Myself and my boyfriend had a fab time here, we stayed in the lodge for 1 night then onto this bush-camp for 2 night's. It was so relaxing, great staff, gorgeous chalet with animals all around. We got a lovely visit from Elephants, warthogs etc., at night right outside our chalet which was really cool to hear. The food was... More

I just realized I forgot to post a review of this Bushcamp when I returned. we were scheduled to stay 2 nights, and ended up 4, reducing time at Mfuwe lodge and Chindeni. it was definately the right move. if I could give this camp 10 stars, I would. Tom, our host, was outstanding. Manda, our guide, who we had... More

I first saw Bushcamp area from the plane the first time I went to Mfuwe Lodge in November 2011 for the Scott/Berry photographic safari. By accident I took a photo of then from the plane.I showed Manda and he told me it was where Bilimungwe was, so when I decided to go to a bushcamp that was my first choice.... More

We closed Billie spending 2 nights. Due to the rains it's some time hard to get there. This bushcamp is, like the others, a little seclusive paradise. Being the only guest it was even more special to us. Fantastic chalets, around a water hole. In fact no game drive required, the game comes to you while you are enjoying a... More

Spent 2 nights at the beginning of November - our 2nd Bushcamp (also spent 2 nights at Chindeni). We were thrilled to see the wild dogs on 3 drives!! The camp is spectacular with the water holes and the food is excellent. The service was not as good as at Chindeni and the staff not as passionate, but still an... More

We spent two nights here during our visit to the Mfuwe lodge. Coming out to the bushcamp was like having a vacation from our vacation. Our chalet overlooked it's own pond so the deck was completely private. The outdoor shower was my favorite part though. Tom was a great host and made you feel right at home from the minute... More

Have just spent 5 nights at Bili in search of the African Pitta. Great camp in a splendid location with 4 chalets and 3 water-holes. Shortly to close as the rains come and re-open in May. Tom (Camp Manager) does a great job. Excellent food, friendly and obliging staff. Very good guides and spotters. Comfortable rooms and beds and with... More

Upon our arrival at Bilimungwe following a three hour bush drive, we were looking forward to lunch and a cold beer. Unfortunately, (but reflective of the fact that we were "not in Kansas"), we were held hostage in our beautiful camp chalet by three elephants who were enjoying pods from the adjacent tree. Camp host Tom finally gave us the... More

This was my first time doing a Safari and we started in this camp. We stayed 3 nights here and then we moved to two other camps of the same company Bushcamp. I fell in love with the room as soon as we arrived despite being a bit grumpy after driving 3 hours in the sun to get there –... More

Bilimungwe was our first Bushcamp experience and it exceeded any expectations I had from the moment we drove up to find the entire staff welcoming us with ice-cold face towels and fruit juice. Tom, the camp host, is a charming young man who made us feel at home immediately, but the true star of the camp is Manda, our incredibly... More
