We stayed at Bushbuck for three nights prior to commencing a two week Botswana safari. The stay at Bushbuck turned out to be a highlight of the whole world trip that we were on: it is the location and hospitality that sets Bushbuck apart. Bushbuck is a traditional-style thatched farm house and we stayed in a room on the ground floor. The room was stylishly decorated with comfortable facilities and there is a relaxing living room to share with other guests. We especially enjoyed the location on the bank of the Zambezi and the freedom to roam the grounds exploring the plants and wildlife. There was plenty to explore with elephants and antelope crossing on the lawn and heaps of birds to practise your identification skills on. Alan and Oriel were the perfect hosts and immediately our family came to feel as though we were staying with friends rather than as part of a commercial arrangement. We can highly recommend the local village tour that can be arranged: completely non-touristy and very informative. While we did not do it, we can also see that the optional school visit would be a very rewarding experience. We believe that what Bushbuck does best is provide a peaceful, comfortable, friendly and relaxing place to slip into the sights and sounds of Africa while still being a convenient base to visit Livingstone and the Falls - highly reccomended!
