Bushbuck is a wonderfully peaceful spot on a large area of land on the banks of the Zambezi. We were lucky enough to see a herd of elephants bathing in the river just after we arrived so right from the start we had that feeling of really being in Africa. While having dinner one night we also saw a hippo munching away on the watered grass near the house. The rooms are small but beautifully decorated. The food is good and they have a reasonably priced honesty bar. On their excellent website there is a huge range of activities to choose from, which they can book for you. Really liked this as it was nice to already get an idea of the activities on offer in advance. We did a river drift and a microlight flight. Both were fantastic And last but certainly not least, the hosts Alan and Oriel are really lovely people, very friendly and knowledgeable. A very enjoyable stay and a great start to our holiday.
