Stretch Ferreira Safaris
Stretch Ferreira Safaris is owned and run by Stretch Ferreira – a professional safari guide who has over 35 years of experience, and a reputation as one of the finest guides in Africa. Described as a “living legend” Stretch has been guiding walking safaris in Mana Pools for most of his life, and has a special affinity with the animals of the area. As in nature, seasons change, and Stretch has started a new season re-branding Goliath Safaris as Stretch Ferreira Safaris. He continues to conduct walking safaris from the same spot in Mana Pools called Goliath Camp, along with his team of highly experienced professional guides.
Stretch’s priority is first and foremost the safety of his guests. With his decades of experience, he is able to judge how close he can bring them to watch the animals of Mana Pools. Each and every day is different, and each animal is different, and the utmost care and respect are always shown to the wildlife on his walks. Stretch is described as an “elephant whisperer” and has personally named many of the elephant bulls of Mana Pools. However, please note that it is not a given that all guests will be able to get an up close and personal encounter.
The camp is situated in a shaded grove on the banks of the Zambezi River with 7 East-African style tents. Reminiscent of an “Out of Africa” era, the tented camp blends seamlessly into the bush whilst still offering guests a luxurious experience.
There are beds with comfortable mattresses, high-quality linen and mosquitos nets to provide for a well-deserved rest after many miles of walking. 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 large campfire area to enjoy stories under brightly-starred nights as well as braai nights with chef Stretch himself, a covered public lounge area and an al-fresco dining room. Only 12 guests at a time are catered for in the camp, so there is more than ample space and privacy for all.
