and designed to cater for almost every guest need, double or twin beds, solar powered reading lights and a tea / coffee facilities.

The tents en-suite bathroom is accessed by a zip door at the rear and is open to the African skies. Completely screened off for privacy the bucket shower is typically old African pioneer style and a magical experience. Hot water is provided on request. At the door of each tent is a small shaded deck with folding chairs for relaxing during the day – don’t be surprised if an Elephant or 5 wander through the camp!

Children are welcome from 12 years and older.
