Back to basics for ABC

Back to basics for ABC

ON THE back of a record year, privately owned African-based safari firm African Bush Camps (ABC) will be adding a new safari camp to its portfolio from Nov.

Situated in Mana Pools National Park on the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe, Mahogany will feature 24 beds split between two camps – a family camp with 12 beds, and the remaining accommodation catering to an age-restricted camp, seven years and above.

“We are so excited about this new development because we are going back to basics, back to a very remote tented camp,” ceo Beks Ndlovu told Travel Daily last night at a sundowners supplier event in Sydney.

Development of the camp will commence in Jun in a wilderness area where traditionally no one has been able to build.

“Mahogany will be the epitome of the great outdoors offering everything across the spectrum from walking to canoeing to fishing”, said Ndlovu.

The new site will join ABC’s existing collection of 11 camps across Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe, which also includes the recent re-opening of Bumi Hills Safari Lodge (TD 12 Apr).

Last year saw Australian visitor numbers double for ABC, with Ndlovu praising its local African wholesalers and rep company Ynot Concepts for its success.

“We have confidence in the Australian market & will continue to build this up,” Ndlovu said.
