We just got back on Monday after a wonderful three weeks in Africa, the highlight of which was no doubt our nine nights at your bush camps.
Being lazy, I rarely write notes but I did want to say what a very special experience it was for the three of us and how much we enjoyed it. The teams at the camps were wonderful, and the attention to detail was extraordinary. So knowledgeable and so enthusiastic despite being so close to the end of the season when they must be so tired!
Special thanks to Peter, Claire and Fanuel and Julius and Manda and not forgetting our “laugh a minute” spotters Moses and Elijah. We hope they didn’t mind our sense of humour and constant jokes!
I hope we can visit again one day.

Absolutely fabulous time in this stunning location. Animals were magnificent, the staff including Fannuel, Enoch, Mwasi, Elija and Julius were lovely!

I attach a selection of the best photos from my once-in-a-lifetime safari at Bilimungwe guided by the amazing Suzyo. Looking at these photos still makes my skin tingle at the memory of this incredible experience. It was one of the best things I have ever done in my life.
Many thanks to everyone at Bushcamps for making my visit so special. There were so many times during my visit that I wanted to pinch myself to make sure that this magical place was real. I especially want to praise Suzyo — the safari would not have been as special without him and his insightful comments. I hope to visit Bushcamps again sometime.
