Bumbusi is made up of 5 guest rooms, each with a private open-air bathroom and a cosy verandah, perfect for arm-chair game viewing 

Bumbusi Wilderness Camp is nestled in an oasis of mature trees and shade which, bolstered by the waterhole and natural pool, makes for a wildlife magnet, especially in the dry season. The stone and thatch chalets all look out onto the lawns and water and compliment the incredible geology of this reclaimed wilderness. Expect hot soaking showers, a cool pool to soak in after a beautiful walking safari, cosy beds and great coffee and meals around the fire! A true safari experience.
