About Warthogs Bush Camp

Warthogs Bush Camp is Cameron Harvey Safaris' small, friendly and rather unique budget camp on the outskirts of Kariba town. Despite its close proximity to urban life, it's nestled in mopane scrub on the shores of the lake and is bang in the middle of a game corridor, so exciting close-up game viewing is a common past time.

The Bush Camp is a perfect stopover location before houseboat trips, canoe trips and ferry trips or just to chill for a few days. We currently offer accommodation for up to 20 people by way of 3 tented units, 3 thatched en-suite cabins and a fully equipped dorm-style self-catering Cottage. We also have a small area for camping. We supply bedding, mosquito nets, toilet rolls and BASIC braai equipment; you only need bring with you your own towel, toiletries and a torch. There is a communal fridge for campers' use in the bar. If you prefer, bring your own cooler box for the cabins (not allowed in the bar area).

Talking of facilities, we have hot showers and clean toilets for the campers and there are braai stands...please ask for them at the bar. The bar kitchen and grill is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 11am to 8.30pm. If guests require breakfast the staff will come in for you if requested.

We have staff on duty 24-hours a day as a security presence, to help with washing up, and assist with making fires. For entertainment there's our friendly ‘bush bar’ and splash pool. Elephants, hippo and zebra often wander through to check our menu and keep the grass trimmed. On cool nights you can sit round the fire pit overlooking the floodplain and lake.

As registered operators we can book you onto sunset cruises, houseboat safaris and canoe trips. To make life easy, shops and fuel are only a few kilometres away.

                          Cabins have very nice and large bathrooms. Wonderful to stay so close to the water, the staff walked the extra mile to make our stay enjoyable. The chef at the bar/restaurant is very good!

                          We have been asked to give a review with regards to our booking and stay at Warthogs Bush Camp. This is what we experienced.Firstly we went onto the internet to look for self catering chalets. The advert on the internet and at the entrance of the camp is very very misleading. When we arrived there was no one to welcome us except for the barman. We paid for our stay in full when we were sent the quotation before our arrival. The manageress was behind us when we arrived and she still did not introduce herself to us or welcome us. We booked in with the barman and when we needed out the key it...

                          The setting of the bar is good and staff helpful. Ask for En-suite cabins if you stay overnight, it is an African experience! The self-catering cottage should only be used for a single family ( one bathroom) and needs attention.
