FAQs

From its location amid the wild and wonderful Lower Zambezi National Park to its exclusivity, Potato Bush is an ideal location for exclusive travel, romance and families. It is an intimate space with just three luxury tents and one two-bedroom house. Potato Bush is the perfect space for a completely exclusive safari experience.

Everything is connected via raised walkways, making this an ideal location to book out in its entirety. With world-class private guides, free transfer flights included with every four-night stay, private plunge pools in every room, and unforgettable activities such as river lunches, Potato Bush Camp channels much of the luxury of Sausage Tree Camp. However, this local favourite also keeps much of its original bush feel, which may be why the wildlife still wanders freely around the camp.

Potato Bush Camp is unfenced, allowing the wildlife of the Lower Zambezi to roam freely, often stopping to graze right on your doorstep.

3 x Luxury Tents
2 x King, 1 x Double/twin, private plunge pool.

  • How do I get to the properties?

    Check out our interactive map on this website, or get in touch with our reservations team for a helpful itinerary specific to your needs.

    The main international airports you are likely to find useful when connecting to our properties are in Johannesburg, Nairobi, Lusaka, and Lilongwe.

  • Should I be taking a malaria preventative?

    Some of our properties are in Malaria areas. Please consult your health care professional regarding prophylactics for malaria at least 6 weeks before your trip or as early as possible.

    We take every precaution to ensure guests are not bitten by mosquitoes. We employ regularly maintained, amply sized and custom-made mosquito nets, fans, and supply repellent. However, we also suggest that guests cover up in the evenings.

  • How much luggage can I bring?

    Your luggage allowance will most likely be determined by the smallest carrier on your route. Please be aware that many charter flights (small planes) will only allow 12 kg per person. Luggage allowance on International flights (from Johannesburg for instance) will be anything between 20 and 30 kg on Economy tickets.

  • What if I get sick?

    Many of our staff members are 1st Aid trained. Please ensure your medical insurance is up to date – should serious medical attention be required Speciality Emergency Services will attend to guests. For Covid-19 specific information please head to our Covid-19 information page.

  • What if I’m travelling with children?

    A luxury safari in Africa is an unforgettable experience for the whole family, and our teams are experts in keeping you all safe and entertained. We have special rates for children and family rooms at most properties. Our age limit ranges from 9 to no limit, depending on which property you visit.

  • What is the best time to go on safari?

    The most popular months are between May and September when the weather in Southern Africa is cool and dry, and the wildlife is easily visible in the thinner vegetation. Depending on the floods, Chisa Busanga is only open from June to November. However, the Green Season is an incredible time to spot baby wildlife, unforgettable sunsets, and Africa’s scenery in a burst of colour you don’t get for the rest of the year. We also have special Green Season rates.
