Hideaways Africa's New Chapter with Bumbusi Wilderness Camp


In an exciting development, Hideaways Africa proudly announces its official takeover of Bumbusi Wilderness Camp's, sales and marketing, marking a significant expansion within its esteemed Hideaways Collection. Effective February 22, 2024, all bookings and reservations for Bumbusi Wilderness Camp will seamlessly transition to the capable hands of the Hideaways Africa team.

The dedicated team at Hideaways Africa will now handle all inquiries, confirmations, and contact channels. They are keeping things the same for now but are looking forward to new offerings of the newly named Hideaways Bumbusi Wilderness Camp in the coming months.

A Jewel in Hwange National Park

Hideaways Bumbusi Wilderness Camp is located in an evergreen oasis in Hwange National Park. Surrounded by lush trees and natural springs, the camp acts as a magnet to wildlife, especially Elephants as the dry season unfolds, and offering unparalleled opportunities for Big 5 game viewing.

The stone and thatch cabins overlook the camp’s lawns and complement the geology of this recovered wilderness area. Travelers can expect hot showers and baths overlooking nature, a refreshing pool to relax in after a walking safari, walking activities led by the camp's permanent pro-guide, and wonderful coffee and dinners around the fire!

Tailoring Experiences for Every Traveler

Although Bumbusi Wilderness Camp traditionally caters only to Exclusive Use clients, now that the camp falls under the Hideaways brand it will cater to both independent travelers (FIT) and those seeking Exclusive Use for special occasions or intergenerational gatherings.

Seamless Transfers, Limitless Experiences

For those seeking a seamless blend of experiences, Hideaways Nantwich Lodge stands just a 2.5-hour game transfer away from Hideaways Bumbusi Wilderness Camp. Combine the offerings of Hideaways Nantwich Lodge with Hideaways Bumbusi Wilderness Camp to unlock a unique experience of Hwange National Park.

When you stay at Hideaways Nantwich, you can go on exciting game drives to see the amazing wildlife, such as large groups of lions, cheetahs, elephants, and hyenas. There are many places to enjoy uninterrupted views of the huge Hwange Park, including the main area, the private deck, the pool, and their own hide right by the dam.

At Hideaways Bumbusi Wilderness Camp, visitors can enjoy a unique experience that focuses on walking-based activities that give visitors close meetings with history and nature. You can walk through the rough terrain or go on a hunt for crocodiles at Bera Pools. Learn about the Nambya past at the less well-known Bumbusi ruins and the intricate rock carvings that the Nambya used to find animals.

Hideaways Africa welcomes you to join them on this exciting new venture as they introduce Hideaways Bumbusi Wilderness Camp to the world. They can't wait to show their valued customers all that this lovely location has to offer.
