Potato Bush Camp lies adjacent to it’s sister camp, the world-renowned Sausage Tree Camp and hugely benefits from the nearby strong foundations, infrastructure and service levels that have been built up since 1996 by 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 tortillis trees, which provide excellent shade. Potato Bush Camp offers professionally guided game drives, scenic canoeing and boat trips, educational walking safaris, exciting night drives and, of course, fishing.

The Camp consists of three Luxury Safari Tents and one Two-bedroom Family House. The three Luxury Tents are extremely spacious and have en-suite bathrooms with twin showers, twin basins and a full size four-claw bath tub. Large Rosewood folding doors lead onto the balcony which hosts a two-person hammock and a private plunge pool, with well-appointed furniture to compliment the ambience and architecture of the tents. 

Experience & Activities

Game drives are the most successful way to see a good variety of wildlife, both large and small. Visiting more areas, and witnessing the diversity of the Lower Zambezi National Park, one can appreciate the unspoiled wilderness of Zambia. Night drives allow guests to experience the nocturnal animals, including the elusive Leopard, Genet, Civet, Porcupine and Giant Eagle Owl. Walking allows guests to search for the smaller creatures, learn about the trees, the plants and examine the different tracks and signs.

As one of the few privileged camps based inside the National Park, Potato Bush Camp is able to offer guests the opportunity to canoe down the most stunning section of the Zambezi River, the 14km long “Chifungulu Channel” starts just 100m downstream of the camp. Potato Bush Camp operates scenic boat trips using six metre aluminium river cruisers. Designed for river systems, they are the perfect boat for the Zambezi River as sandbanks make navigation on the water very difficult.

Accommodations

Luxury Safari Tent: The three Luxury Safari Tents are extremely spacious and have en-suite bathrooms with twin showers, twin basins and a full size four-claw bath tub. Large folding doors lead onto the large balcony which hosts a 2-person hammock and a private plunge pool, with well-appointed furniture to complement the ambience and architecture of the safari tents. Two of the Luxury Safari Tents are furnished with king-size beds while the third Safari Tent is a twin. All beds are covered with large walk around four-poster mozi nets and each fitted with a fan.

Family House: The Two-bedroom Family House is a massive 21m wide perfectly designed “safari tent”. This offers a huge central living area, dining and balcony area which divides the two bedrooms. Both bedrooms have their own en-suite bathrooms with twin showers, twin basins and large four-claw bath tubs (with a view). To accompany the architectural grandeur of this luxury house, it also offers a large plunge pool, fully stocked bar and fridge, private dining table and furniture that complements both the style of the house and the surrounding environment. Perfect for any family or party of 4 adults. Extra beds can be added.
