Who is African Bush Camps

African Bush Camps is a small and independently owned Africa based company run by one of Africa’s top Safari guides Beks Ndlovu and his wife Sophia. The company was a result of the growth of Beks Safaris, where Beks used his natural talents and outstanding guiding skills in nature to promote the concept of private guided safaris through remote parts of Africa.

Beks and Sophia passionately believe that your guide and your hosts in Africa are the key to the most memorable African experiences to a quintessential safari. To compliment their vision, they have taken on owner run properties and operations under their portfolio of African Bush Camps. All our safari camps are uniquely designed on the original style of comfortable tented safaris that are authentic and boast of the art of service and above all fantastic unparalleled wildlife experiences and encounters.

Roads in the bush are rough and bumpy, we occasionally travel "off road" and injuries can occur. African Bush Camps, their staff members, associates or agents cannot be held liable for any accidents or any damages! Most places booked for travel are in wild and remote parts of Africa with dangerous wildlife and often harsh terrain; hence you will be exposed to potentially hazardous activities. African Bush Camps, its associates, partners and staff will not be held liable for any injury, loss of life or damage whatsoever during and after the travel arrangements.

Most of our guides and staff are keen photographers and to enhance your experiences and enjoyment, photographs may be taken of your safari and some of which may be used for promotional purposes.

African Bush Camps and its partners reserve the right to use these images without the consent of any one appearing in the images or photographs; however you can be guaranteed that no photographs of a compromising nature will be used for such purposes.

Whilst we are committed in ensuring that your travel arrangements remain according to plan, African Bush Camps and its partners and associates may alter, cancel or change travel arrangements at anytime without your approval or notice should they feel it justified in the interest of safety, enjoyment and practical purposes for any of its guests or clients.

It is assumed that the deposit payment and your final amount paid is because you have agreed to the terms and conditions set out by African Bush Camps, its associates and related companies and partners and thereby will not hold liable any claim against any person or organization as a result of any changes, cancellations, damage to one’s property, injury, death and any other unforeseen occurrences whether it is due to negligence by one or more of our staff or any company. Therefore, you have indemnified the various organizations and individuals aforementioned in any such events.
