  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

The African elephant or “ellie” as we’re fond of calling it, is the largest animals walking the Earth.

They can be found across 36 countries in Africa, however the majority of their population is now located in Southern Africa, namely Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia. The African elephant thrives in lowland, montane forests, flood plains, woodland and savanna.
