Potato Bush Camp

Potato Bush Camp lies adjacent to its sister camp, the world-renowned Sausage Tree Camp.  With a stunning panoramic view overlooking the Zambezi River and escarpment, this site is nestled under Mahogany, Sausage, Winter Thorn and Acacia Tortillas Trees, which provide excellent shade.

Potato Bush Camp has an excellent location within the heart of the protected and game rich Lower Zambezi National Park.  The Camp has no boundaries and the animals are free to wander straight through and around the camp making the comfort of your tent the ideal wildlife viewing sanctuary. 

Potato Bush Camp consists of 3 Luxury Safari Tents and 1 Two-bedroom Family Tent and sets high standards in the new era for small exclusive luxury tented safari camps!

The African contemporary design perfectly balances the raw structural integrity and natural beauty of solid Zambian Rosewood and dramatically compliments the use of traditional canvas.

The “Boma” can comfortably dine 12 guests and there is a well stocked bar and two comfortable lounge areas for guests to relax and enjoy the stunning views over the mighty Zambezi River.

The campfire is well positioned under the stars, right on the edge of the river bank and is the only place one actually touches the ground, as the entire camp is linked with raised timber walkways.

Safari Experience

Potato Bush Camp offers some of the finest game viewing in natural habitats anywhere in Africa.

Its location within the Lower Zambezi National Park on the banks of the Zambezi River means that game viewing activities take place both on the water, by boat and canoes, and on land by four-wheel drive game viewing vehicles or on foot (bush walks).

The camp is well equipped with game viewing vehicles, boats and canoes allowing us to easily cater to the personal and individual needs of all our guests.

Potato Bush Camp employs the most knowledgeable and experienced guides.

All of our guides are fully trained, licensed and have many years of experience, ensuring that the highest quality of guiding and safety standards are achieved.

We pride ourselves on our development programme for our junior guides.

Wildlife & Birdlife

The Lower Zambezi National Park has a large variety of faunal species including mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and insects, distributed in varying densities and in complex and diverse eco-systems.

During your stay in the Lower Zambezi, you will have a very good chance of seeing the following large mammals: elephant, hippo, buffalo, waterbuck, zebra, impala, bushbuck and kudu.

Of the carnivores, there are solid numbers of leopard, lion and hyena.

Other commonly seen animals are wild dog (african hunting dog), serval and the african wild cat.

Smaller animals include the side striped jackal, dwarf, slender & banded mongoose, large spotted genet, civet, tree squirrel, honey badger, porcupine and aardvark.

These animals are widely dispersed during the wet season because there is plenty of water and forage.

In the dry season they are largely concentrated along the valley floor, the banks of the river and islands in the Zambezi River.
