Award-winning Adventure Awaits…

With a magnificent combination of wildlife and wilderness, Bushlife Safaris has created the perfect portfolio of safari experiences for you. These include the luxurious Vundu Camp built on the banks of the Zambezi River, Little Vundu – an intimate camp, the Ruwesi Canoe Trail which is ideal for adventurous travelers and lastly a tented camp set in the wild Chitake springs area.

Bushlife Safaris began in 1999 when Nick and Des Murray made a decision to make Mana Pools, a UNESCO World Heritage site, their home.

Nick is a hugely experienced and widely renowned Professional Guide with decades of experience around Africa. His most-loved animal is the wild dog, and he is currently studying these intelligent social predators of Mana Pools, in cooperation with the Painted Dog Conservation group. Nick has an uncanny connection with the wild dogs and his walking safaris allow guests to safely observe them at close range.

Together with his wife Desiree, a licensed professional safari and canoe guide, they make quite the extraordinary guiding team where their passion lies in providing you with a thrilling venture that you will most certainly return for year after year.
