DMC Zimbabwe - Bushtracks Africa

About us

Bushtracks Africa is a professional Destination Management Company with long term experience in the MICE industry. We offer incentive activities, conferences, corporate and group events and business meetings.

Operating since 1997, Bushtracks Africa has grown from what was initially a Ground Handling company in Zambia, to one of the largest leading Ground Handling and Destination Management Companies in Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana. Add on destinations that compliment these regions are also available.

Over the years, we have catered for client groups from large conferences and incentive groups to individual travelers. We believe that having our own operational offices, as well as our own staff and vehicles in the provided areas, is what makes us the company of choice.

Our reservations and accounts office is based in Johannesburg, South Africa for ease of contact. The infrastructure in the city allows for a larger team of highly experienced and qualified staff to ensure that we provide the best service and itineraries possible. As specialists, we deliver authentic, memorable African adventure travel experiences, with flair and resolute attention to detail.

In addition to the above, we also won the tender to be the preferred Ground Handler and Destination Management Company to Sun International’s groups. Our buying power allows us to negotiate the best available rates from all the properties in our regions, and our expertise allows us to place the right guest in the perfect hotel and area.

 
ZIMBABWE 
Zimbabwe is a country in Southern Africa. It is landlocked between South Africa, Botswana, Zambia and Mozambique. These are some of the signature products we offer in Zimbabwe, which are perfect for accommodating large groups:

 

Steam Safaris 

Climb aboard one of our elegant and opulent steam trains. Steam locomotives and carriages have been carefully and lovingly restored by Bushtracks Africa and Rovos rail, to create a whimsical experience of a bygone era. The carriages have been beautifully and luxuriously decorated in a theme reminiscent of a dazzling and forgotten era. Guests are greeted with a welcome drink to sip on while looking out at the surrounding scenery. Guests will then indulge in a delicious five-course meal and fine wines, served in a romantic, vintage setting. After dinner enjoy sundowners on the Victoria Falls bridge, appreciating the spectacular sunset views of the falls and the gorge below, before returning to the platform.

River Safaris 

Bathe in tranquility while meandering down the Zambezi River on one of our deluxe water crafts. Activity hums through the trees as the bush breathes with the flap of bird’s wings. Hippos disturb the peaceful water by blowing small pockets of water from their snouts, while crocodiles break the surface of the river and glide onto the banks to warm themselves in the sun’s rays. Occasionally, elephants will submerge their bodies into the river and swim from island to island.

Set against this picturesque backdrop, delicious snacks and chilled refreshments are served by a team of friendly staff, ensuring ultimate relaxation and a level of comfort and grace unsurpassed on the Zambezi river.

Bushtracks river safari boats each have two engines for increased safety and are jet propelled, so the Zambezi River can be experienced as it was by David Livingstone when he canoed, unknowingly, towards The Victoria Falls.

Tour of Victoria Falls 

The Victoria Falls possess a beauty that is impossible to replicate through any man-made efforts, a natural wonder created by Mother Nature reminding us of her power and complexity. A trip to Southern Africa would not be complete without laying eyes on this incredible spectacle.

During the dry season the Victoria Falls is best viewed from the Zimbabwean side. A guided tour of the falls enables you to delve into the local customs and traditions while gaining insight into how such an exquisite creation came to be. The adventure ends at a craft market at the entrance of the rainforest, where guests can appreciate the talent of local craftsmen and purchase memorabilia of this special experience.

Elephant Art Safaris

 Enjoy a truly unique eco-conscious experience with orphaned elephants. The Wild Horizons Elephant Sanctuary and Orphanage was founded on the principle of conservation, they believe the most effective ways to evoke a sense of environmental responsibility is to showcase what stands to be lost.

The experience begins in an open thatch Boma, granting guests uninterrupted views of the beautiful Masuwe River. Guests will have the opportunity to talk to guides that have journeyed incredible distances, both physically and metaphorically, with the elephants in order to learn more about the complexities of each individual as well as the structure of the herd.

Guests will then venture down to the waterhole, where they will find a chair and easel set up with a fresh sheet of paper, under the shade of an enormous Mopane tree. Brightly coloured aprons and palettes with splotches of paint will be handed out. A private tutor is provided to guide guests through a painting workshop, using their sketch pads and brushes to capture the scene before them. Once finished, guests will return to “The Wallow” for a delicious two-course buffet style lunch, rounding off a perfect morning experience.
