REVIEWS FROM OUR GUESTS

  • 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. 

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

    Mjohchi
  • 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.

  • It’s human nature to seek out a trip that nobody else has experienced, and this is where high-end travel outfitter African Bush Camps comes in

    Condé Nast Traveler
  • 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.

Lolebezi has been mentioned on the 2023 Travel + Leisure “Where to Go” list as one of the best places to visit in 2023. ✨⁠

This wildlife-rich destination is the newest addition to our luxury camp collection, the luxurious eight-suite camp, which we opened inside the UNESCO national park and on the banks of the Zambezi River in June 2022, is an ideal base from which to explore Lower Zambezi. ⁠

With dramatic landscapes, the richness of wildlife and fauna, incredible architecture, and intelligent design that marries nature and interior design. Lolebezi encapsulates everything you expect from a safari (and more) while fulfilling all your desires for a luxurious and picturesque getaway. 🐘⁠
