“Bumbusi is unique, not just for Hwange but Zimbabwe as a whole!”
– James Williams, Jan 2019 

“A reclaimed wilderness for the discerning safari lover.”

The Bumbusi safari is a perfect complimentary experience to the larger, more sandveld based camps further south or the discerning safari lover wanting a remote corner of Hwange to themselves. The camp offers an exceptionally unique experience in a reclaimed corner of Hwange National Park where the various gorges, drainage lines and hills are perfect for safari lovers who like to explore a region on foot. The shady oasis of camp acts like a magnet for game, especially the elephant as the season gets drier which makes for incredible wildlife viewing. Added to the walking and game drive experience, the Bumbusi National Monument adds a beautiful richness to any safari and is located a short drive from camp.

“The camp has not just been restored, it has become a small oasis of measured luxury that coexists effortlessly with its remote natural surrounds. It’s remoteness offers the opportunity to walk or drive each day and see no one. An increasingly unique experience, even in Africa!
– Simon Rowlands, August 2019
