African Safari

Boutique safaris, camping safaris and African safari experiences

Boutique african safari experiences in Zimbabwe

Welcome to Umdingi Safaris, where your dream is our reality. We specialise in authentic safari experiences that go beyond your average commercial holiday. We’re passionate about getting up close and personal with the beautiful African wilderness to truly experience everything that Zimbabwe has to offer through our camping safari packages.

Camping Safaris

You won’t find anything like our boutique safaris. Our authentic camping safaris truly are a one-in-a-lifetime experience. You’ll sleep under the stars in our camping accommodation, eat dinner by a roaring fire, and drift off to sleep listening to the call of the wild – before waking up to a hot shower and freshly prepared breakfast. You’ll come closer to nature than ever before, and truly experience the romance 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 your dream safari experience here, please get in touch with us. We’ll get to know you and create a boutique safari experience.

Let us ask you some questions

Meet your expert African safari guide

We only take small groups of travellers on each of our safari trips. So, you’ll have complete access to your expert African safari guide – in most cases, the owner of Umdingi himself, Clint.
 

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 to your African safari guide. He’ll be able to tell you about the flora and fauna, the animal life, and even the local Zimbabweans.
