PRACTICAL. COMFORTABLE. RELAXED.
Gonarezhou Bush Camp is a mobile tented camp, which is operated on an exclusive booking basis and requires a minimum group of four adults for a minimum stay of four nights.
Our aim is not to provide a luxury hotel in the bush, but a comfortable, private retreat from which to appreciate the true wilderness qualities of Gonarezhou which is one of the park's greatest attractions.
Owing to the camp being booked on an exclusive basis means you will have the entire camp to your group, allowing for all activities, meals and day-to-day plans to be dictated by yourselves rather than fitting into a rigid routine. Being lightweight and mobile in nature means one has to forgo some of the luxuries of a permanent safari camp, however, that said this does not mean that our camping style is basic by any means.
Attention to detail ensures your comforts are adequately taken care of and none of the important necessities have been overlooked – comfortable beds, hot showers and clean ablution facilities, freshly prepared wholesome meals and a good selection of hot and cold beverages are all provided.
The camp can sleep a maximum of ten guests, in five 3 x 3 metre canvas dome tents. Each tent has two regular size single beds fitted with cotton sheets, duvets and throw pillows, a bedside table and outside a little front veranda with two chairs and a hand washbasin. A short distance behind each tent is separate shower and short-drop loo tent.
We provide LED lighting in the tents and at night hurricane lamps illuminate the pathways between the tents and the main mess area.
The main mess area is a large open sided tent where most meals are served unless we are having a bush-breakfast or picnic. In the early evening, after drinks and snacks have been enjoyed around the fire, dinner is taken by candlelight in the mess or out under the stars.
