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.

  • 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.

“Great location for Hwange National Park , delightful staff , great food and very comfortable accommodation at Somalisa ✨

Hwange National park is packed with wildlife and basing yourself at a good camp is essential to enjoy the area . Early starts on cold mornings are made easy with blankets and hot water bottles .

Be prepared to see elephant in camp at very close quarters as well as in the Park . Our top class quide was great ensuring we enjoyed as many sightings as possible . Sundowners were a joy !

Dinner , in fact all the food , was professionally prepared , varied and delicious . All the staff made our stay very memorable . Just fabulous”

Today we highlight an initiative that is very close to our hearts. Situated in the Mabele region of Chobe Botswana, is a beautiful small business run by some amazing women, called Vuche - Vuche.

The Vuche Vuche Basket Weaving project aims to empower women from the local community through basket weaving. 🧺

This initiative creates employment opportunities whilst displaying Botswana’s heritage and
culture through beautiful crafts. Baskets are for sale at ABC trading posts, and guests can visit Vuche Vuche to learn basket weaving and experience traditional dances. 🌍

To help support these amazing ladies and to purchase your very own vuche-vuche basket, next time you're in Botswana make sure to look out for these lovely baskets and support a great initiative! 🇧🇼

    The Feeling of Safari- My Recent Trip to Botswana & Zambia

    Those seeking safari are usually in want of a few key things: incredible animal sightings, diverse activities like game drives and mokoro rides, and beautiful scenery – be it rivers, savannas, or waterfalls. And while these things are all incredible, and certainly a joy to experience, safari is about so much more. Safari, to me, is a feeling – something that you cannot see in a photo or describe to a friend.
