Usually accommodating between just 8 and 20 guests, we have hand-picked our recommendations which are all in great locations with outstanding wildlife and excellent resident guides.
Our clients benefit from our unbiased recommendations and carefully selected camps and lodges. But booking through Bushbuck costs the same, and sometimes less, as booking direct.
So, when we make a recommendation, it comes from personal knowledge. What is more, our recommendations are entirely unbiased because we do not own any properties ourselves. We select only those camps and lodges which have that extra something. Whether it is stunning boutique design or authentic classic safari style, they are the gems of the safari world. All provide great guiding and are in the best locations for wildlife. Consistent with our philosophy of conservation and community involvement, we only recommend camps and lodges which support sustainable tourism.
We work with our clients to build individual safari itineraries which deliver the best safari experience. Typically, this will include a number of camps and lodges in a variety of locations. Transport between camps and lodges is by small aeroplane or vehicle.
