African Bush Camps

African Bush Camps Camps In the Okavango Delta

Founded by the inspirational Beks Ndlovu, African Bush Camps has 15 camps in Zimbabwe, Botswana and Zambia and the company continues to grow. Beks is a qualified professional guide who started his safari career in this home country of Zimbabwe. He had a passion and a vision of enabling guides to be more creative and imaginative and this led him to start his first camp, Somalisa Camp, and Beks has never looked back. Although the company continues to grow steadily, African Bush Camps remains privately owned and run.

As would be expected from an operator founded by a top guide, the level of guiding at African Bush Camps is of the highest order. Their guides stand out for their excellent knowledge, passion for the wilderness and engaging demeanour.

In Botswana, African Bush Camps has six camps situated in a range of areas including the Okavango, Linyanti and Nxai Pan.

In the Okavango, Khwai Leadwood and Khwai Bush Camp are set on the game rich community concession of Khwai in the eastern Okavango. Khwai Leadwood is the smarter camp, while Khwai Bush Camps is a more simple camp particularly aimed at families. In the Linyanti there are three camps, Linyanti Bush Camp is a traditional bush camp, Linyanti Expeditions offers a more adventurous safari and is aimed at adults only and Liyanti Ebony, which is aimed at families.

The latest addition to the Botswana portfolio is Migration Expeditions, a mobile camp set up in Nxai Pan National Park which offers an authentic and adventurous base to experience the spectacular zebra migration which arrived here in the summer months with the first rains.

Thorntree River Lodge in Livingstone, the Zambian side of Victoria Falls, is an extremely luxurious and stylish lodge on the river and a wonderful spot to start or end a safari.

In Zimbabwe, African Bush Camps has a comprehensive range of safari camps across a number of national parks.

African Bush Camps runs and funds the ABC Foundation. African Bush Camps makes a contribution of USD $10 for every night a guest stays in one of their camps. The foundation runs a number of projects support community empowerment, conservation and education.

Educational support includes scholarship programmes, workshops and assisting with infrastructure projects in local community schools. Conservation work includes a number of programmes with local communities where human wildlife mitigation techniques are developed and run in partnership with the community. Community Empowerment is realised through the Foundation’s Income Generation Projects. Communities are encouraged to channel existing talents and skills and supported to moving these into more profitable platforms. The foundation provides business training, entrepreneurial skills, money management as well mentorship. Through all these programmes the focus is on developing a sustainable source of income and development for a higher quality of life.
