My husband and I travel often in Southern africa and have had the great fortune to visit many safari lodges over the years. In our view Potato has the best balance of the many available in Zambia. It's not super insane luxury nor is it miserly and marred by shortcuts and cost

Dear DebbieBurton80068, Thank you for taking the time to leave such a great review about your recent stay with us at Potato Bush Camp. It sounds like you have had the please of visiting many wonderful camps around Zambia and I am thrilled to read that you place us so highly. We are very fortunate to have such a prime location in the heart of the Lower Zambezi National Park and our guest tents were designed with this in mind to ensure for a very comfortable stay. I have taken on board your comments regards the guides knowledge when it comes to trees/plants but as you say 7 leopard sightings is defiantly enough to end your trip on a high note. I will pass on your kind words to Carol and the rest of the team and we do hope to welcome you back again soon. Regards, Jason and the Potato Bush Camp Team

We just returned back home to Hong Kong after spending 10 days touring Africa. The Potato Bush camp was our last stop. Being our first time to the continent, I must say we had low expectations, but the staff led by Charles and the entire team were extremely professional and the

Wow, it is hard to believe you could find a location as beautiful as this camp! From simply having breakfast overlooking the Zambezi to the wild game drives and fantastic fishing, every minute was loaded with African Magic! The food was great and you always felt so comfortable

"there are only 4 chalets, one of which has two bedrooms en suite. they all face the river and are in close proximity to each other."
"The Family room was great for our group, but all rooms have private plunge pools and overlook the river."
"All room are good, it's a bush camp!"
"All the rooms are lovely and secluded from each other."
"This is defiantly aimed at couples rather than families but still really wonderful time had by all"
