The prime location of Potato Bush Camp and Sausage Tree Camp ensures the following:
Game-viewing — we are perfectly located in the most game rich and stunningly diverse habitat the Lower Zambezi National Park has to offer.
Views — undoubtedly the most spectacular views overlooking islands and channels, teaming with wildlife, with the Zambezi River and Escarpment as the perfect back drop.
Exclusivity — due to the fact that these camps are deep inside the Lower Zambezi National Park, we rarely see other vehicles. It is almost like having our own exclusive zone in the heart of the park!
The Lower Zambezi National Park was officially gazetted in 1983 and is over four thousand (4092) square kilometres. Bordered by the Great East Road in the North, the Chiawa Game Management Area (GMA) in the West, the Zambezi River in the South, and Rufunsa GMA in the East.
This park gets it's beautiful scenery from the combination of 120km of Zambezi River front, the game in the valley floor and the Zambezi Escarpement, the Southern limit of the Great East African Rift Valley. The park is opposite Mana Pools National Park, a protected World Heritage Site in Zimbabwe.
The Lower Zambezi National Park has a large variety of wildlife species which are generally widely dispersed during the wet season. In the dry season they are more concentrated on the valley floor, the banks of the river and islands in the Zambezi where food and water are more plentiful.
Common sightings in the Lower Zambezi are: buffalo, elephant, hippo, waterbuck, zebra, impala, bushbuck, kudu, leopard, lion and hyena. Often seen are wild dog (african hunting dog); serval & african wild cat and the smaller mammals include side striped jackal; dwarf, slender & banded mongoose; large spotted genet; civet; tree squirrel; honey badger; porcupine and aardvark.
