Potato Bush Camp

Lower Zambezi National Park

Potato Bush Camp’s location in the Chiawa Game Management Area that borders Lower Zambezi National Park ensures spectacular wildlife viewing opportunities. The camp looks out over the confluence of the Chifungulu and and Zambezi Rivers that provide panoramic views of the bush and wildlife.

The camps sister, Sausage Tree Camp, is more luxurious and both are open for a longer period of the safari season. Raised walkways connect the guest areas to the main lodge for both safety and to keep your feet dry as the rains begin. The main guest area has been raised onto a wooden deck that looks down onto the river and animals that come down to drink. A bar, lounge area and communal dinner table all have excellent views by day and night.

There is a sandy path that leads away from the main area to the campfire that has comfortable chairs for evening drinks or morning coffee as the sun rises.

Luxury Tents

The three luxury tents have double beds that have been placed in the center of the room directly in front of the doors for views of the river from your bed. A private deck with deck chairs and a private plunge pool  is a great place to relax during the day with a book.

The en-suite bathrooms have a partially open shower and a large window for great views out onto the river.

A two bed-roomed family tent has a large main living and dining area that is ideal for friends or a small family. The private deck has it’s own swimming pool and deck chairs and each room has it’s own en-suite bathroom.
