Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

Eco-friendly:
In camps guests are all issued with reusable water bottles to reduce plastic consumption. Water is purified and distributed accordingly. $10 is donated to fund the operations of a Foundation to be utilized 100% on foundation and conservation projects within the communities around the camps The properties are completely solar-powered and 80% of the water used in camp is recycled. Kanga Camp is 100% green. Thorntree River Lodge is an eco-conscious haven.

Anti-Poaching
By land or lake, the Bumi Hills Anti-Poaching Units is committed to protecting the wildlife and wilderness of this ecologically important region. From coordinated patrol efforts to the collection of wildlife crime data, vigilance is key to our continued success.

Wildlife Research
For long-term conservation initiatives to succeed, there is a need for more meaningful research to be conducted in the Sebungwe region of Zimbabwe. The Bumi Hills Foundation strives to fill this gap through studies of local predators, large mammals, and environmental ecology in the years to come.
