We stayed at Bushbuck for 3 days in October and it was perfect. Alan and Oriel are knowledgable and attentive hosts and the other folks staying at the time were good fun so we became firm friends during our stay, they definitely added to the good feeling we have about Bushbuck. Our stay was relaxing tho we also managed to fit a lot in - Livingstone island, Devils pool, river cruise, dinner train, visit to the falls and the Victoria hotel in Zimbabwe.
The visiting elephants where a highlight as was dinner in the boma.
Do leave plenty of time to just stay and enjoy the lodge while here, a morning or pm of relaxing will be long remembered more than an other excursion.
We felt very fortunate to be staying here in what felt like home and for the knowledge and expertise about Africa and the region that Alan and Oriel shared.
