Sense-sational Safaris

Welcome to a safari that’s anything but typical, filled with unforgettable moments in Zimbabwe’s wildlife haven.

Our approach is simple: when the game vehicle engine goes silent, the real adventure kicks in! Imagine tracking lions on foot, walking among wild dogs, counting elephant eyelashes, and cruising by hippos on the Zambezi River. This is not your average safari; it’s a fully immersive, sensory-overloaded experience.


Conservation & Community

“It’s surely our responsibility to do everything within our power to create a planet that provides a home not just for us, but for all life on Earth.” Sir David Attenborough

Founded by Nick and Desirée, Bushlife Safaris stands as a beacon of conservation in the Mana Pools National Park community. Their dedication to preserving the rich biodiversity of Zimbabwe is evident in every facet of their operation. For Nick and Desirée, conservation is not merely a professional obligation; it is a deeply personal mission. 


Their involvement in the Mana Pools National Park community extends far beyond the boundaries of their safari business. They actively engage with local initiatives, collaborate with conservation organizations and empower local communities to become stewards of their natural heritage.
