Lodge style Bush pampering
Let it all go…
This is one of those camps where you feel like the service and pampering has reached the limits, but suddenly it turns out there is even more spoiling possible. Camp Kuzuma is situated in the in the pristine Kazuma Forest Reserve in the Chobe region of Botswana. With wildlife in abundance, including breeding herds of elephant, leopard, lion, spotted hyena, giraffe, large buffalo herds, roan antelope and sable – just to name a few – there is a constant flow of animals roaming the area. And if the abundant wildlife isn’t enough, the hospitality of the fine staff will embrace you from the minute you set foot in the camp. High end meals and delicious food await you after every safari activity, the most knowledgeable guides and trackers, a swimming pool almost within hand’s reach of the elephant watering hole (which is a very bustling place – you’ll see), and warm service at moments when you don’t even realise that you need anything. This will be one of those rare holidays in where you can find true relaxation; you don’t have to worry about anything except pinching yourself every so often to make sure you are not dreaming.
Camp Kuzuma is a personal and small-scale camp, with only seven suites. Custom built, open plan tented suites are situated under a canopy of Mopane trees. All tents are furnished with a great eye for detail and design. Not only are they luxurious and spacious, the staff and management also thought of everything to make you even more comfortable: en suite facilities with indoor and outdoor shower (is there a better way to wake up in the bush?) plus a Victorian style bathtub, a king-size bed with deluxe linen and mosquito net, all the bathroom amenities you need and - maybe the most important part - a private viewing deck where fresh brewed coffee is served every morning to wake you up before the first safari activity. The main areas of Camp Kuzuma are just as comfortable and come with countless cosy nooks to settle down. Or take a jump in the pool during hot hours of the day, followed by a nap on the lounge chairs after you watched the local elephant herd passing by. Indulge yourself during an extensive high-tea buffet or delicious supper prepared by chefs Jaco and Dandy in the homey dining area, while you share safari stories with other guests. And if you thought you reached the limit of true pampering: wait until you visit the wellness centre.
Activities at Camp Kuzuma
With so much wildlife in the area, Camp Kuzuma focuses completely on land based activities: early morning drives (and by early we mean: at the crack of dawn), night drives and guided walks. And with the camp being so close to Chobe National Park (one hour drive) and the Victoria Falls (approximately two hours away), the camp also offers excursions to these beautiful spots (additional costs). So, what does a day at Camp Kuzuma look like? Obviously, the day starts with a hot brewed coffee, followed by a morning game drive. With herds like wildebeest, elephant, buffalo, roan antelope, sable, giraffe, lion and leopard roaming the open plains, there is plenty to see. By returning to the camp, a delicious and filling brunch is ready to sooth rumbling safari bellies. Relax on your deck or at the pool to watch the wildlife parade from there, or opt-in for a guided safari walk. In the afternoon it is time for probably some of the best high teas you will ever have, followed by the afternoon game drive and a sunset drink in the wild. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, the chefs prepared a delicious three-course meal. Finally, all there is left to top it off is pick a spa treatment to satisfy the soul: massages, reflexology, aromatherapy, facials and hand and foot treatments – bush pampering hasn’t reached his limits – no, not even close. All included activities take place in Kazuma Forest Reserve.
