This wildlife rich park was established in the year 1983 and combines beautiful scenery of120km of Zambezi river front, the southern edge of the Great Rift and panoramas of animals in the valley.
Getting to the Lower Zambezi is quite easy considering that it is situated in a fairly remote part of the world.

Only a 30-minute flight from Lusaka to Jeki airstrip and then a 1-hour transfer/ game drive to the camp, imagine what one would see before even arriving.
Potato bush has raised wooden walk ways that connect the different parts of the camp and offers two different types of accommodation; the safari tents and the family tent.
