Bumi Hills Safari Lodge
From its position on a range of remote hills, Bumi Hills Safari Lodge is afforded breath taking panoramic views over the great inland sea of Lake Kariba, offering the best of both land and water based adventures and wildlife viewing in Zimbabwe.

Bumi Hills Safari Lodge

Embodying the essence of Zimbabwe, Bumi Hills is gorgeously positioned high on a hilltop with views of the Zambezi Escarpment in one direction and the vast, practically oceanic, expanse of Lake Kariba in the other. The private airstrip is an easy 1-hour flight from Victoria Falls International Airport and a short drive from the lodge.

The lodge features contemporary minimalism styling and African fusion design, providing an elegant and calming experience. The main area is designed to give the feeling of a beach retreat that combines serenity with style and offers uninterrupted view of paradise beyond and the changing pink-to-red-to-orange skies at sunsets that Lake Kariba is famous for.

When you’re not gazing at the panoramic vistas, cruising the lake in a private boat, getting in touch with nature on a bush walk, trying your hand at tiger fish fishing or unwinding with one of the rejuvenating spa treatments, the iconic infinity pool is the perfect answer for a little relief from the hot African sun.

For travelers in search of a safari in an unspoilt location, unique wildlife encounters and thirst for adventure and exploration, Bumi Hills Safari Lodge is the ideal destination.
