A unique experience of real Africa

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.
