The Okavango Delta is a World Heritage Site and considered by many experts to deliver the highest quality safari experience in all of Africa. Bushman Plains Camp is surrounded by some of the best game viewing area in the Okavango Delta. The area encompasses tens of thousands of acres where we can track, off road game drive, and night drive, ensuring high quality wildlife viewing with exclusivity — no vehicle crowds here. The area is very diverse with permanent water channels, lagoons, extensive floodplains, towering forested islands, and open plains. This variety makes the area stunning and supports the full range of Okavango wildlife.
The area is most known for predator viewing, especially for observing endangered African wild dogs and lions. The Ash Pack of wild dogs (20+ individuals) has denned in the area since 2011. A second pack, the Golden Pack, used to den in the area and we still frequently observe the pack hunting near our camp. There are two prides of lions, and they are known to hunt big prey like buffalo and hippo. Elephant numbers can be huge in this part of the Okavango, and the rarely sighted sable antelope is common. Unlike many parts of northern Botswana, even during the green season months of November through March big numbers of buffalo and elephant continue to be seen. The endangered wattled crane and the highly sought out Pel’s fishing owl are Okavango bird specialties that are often found here, along with a full diversity of birdlife.
