Bushman Plains is an authentic mobile camp, with the ability to move between spectacular exclusive campsites within our 370,000 acre wilderness area. This allows for us to always be in the best locations for the wildlife in the true nomadic tradition of the Bushman culture. Even though we are mobile, we do not normally move during your stay but rather remain set in the ideal location.
Our style demands that the camp be intimate, so we are one of Botswana’s smallest camps with just four guest tents. Bushman Plains features a classic style using large Hemingway-esque Meru tents. Each tent is 8 meters x 4 meters, and features comfortable beds with high-quality linens and duvets. There is a deressing area with a wardrobe and a sink with running water, plus separate, private shower and toilet areas. Showers are the typical bucket setup found throughout much of the safari world; staff hoist a bucket of heated water, which is then delivered through a normal shower head in the privacy of your own tent. A solar inverter system provides electricity for tent lighting and battery charging.
The central area of the camp includes a mess tent with veranda for relaxed hanging out. Central to Bushman culture is the campfire area where we share ancient stories, and tales from today, under the stunning Botswana night sky. Our camp chefs produce delicious meals that are predominantly western in style but making best use of local ingredients with some options to include traditional fare if you desire.
“We really enjoyed the experience, the tents are extremely comfortable. We hope to come again one day.” – Heleen – October 2016
