Mahove Tented Camp

A small tented camp on the banks of Runde River in Zimbabwe

Experience wild camping on safari in Zimbabwe

Enjoy a safari adventure in Gonarezhou National Park, one of Zimbabwe’s quietest areas.

On the banks of Zimbabwe’s Runde River lies Mahove tented camp, one of only three camps situated in Gonarezhou National Park. The river and lush surrounding areas attract a wide variety of wildlife, including elephant herds, packs of wild dogs and many game species. This camp is the ideal destination for travellers who want a proper wilderness camping experience in the African Bush. Mahove tented camp is seasonal, and is open between May to October, and is accessed by air flight and road transfer.

Accommodation consists of four spacious tents that are placed along the river banks. Each one has twin beds and an en-suite bathroom, with an outside seating area where you can sit and watch the wildlife going about their day to day lives. Main areas include an open-sided dining and lounge area, although meals can also be eaten outside under the African sky, with a chat around the campfire after dinner in the evenings.

The focus of activities at Mahove Tented Camp is game drives and bush walks, both of which allow guests the fantastic opportunity to get up close to Zimbabwe’s fascinating wildlife. There is the option to combine these two activities into one excursion, where you will get out of the vehicle at various intervals to explore areas on foot that cannot be reached by vehicle. With only three camps in a 5,000km game reserve, experiences have a private, intimate feel. You may be able to embark on boat and canoe trips, depending on the river’s water levels.
