  • What makes African Bush Camps stand out from the rest is the management’s support and training of their guides. I could not more highly recommend Africa Bush Camps. They have set the standard everyone else should be trying to achieve. They are excellence defined.

  • The hospitality of African Bush Camps is second to none.  I would encourage EVERYONE to visit Zimbabwe and stay with ABC! 

  • We arrived at Somalisa after 6 nights in the Mana Pools National Park to receive the now familiar ABC welcome: genuine smiles, warm greetings and peppermint-scented face flannels to wipe away the grime and dust.

  • Somalisa Expeditions has captured all the romance – and the wildness – of a true African safari experience. The carefully designed luxury camp sits in a grove of acacia trees, and is frequented by herds of elephants and, sometimes, lions.
