African Safari

Bespoke, boutique camping and other safari options in Zimbabwe

Boutique african safari experiences in Zimbabwe

Umdingi Safaris specialises in authentic safari experiences that go beyond your average African holiday. We’re passionate about getting up close and personal with the beautiful African bush to truly experience everything that Zimbabwe has to offer through our special camping safari packages.

Camping Safaris

You won’t find anything like our boutique camping safaris, truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. You’ll sleep under the stars in our comfortable tents, eat dinner by a roaring fire, and drift off to sleep listening to the nocturnal sounds of the Zimbabwean bush – before waking up to a hot shower and freshly prepared breakfast. You’re guaranteed to come closer to nature than ever before, and experience the best that the African wilderness has to offer.

Boutique safaris tailored to you

At Umdingi, we design every single trip around the individual needs of our adventurers. So, if you don’t see quite what you’re looking for, please feel free to get in touch with us. We’ll get to know you a bit better, and then with your input, will create your bespoke dream African safari.

Meet CLint – owner of Umdingi, and your guide

We only take small groups of travellers on each of our intimate safaris. So, you’ll have full access to your guide – in most cases, the owner of Umdingi himself, Clint. He will be your host and available around the clock during your safari.

Zimbabwe local guide:

Clint is a Zimbabwe local who grew up adventuring in the African wilderness. And he’s been running safaris and other trips around Africa for over a decade. He’s also a renowned host – bringing luxury personal touches to every trip in order to make sure his guests feel at home and welcome.

You’ll be able to ask unlimited questions of your guide. He’ll be able to tell you all about the flora and fauna, the animal life, and even the local Zimbabweans.

What’s included in the Umdingi African safari?

This always depends on the individual customer and their needs – no two safaris are ever the same at Umdingi! But here’s an idea of what you can expect when you book a boutique safari with us:

Choose from half-day, full-day or multi-day safari packages.
Half-day safaris are five hours (choose from sunrise – midday or afternoon – sunset).
Half-day safaris include one packed meal, snacks and drinks.
Multi-day safari trips are all-inclusive – all food, beverages, camping equipment and transport will be provided.
You’ll be accompanied by a local, experienced safari guide.
Hot water showers.
All cutlery and dining apparatus.

Some things to note before you go on a safari


Your safety is our absolute priority. So, you will be fully briefed on how to keep yourself and others safe when you arrive.


Make sure to bring plenty of skin-cover – sunhats, long sleeves, sarongs etc. But bear in mind it will be very hot, so loose, flowing fabrics like cotton are best. 


Bring a camera if you’d like, but please no flashes.


Don’t wear any bright colours – stick to natural shades of brown, khaki, tan, grey and olive green.


When booking your African safari experience, you’ll video chat with Umdingi owner, Clint who will provide you with full information about how to prepare for your holiday.


We know you’ll have an idea of the animals you’d like to see in the wild. And whilst we do everything in our power to help you witness the animals you’ve dreamed about your whole life, this often comes down to luck and a lot of patience.
