Potato Bush Camp

Lower Zambezi National Park, Zambia

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 is comprised of three well-appointed Canvas and Rosewood Safari Tents and also a 2-bedroom Family Tent. To complement the accommodation there is an open plan dining, bar and lounge area, which is accessed by all four Tents by way of raised timber boardwalks. This also enables the camp to stay open from the 1st of April through to early January, when the heavy rains really start. The camp hugely benefits from the nearby strong foundations, infrastructure and service levels that have been built up over the past 17 years by Sausage Tree Camp.

Potato Bush Camp offers professionally guided game drives, scenic canoeing and boat trips, educational walking safaris, exciting night drives and, of course, we love to fish. 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 you can appreciate the unspoiled wilderness of Zambia. A larger area can be covered in a shorter time frame, increasing the chance to find good game. The vehicles also allow those "up close and personal" experiences - our team of professional guides will ensure that it is not too close!
