Potato Bush Camp is a luxurious intimate camp with just 4 tents on raised wooden walkways. With great views of the river and a well-stocked bar, it is, much like its sister camp (Sausage Tree Camp), a great place to spend some time watching what animals are around camp. With plunge pools and modern rooms, you can remain in camp to enjoy it whist the wildlife passes your doorstep.

The relaxed and friendly vibe
April – November
Yes (but can be temperamental)
The four rooms at Potato Bush Camp all have their own plunge pools and river views, it is the perfect place to relax between activities. The room has a private deck whereby you will find a plunge pool overlooking the river. During the day this is open, at night it is shut for security but it makes a good spot to spend a lazy afternoon taking in the wonders of the bush.
The birding here is exceptional, take a canoeing safari down the Chifungulu Channel where you can spot all the water birds as well as many others. Due to the low volume of tourists and the nature of a water activity you can get up close to the birds without disturbing them. Watch as kingfishers dart in and out of the water, goliath herons stalk the fish and beautiful weavers build their nests at the water edges. Amazing.
The staff here are exceptionally friendly and welcoming, from the ever present bartender of an ever full bar to the knowledgeable waiters who bring the delicious food. The guides here switch between their sister camp Sausage Tree Camp so the standard is of a high nature and all are exceptional in spotting nature and entertaining at drinks stops.
