Our Story

In 1997, the husband and wife team of Nick and Desirée Murray formed Bushlife Safaris. In 2007, Lucy Mumbashura joined their family-driven venture, shaping what we proudly present today as Bushlife Safaris in Mana Pools National Park—a truly wild gem in Africa.


At Bushlife Safaris, we invite you to explore the beauty of Mana Pools through our renowned and award-winning walking and canoeing safaris. Nick and Desiree, both who are qualified professional guides with nearly 60 years of combined bush wisdom, lead our exceptional team. Join us on a journey where warm hospitality meets the thrill of the wild at Bushlife Safaris!
