Our HQ is based at the beautiful Victoria Falls Waterside Campsite, 10kms from Livingstone.

The camp has running water with clean showers and toilets, a bar, swimming pool and local tourist office. We offer comfortable camping for our volunteers with walk-in tents, entry porch and twin beds offered on a shared basis.

A communal lifestyle is an important part of life at the Book Bus camp so everyone is expected to take turns with meal preparation, cooking and washing up. Our Project Coordinator lives with volunteers and manages the Book Bus camp ensuring everyone is comfortable and well looked after.
