Overview of Potato Bush Camp

Tucked away under huge trees on the banks of the Zambezi River, Potato Bush Camp is the sister lodge to nearby Sausage Tree Camp. It has the distinction of being one of the few lodges set inside Zambia’s game-packed Lower Zambezi National Park, long a favourite under-the-radar destination for safari aficionados.

Featuring only three huge tented suites and a 4-sleeper family tent, this camp promises a very intimate and personalised safari experience for honeymooners, groups of friends and adventurous families. And with its remote setting at the heart of big game country, the opportunities for wildlife viewing at Potato Bush Camp are fantastic, not least from the comfort of the unfenced camp itself. Although it is named after a shrub that gets pretty purple-blue flowers, Potato Bush Camp actually lies in the shade of tortilis and mahogany trees, with beautiful solid Zambian rosewood used in the lodge’s fixtures and furniture.

A wide variety of activities ensures that the most is made of this spectacular area. Morning and afternoon/evening game drives set the pace and guided walks, boat safaris and canoeing expeditions in Canadian-style canoes are also on offer, helping you gain a new perspective on the Zambezi’s teeming ecosystems. Bird watchers will be amazed by the birdlife (especially southern carmine bee-eaters) while anglers will be keen to take on the challenge of catching the fearsome tigerfish (all necessary tackle is provided).
