We stayed at Bilimungwe for our first 3 nights in Africa. The camp was completely rebuilt last year and it really shows. It is a beautiful place, the rooms are magnificent, everything done is wood, even the sink and showers. We had a private waterhole that brought a wide variety of game during the days. The staff was excellent, responding to any request we had, and the food was equally excellent. The manager, Mike, is also a guide and took us out for a private guided drive when we arrived after the group had left! The best part of the camp, though is Manda. He was the best guide by far we had, explaining many many details about what happens in the bush. He explained animal behavior, uses for many trees and plants, the local population’s interactions with animals, and his pacing and delivery of this information was perfect. Our bush walks with him were the highlight of our trip. This camp is isolated from civilization, which is its charm, and allowed us to see the environment with no man made interferences (noise, light, etc). We saw 5 of the 6 Bushcamp Company’s camps, they are all different with their own charm, and all equally comfortable, and would not hesitate to recommend any of them.
