Daytime game drives can be taken to explore and to view the abundant wildlife including elephant, buffalo, zebra, lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog, giraffe, eland, sable, hippo and hyena. Night drives are an excellent opportunity to see some of the more shy, nocturnal animals. For a more immersive, up close and personal experience guests can take a nature walk and explore the local leadwood and mopane woodlands and adjacent grasslands. The camp takes advantage of its river location and offers a Mokoro trip, based on the design of traditional canoes, these fiberglass replicas provide an up close and intimate view of the river and its wildlife. A bird-watching paradise, the river has a wide variety of bird-life to take in and enjoy. Guided walks, sundowners, and bush lunches and dinners are also available. Cultural tours of nearby villages furnish a terrific chance to gain a deeper understanding of the people and country of Botswana.

The camp will possess the same level of style, interiors, comfort, and standard that our guests have come to expect from African Bush Camps properties.
