Potato Bush Camp

Set in the game-rich Lower Zambezi National Park, stylish Potato Bush Camp overlooks the mighty Zambezi River which fans out into a spellbinding mosaic of densely forested islands and channels. Set deep within the reserve, the camp’s closest neighbour is its sister – the celebrated Sausage Tree Camp, so gameviewing experiences in the area feel delightfully exclusive.

The 4 beautifully appointed guest tents nestle beneath spreading shade trees, with a two-bedroom unit designed specifically to accommodate families. Raised boardwalks connect accommodations to the central dining, bar and lounge where meals are served and excursions depart.

Activities at Potato Bush Camp include game drives led by personable, professional guides with the opportunity to explore the park after dark to witness nocturnal species such as pangolin, genet and honey badger. You might even spot lions hunting! The Lower Zambezi is renowned for canoeing so don’t miss this opportunity to drift along admiring birdlife and animals around the water. Walking safaris are also possible – a thrill – whilst boat cruises are a very relaxing means of appreciating a blazing African sunset.

Zambia Overview

Why should I travel to Zambia? Apart from being the site of the magnificent Victoria Falls, Zambia also offers game-rich wildlife parks that are relatively unspoiled by mass tourism. For the more adventurous, there are walking safaris and canoeing trips along the Zambezi River.

When is the best time to see animals in Zambia? Gameviewing is best during the dry season from Jun-Oct when the animals congregate at remaining waterholes.

What is the climate like in Zambia? There are 3 distinct seasons – cool and dry from May-July (23°-25°C), hot and dry from August-October (30°-40°C), and warm and wet from November-April (28°-35°C).

What can I combine Zambia with? Zambia’s neighbours – Botswana, Malawi or Zimbabwe – which all offer amazing scenery and wildlife. Or combine with South Africa and explore picturesque Cape Town, Table Mountain and the Cape Winelands.

How to get to Zambia? There are regular flights daily from Johannesburg in South Africa to Lusaka, where you can board connecting flights to a range of safari camps. There are also regular flights from Jo’burg into Livingstone, a large town close to the Victoria Falls. It is also possible to fly to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and then transfer by road to Zambia.
