REVIEWS FROM OUR GUESTS

  • What makes African Bush Camps stand out from the rest is the management’s support and training of their guides. I could not more highly recommend Africa Bush Camps. They have set the standard everyone else should be trying to achieve. They are excellence defined.

  • The hospitality of African Bush Camps is second to none.  I would encourage EVERYONE to visit Zimbabwe and stay with ABC! 

    Mjohchi
  • We arrived at Somalisa after 6 nights in the Mana Pools National Park to receive the now familiar ABC welcome: genuine smiles, warm greetings and peppermint-scented face flannels to wipe away the grime and dust.

  • It’s human nature to seek out a trip that nobody else has experienced, and this is where high-end travel outfitter African Bush Camps comes in

    Condé Nast Traveler
  • Somalisa Expeditions has captured all the romance – and the wildness – of a true African safari experience. The carefully designed luxury camp sits in a grove of acacia trees, and is frequented by herds of elephants and, sometimes, lions.

An amazing paradise⁠

⁠Bumi Hills safari Lodge exceeded our expectations. Everything was top notch; the staff was on point and they had impeccable attention to detail.⁠

Sheckie was our host and he made sure we were well taken care of. Harris, our guide, was very knowledgeable and made our stay worthwhile. Massive shout out to him for helping us see the lions; we’d been trying to see them from the time we got to the lodge, and when they were finally spotted just as we were about to leave he made sure we saw them. Plus, Harris also helped us spot an elephant during our guided walk. Lawrence, our waiter, was exceptional and really good. Mathias the housekeeper was also great, making sure the room was comfy.⁠

Special thanks to all the staff, particularly Chenai who gave me an amazing spa experience, chef Sunshine, Eddie for the fishing lesson, as well as Nyasha the assistant manager who ensured that we were comfortable during our entire stay.⁠

Also, a special mention to Sam who helped us organize the entire trip and made sure everything was on point. Will definitely be returning to Bumi soon.⁠

Happy World Safari Day!⁠ 🐆🦁🐘🐃🦏

A Safari is more than just a getaway to amazing destinations, it is an uninterrupted connection with nature, the exploration of wildlife, and getting in touch with the essence and beauty of Africa. It is connecting with the land, the wildlife and the people.⁠

This interconnectivity allows each of us to play a role, remembering that we are a part of a whole.⁠

Going on safari with us allows us to protect wildlife, through conservation and anti-poaching initiatives, and empower communities by improving the quality of education and creating employment opportunities through skills development programs implemented by our foundation⁠ 🙏🏾
