Hwange Bush Camp

Hwange Bush Camp offers an authentic bush experience in the wild northern section of Hwange National Park.

Hwange Bush Camp is owned by professional safari guide Dave Carson, who has been guiding for over 30 years. While Dave is not always in camp, the focus here is still exceptional guiding. The camp is located in the remote northern section of Hwange National Park and while wildlife may not be as prolific as areas further south in the park, with highly skilled guiding and flexible activities, guests are assured of a quality experience. The area of the park is also very scenic and lends itself well to walking safaris. The camp itself has minimal infrastructure but is very comfortable. The team is friendly and welcoming, the food very good, and with guides also hosting meals, Hwange Bush Camp offers an authentic and personal safari experience which will tend to suit experienced African travellers and, in particular, those with a passion for learning about wildlife and exploring Africa on foot. Zimbabwe guides were historically respected as being the best in the industry, and this is a camp that connects back to that era.
