We spent 4 nights at the Bushbuck River House (May 2012) and it was the highlight of our 3 week holiday. It is not just a place to sleep, it is an experience. You can sit in the comfortable outdoor area and watch the Zambezi River along with all the amazing birdlife. Or mingle with the other guests while eating sumptuous meals. Alan and Oriel are UK expats who have created a warm and very friendly environment. They genuinely enjoy their visitors and are a great help in arranging activities (elephant rides, sunset cruises, etc.). Bushbuck is about 20 minutes outside Livingstone and transportation is not a problem - the owners will drive you into town or arrange for a taxi. Staying at the expensive 5 star hotels always feels a little fake with paid for smiles. Our stay at Bushbuck allowed us to connect with Zambian life, albeit in a comfortable setting.
