My husband and I brought a group of 17 to stay at Bushbuck for 4 nights and it fit our needs perfectly! We were mostly naturalists, interested in seeing as many animals and birds as possible (Rhino Walk, Zambezi river float, River Dinner Cruise, and...More
What a beautiful place! Right on the river. Rooms are very nice, large bathrooms, great showers! Pool, tree house overlook. Lots of great birds!! Staff is very helpful and knowledgeable! Did the rhino walk, elephant walk. Went into Victoria falls and floated the river to...More
BRH is very much an upmarket B&B home-stayish experience rather than a tourist lodge or hotel. Rooms, and management style are a tad quirky, but overall we had a good experience. Don't expect a modern bedroom or bathroom; or decent wifi. While the place is...More
Shower tray full of insects on arrival, 6 wall spiders in our bedroom, when asked to remove, we were told 'spiders stay'. Told we could not eat inside at night, pre-paid evening meal was denied, due to visit to Victoria falls! Interrupted by the manager...More

Thanks for your questions.
Yes The Falls will be in good flow in April. This year the elephants returned to Bushbuck in early May but we can not predict from year to year as it depends on the rains. If they were not around at the house we could arrange a Chobe Day Trip for you to increase your chances of seeing them. This year evening meals are U$22 for two courses and U$27 for three courses. We have not set 2017 rates yet. For more information you could also visit the bushbuckriverhouse web site.

We do have wi-fi Bushbuck but please understand that Zambian wi-fi is not the same standard as you might find in other countries. The signal strength varies throughout the day, so sometimes there is signal in some rooms, but at other times only on the patio area at the front of the house. The limitations on our supply means that it is not suitable for downloading large files and this will probably be the same wherever you stay.
