The brand new Potato Bush Camp, a sister property to Sausage Tree Camp and located nearby, has recently opened up as a new luxury option in Lower Zambezi.

As this property is brand new we haven’t had a chance to visit it yet, but here is what we know about it:

Potato Bush Camp has got three luxury safari tents that are furnished with double beds draped in mosquito netting. Each tent has got a lounge area with a small table facing a large window, offering views over the surrounding area. All also have a shelf where guests can store clothes and suitcases.

The en-suite bathrooms offer a twin shower, bath, his and her basins and a flushing toilet. Outside, the private deck is a perfect place for relaxing in the deck chairs and swimming in your own private plunge pool.

The camp has also got a further two-bedroom family tent, complete with huge central living and dining area. There is also a fully stocked fridge and private balcony area, making this great for a family or party of four adults. The balcony area includes a swimming pool and deck chairs to relax in. There are two en-suite bathrooms available, equipped with twin showers bath, his and her basins and a flushing toilet.

All the tents are linked with the main area by raised timber board walks. The main area itself consists of a large semi open tent complete with a large communal dinning table, a lounge area and a bar.

The activities at Potato Bush Camp focus on game-drives (day and night), walking safaris, canoeing, scenic boat cruises and fishing.

Our view

Potato Bush Camp is a new camp and so none of the Expert Africa team has had the chance to visit it yet. Though being linked to the good quality Sausage Tree, which we have known for many years, we hope that this property will also be a great place to stay.
