The beauty of African Bush Camps Somalisa
What does the word “Safari” mean to you? Originating from the late 19th century in the language of Kiswahili, the word comes directly from the Arabic “safara” meaning “to travel”.
A safari with African Bush Camps Somalisa isn’t just the traditional expedition to observe wildlife in natural habitat. The concept of an old, untouched Africa remains in each of their camps, coupled with a distinct approach to ensuring a light environmental footprint, having minimal impact on the wildlife and ecology in the areas they operate.
Independently owned and operated by one of Africa’s most notable safari guides, Zimbabwe-born Beks Ndlovu and his wife Sophia, the properties and operations underneath the African Bush Camps brand all provide tailor-made and exceptionally unique safari itineraries and experiences to their guests.
