BUMBUSI WILDERNESS CAMP

Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe

A Private Hwange Experience

Many people struggle to find safari camps that are unique and private. Bumbusi Wilderness Camp’s historical ruins site and secluded game viewing offers guests the chance to experience a Zimbabwean safari with a difference! 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 wildlife, especially the elephant as the season gets drier which makes for incredible game 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.

“This was the first time we were ever in Africa and I couldn’t have asked for better ambassadors than all of those at Bumbusi. The entire experience was incredible and will be remembered for a lifetime.”
 – The Williamson family, USA, August 2021

“We cannot heap enough praise on our experience. The camp was my favourite! There is nothing cloned about it. It has charm and quiet elegance. It is not pretentious  It has the rare combination of just being able to belong, and it has every comfort anyone could ask for. Even the pool, which is more like a farm reservoir, fits perfectly.”
– Paul Connelly, September 2020
