Located in a prime position next to sister property Sausage Tree Camp, Potato Bush Camp offers panoramic views of the Zambezi River. The camp, which is linked by raised timber walkways, consists of three canvas and rosewood tents, each with folding doors that open up to a balcony with a hammock and private plunge pool. There is also a two-bedroom family tent with a spacious living and dining area, a fully-stocked bar and fridge, and a large plunge pool. In the evening, camp guests gather in the boma for a hearty dinner and share tales of the day's adventures. There are also two welcoming lounge areas and, by night, a campfire is prepared right on the edge of the river.
Activities at the camp include game drives, walking safaris led by expert local guides and canoe trips along the Chifungulu Channel, which starts 100 metres downstream from the camp - a real highlight of a stay in the Lower Zambezi. You may also have the opportunity to enjoy an atmospheric lunch served on a pristine sandbank in the middle of the Zambezi.
At the end of a rewarding day of wildlife adventures, enjoy pre-dinner drinks under the stars before settling in for a delicious meal, fusing regional and international specialities. Dinner can be take on the viewing deck, in the open-air main lodge or even from the comfort of your suite, before you settle in for a night under canvas in the most unforgettable surroundings.
