Just a short drift downstream from its sister camp, Potato Bush Camp is the brainchild of the renowned Sausage Tree operation. There are just four tented rooms, one of which is a two bedroom family tent, all located under the shade of sausage, winterthorn and mahogany trees. Each of the tents have indoor and outdoor showers, large decks and private plunge pools, offering high levels of comfort that stop just short of the grandiose Sausage Tree approach. There is a large, open plan dining and lounge area that is accessed by raised boardwalks connected to each tent, allowing the camp to remain open up to early January, with a nine month operating period.
Game drives, boating and fishing are all on offer, but for canoeing and walking safaris guests will still have to book time at Sausage Tree. Diminutive and intimate with a strong personal touch, Potato Bush is reminiscent of some of the South Luangwa bushcamps in style and ambience, with the added bonus of the Zambezi’s constant presence. Potato Bush also offers excellent value for money for a camp situated deep inside the park.
