Botswana: Tuskers Bush Camp | Таскерс Кемп Ботсвана

#TuskersBushCamp #TuskersBotswana #ТаскерсКемпБотсвана #NxaiPan

Tuskers Bush Camp is located between Nxai Pan National Park in the east and Moremi Game Reserve in the west in the Kwatale Conservancy. It encompasses 365 000 hectares of acacia scrub and mopane woodland, plus the northern tip of the Botswana Kalahari, making this exclusive tract of land ideal for game drives and walking safaris.

6 Meru-style canvas safari tents are located between the evergreen mopane trees, looking out into the veld and offering guests seclusion and privacy during their stay. En suite bathrooms comply with the sustainable construction of the camp, with heated bucket showers and eco bush toilets.

The main dining tent, boma, and bar overlook a bustling waterhole, and the free-flow of animals create a wild and untamed ambience throughout. Tuskers is a true canvas bush camp with added luxuries and an emphasis on its sublime location.

The road becomes a gravel road and you will cross the vet fence. Continue straight on the gravel road until turning right onto another gravel road and drive along the fence for +-15km until reaching  Tuskers Bush Camp.

The camp

Tuskers Bush Camp is the ultimate bushveld retreat. The old-world safari tents are authentic and simplistic, a design that is replicated in the main area of camp where guests will find a dining area, lounge, bar and fireplace.

There is a spacious safari-style dining tent where guests are seated at meal times, while a lounge area with comfortable wicker and canvas furniture and coffee tables is the ideal spot to while away the afternoon. The adjacent freestanding bar is a feature of the camp, also shaded by canvas walls and roof.
