Stretch Ferreira Safaris - Goliath Camp

Goliath Camp is situated on the banks of the Zambezi River in a shaded grove of spectacular, Natal Mahogany, Sausage and Albida trees. Reminiscent of an “Out of Africa” era, the tented camp blends seamlessly into the bush whilst still offering guests a luxurious experience.

Access is via scheduled charter flights into Mana Main Airstrip from either Victoria Falls, Harare or other parks in the country. Road transfers from Harare or Lusaka to Chirundu followed by a boat transfer to Nyamepi, Mana Pools and a short drive to camp is also an option.


There are 7 East African Style Tents which have either twin or super king beds. Tent features include:

Outdoor en-suite bathroom with shower, flush toilet, vanity with basin and running water
King or Twin Beds with Mosquito Nets
Private Deck/Verandah 
Solar fans & lighting

Goliath Camp is set over looking the Zambezi with an open air dining room
Camp fire area (evenings & early morning coffee/porridge/snack)
Communal charging station

Walking Safaris, Game drives, Afternoon canoe trails, Fishing and Birding

Goliath Camp only accepts children from 12 years old and above
As a general rule Goliath Camp does not recommend children under 12 years of age on a safari for safety reasons, however, they can be flexible for private groups. If children in camp then Stretch will tailor his activities to suit.
For children sharing with parents there is one large tent which can accommodate 1 extra bed, otherwise if more than one child parents have to split up and share with a child each
