Bilimungwe is a rustic yet elegant camp, the thatch fits perfectly into the landscape among the ebony trees, three waterholes and the river, it is a paradise for the animals as well as guests.
The camp consists of four chalets, there is a huge focus on attention to detail and guest satisfaction. The chalets have open sides, allowing you to enjoy uninterrupted views of the surrounding wildlife. If you require a bit of extra privacy one of the chalets is set exclusively from the others.
An amazing star deck has recently been built and Bilimungwe, it has become a hub activity for guests. Be it learning about the southern skies, enjoying a candlelit dinner with a loved one or practising yoga at sunrise. It is undoubtedly a top spot for embracing the safari experience.
“Bilimungwe was everything I imagined a Bushcamp to be and more, the friendly staff made the experience even more special, from the host, to the guides and the talented spotters. I loved the location, far from all the other lodges and camps, this gave it a very intimate and personal feel. I loved the rustic yet comfortable and homely feel, the spacious rooms, indoor and outdoor shower and views onto the watering hole from the balcony. I loved sitting on the balcony with a coffee in hand and enjoying the quiet and peaceful surroundings. The food was delicious, the bush breakfasts a favourite and we even utilised the Pizza oven; a memorable touch to the whole experience.”

We travelled to Bilimungwe from sister bush camp Chindeni where we had such a wonderful time – we were very intrigued to see Billi as it is more commonly known. We were greeted by the manager Alex and the staff who sang a welcome song as we arrived. Alex and her team provided an exceptional standard of customer service and experience from the moment we arrived., to the moment when we (sadly) left. Billi is centred around a very large mahogany tree. The comfortable lounge area overlooks one of camps three watering holes. There are comfortable chairs, charging facilities for your camera and other equipment. Breakfast in the boma a lovely experience and the morning views are well worth getting out of bed for! Breakfast, lunch and dinner were all excellent.
I have spent 6 days in 3 camps of The Bushcamp Company and it has been amazing. The camp is very small, the standard of services is very high even though you are in the bush, the camp manager is superb, the location is incredible … the waterhole in front of our tent was so busy with wildlife that it was impossible to take a nap! We had even thought of cancelling the afternoon/evening drives but then we went and my Gosh! also that was stunning …. and the special surprise on our last evening was amazing. We really felt spoilt. Safaris were top. Thank you Bushcamp Company! Hope to be back soon.
We stayed at Bilimungwe for 3 nights and had an unforgettable experience. We couldn’t fault anything- accommodation was luxurious, food was fresh- made from scratch and varied, tables beautifully laid and we were made to feel special by all the staff from the moment we arrived. Alex is an exceptional camp manager and our guide, Manda brought the African bush alive in an extraordinary way. The game sightings were plentiful, lion and leopard every day plus plenty of antelope, elephants and hippos.
Our third camp this trip and another amazing experience. Once again the people are truly amazing and make you feel so at home. There was a small lagoon outside our lodge which was visited by bush buck, warthogs, baboons, puku and impala every afternoon. Alex and Shadrach are great envoys for bushcamp. The hospitality, food, gamedrives and walks were just perfect. Recommended for anybody looking to be away from modern day living.
