Goliath Camp

Goliath Camp is a seasonal tented bush camp set on the banks of the Zambezi River in the heart of Mana Pools National Park.

Goliath Camp is operated by Stretch Ferreira Safaris, an established Zimbabwean safari company owned and run by professional safari guide Andrew ‘Stretch’ Ferreira. It offers a genuine ‘owner guided’ experience which will appeal to travellers who would enjoy spending time in the bush with a very experienced and charismatic safari host. Stretch has operated in the Mana Pools region of Zimbabwe since the mid 1980s and was one of the early pioneers of canoe trails and tented safaris through this World Heritage site. His camp is well run, with very good food and service (all meals are taken communally), but the seasonal style of the camp is still fairly simple, offering a true bush experience. One of the highlights of a stay is approaching big game on foot with Stretch, who is familiar with a few relaxed elephant bulls and also comfortable approaching predators on foot.
