Goliath Camp - Stretch Ferreira Safaris

Mana Pools

Browse listings

Stretch Ferreira is one of Africa's top guides and has been operating safaris in Mana Pools for more than three decades.  His knowledge of and interaction with the animals of the park is legendary.

Stretch Ferreira Safaris operates out of Goliath Camp, his luxury tented camp on the banks of the Zambezi River in the heart of Mana Pools National Park and World Heritage Site.

Reminiscent of an “Out of Africa” era the re-designed camp consists of 7 East-African style tents, blending seamlessly into the bush whilst still offering guests a luxurious experience.

The beds have comfortable mattresses, high-quality linen and mosquitos nets. There are hot outdoor showers, flush toilets and running water in the basins. The entire camp area has soft river sand to walk on and guests can enjoy a casual and barefoot stay!

There is a covered public lounge area and an al-fresco dining room, as well as a large campfire area to enjoy stories under brightly-starred nights and braai (barbeque) nights with chef Stretch himself.

Exceptional wildlife experiences from the camp include guided walks, game drives, close encounters with wildlife, day canoe trips and fishing.

If you have the opportunity in life to visit Africa even once to view and photograph the vast array of animals in the wild, then your first reservation should be to spend some time with Stretch. I can tell you photographs you see on his website in no way do justice to the reality of "bum crawling" up to male lions or almost sitting under the front legs of Boswell one of the most iconic bull elephants in all of Africa. That is part of a normal day with Stretch and Alister Hull who are both iconic figures in the African Safri Guide community and to spend time in their company is not just and experience but a privilege. Don't think about it, just do it, this is a once in a lifetime experience but you will want to visit again. Thanks very much for your very kind review. The old "Muppets" are delighted that you had an enjoyable safari and we look forward to you returning for more "treatment"!
