Guided by professional rangers and trackers, the drives from Potato Bush Camp venture out into the Lower Zambezi National Park where an exhilarating display of large mammals and smaller animals can be encountered.
Nocturnal creatures include the notoriously elusive leopard, genet, civet, porcupine and the Giant Eagle Owl. Night drives are a spectacular experience that set out in search of these unique creatures, and often the big cats can be spotted on their hunt for prey. Listen to local tales of the stars as your guide introduces you to a world of unspoilt constellations.
Feel the soil of an untamed bush as you embark on a morning walking safari with a National Parks Wildlife Officer. The focus of these unique experiences is to bring you closer to the wild – so close that you can touch the leaves of the various trees and plants and watch as the giant ants scurry their way around large sand heaps. Follow the tracks of the previous night left on the pathways…hopefully to one of the larger mammals.
View game from a different perspective on a canoeing excursion on the Zambezi River. Ideal for first-time paddlers and the more experienced, highly qualified guides will take you to the banks of the river where you can see the lazy crocodiles. Drift along the river and watch as the land animals approach the water for a drink.
The perfect photographic opportunities await on a scenic boat cruise on the mighty Zambezi River. Wildlife exists in the form of floating hippo pods, crocodile populations basking in the sun, and occasionally families of elephant crossing the river. Sip on sundowners as you experience the perfect African sunset as its reflection disappears on the liquid horizon in front of you.
The Zambezi River is known for its large population of the stubborn Tigerfish – known for putting up a fight. Fishing at this Zambia bush camp takes place on a strict catch-and-release basis and the camp supplies all fishing equipment.
