Zambezi River, Western Zambia

A piece of peace on the Zambezi river

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 location took our breath away! A unique ‘glamping’ experience close to nature… and catching a tiger fish is a memory we will treasure for a lifetime!” 
–  Deb Minaar
