“An evergreen camp oasis”

Located in Hwange National Park, Bumbusi Wilderness Camp is nestled in an oasis of mature trees and shade which, bolstered by the natural pool, makes for a wildlife magnet, especially in the dry season. Your Bumbusi accommodation will consist of stone and thatch chalets which 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.

“What you have there in Bumbusi is what the bush should be like; remote, far,special and paying attention to its surrounding nature. It was the jewel on top of our amazing adventure.” 

– Paul Stasse, August 2021

What you will love about Bumbusi Wilderness Camp accommOdation:

The swimming pool, fed by the natural springs, is as popular with the elephants as it is with our guests, making for some unique encounters. 

The original stonework of the camp has been preserved with additional touches of canvas and thatch giving Bumbusi an authentic safari feel.
