Mokore Safaris

Save Valley, Zimbabwe

As you drive into the Mokore Main Camp you drive through a forest of tall Nyala Berry and Acacia trees, giving one the feeling of entering an enchanted woodland which soon opens up onto lush green lawns where our 6 stone, under thatch, chalets stand each with their own unique view.

Mokore is powered by electricity with back up generators that are on stand-by in case of power cuts. Our lodge’s water is pumped from a borehole and then run through a filter ensuring it's safe to drink.

The Mokore chalets consist of convertible twin to double beds, en-suite bathrooms with showers fed from the room’s stand-alone Rhodesian Boiler ensuring a hot shower after a busy day of safari. Every room also has its own verandah with an exquisite view of either the Turgwe River or forest of Giant Nyala Berry trees where one can sit and enjoy an early morning tea or coffee made in the comfort of their room.

At the end of the day, sipping a sun-downer on the dining room’s wooden deck is where the true essence of the Zimbabwean bush is felt. With the African sun setting off to the right over the Turgwe, the sound of the river flowing contently, wildlife coming down to drink before heading off to settle down for the night, it is hard for one not to feel at one with nature.

Dinner is served at the captain’s table, where you are able to share your day’s adventures with the other guests in camp; all meals are prepared by our trained safari chefs who guarantee delicious home-style meals.

After dinner, night caps and bush-tales are shared around the roaring camp fire.

Mokore Ranch is a place for the whole family to enjoy & experience the true Zimbabwean bush. It's where you can unwind from the world but most importantly become one with nature & with an array of activities, there is something for every member of the family.

Early morning and afternoon game-drives in a comfortable open game-viewer around the breath-taking Mokore Concession are a must! Get up close & personal with the wide variety of game which is guaranteed to be seen. You can also enjoy the spectacular scenery, which changes constantly from granite rock outcrops to acacia woodlands, mopane forest and riverine.

A treat is a visit to Zimbabwe’s largest Baobab, which is found near the Mokore Main Camp.

Take a trip down the banks of the Mokore River in search of the Crowned Eagle. The Mokore River happens to be the highest breeding density of this magnificent bird which almost guarantees your chances of spotting it.

Another recommended adventure is to the Majehwe Weir and see how many Hippos and Crocodiles you can spot.

Catch your dinner on one of the fishing trips to the Chishakwe Dam.This activity is sure to be fun for the whole family. Alternatively if fishing is not your 'thing' - bask in the African sun and watch the birdlife around the dam.

Guided bush walks, allow you to get up close and personal with the smaller beings of the bush, learn about tracks and spore, visit a Wild Dog dens where you are able to learn about the interesting structure of the pack.

Take a walk into history by visiting the ruins of the Umkondo Mine hole filled with water; take a walk through the deep-rooted skeleton club house, peak through old mine houses and visit the remains of the processing plant.

An end-of-the-day drink on the "sundowner rock" which overlooks the entire Mokore Ranch is a must to bring the days activities to a close.
