Great Plains Conservation

Great Plains is one of several independent safari companies that operate camps where we like to send our clients. They run excellent camps in Botswana, Kenya and Zimbabwe.

Background information

Great Plains is slightly different to other eco-tourism companies, most of which try to run a successful business while helping conservation at the same time. The first priority of Great Plains Conservation is to help conservation rather than making money. Their aim is to protect the world's wildlife, parks and wilderness that are threatened by the increase of populations and the advent of tourism.

The company was founded by National Geographic photographers, David and Beverley Joubert, and Colin Bell, the ex CEO of Wilderness Safaris. It has set up conservation projects in a number of diverse and threatened habitats in both Africa and around the Indian Ocean.

Great Plains is a very high-end luxury company, whose camps are of extremely good quality and situated in superb locations. The company is most famous for their Botswana camps but their camps in Kenya and Zimbabwe are also very good. Contenders for some of the best camps anywhere! 

Great Plains camps:

Duba Explorers

Located at the beating heart of the Okavango Delta, Duba Explorers has just six well-appointed tents, each with a private veranda. Guests enjoy expertly guided game drives and walks – and boating is possible too, weather permitting.

Mara Plains

Luxurious Mara Plains is the flagship property of Great Plains’ Mara camps. Situated in the Olare Motorogi Conservancy, it offers off-the-beaten-track vehicle safaris, cultural experiences, and hot air balloon rides!

Mara Expedition Camp

Packed with character and appealing to the adventurous traveller, this is a high-end deluxe tented property. Positioned on the border of two conservancies, Mara Expedition is a superb base from which to explore the Mara region.

Ol Donyo Lodge

Extremely comfortable and amazingly good value, this camp manages to retain a wonderfully adventurous feel in a reserve that is primarily known for its luxury.
Within Zambezi N.P., and just 16 kilometres from Victoria Falls, this comfy camp suits travellers wishing to divide their time between wildlife watching and Falls thrills. Each of the four guest tents boasts a private plunge pool!

Sapi Explorers Camp

Here, five explorers-style tents are set up along the banks of the mighty River Zambezi. Guests venture out on vehicle and walking safaris, canoe excursions, and boat trips. This is one of the most exciting camps in the Great Plains collection!

Sapi Springs Camp

With just three tents and a remote location, this camp provides exclusive game drives and walks within the wildlife-rich Sapi Concession. It has a lovely riverside setting too!
