Browse listings

Bumi Hills Safari Lodge is part of the African Bush Camps portfolio.

Situated atop a range of remote hills, the lodge affords breath taking panoramic views over Lake Kariba - Zimbabwe's inland sea. 

Ten stylishly appointed en-suite lakeview rooms and two premium suites (with 2 bedrooms, bathroom and a private lounge) are built into the hillside, overlooking the the lake and the game-rich shoreline below.   

The main living area surrounds the  infinity pool with its iconic central palm tree, and from the bar and dining deck there are uninterrupted views towards the brilliant sunsets that Lake Kariba is famous for.

Baobab Villa
The Baobab Villa sleeps four (two bedrooms) and can be used exclusively. The Villa has its own lounge and deck and includes a private vehicle and butler. 

Bumi Hills offers guests a multitude of ways to explore Lake Kariba and its surrounds:  game drives in search of the Matusadona lions, boating, fishing for tigerfish or bream, sunset cruises, scenic lakeside walking safaris or bush walking adventures to search for fossilized dinosaur footprints. 

Bumi Hills Safari Lodge is unique- a secret Riviera in the heart of Africa, and a perfect place to unwind and reenergize in the wild as part of your safari circuit.

Access via seat-rate flights from Harare, Victoria Falls, Hwange or Kariba, self-drive, or road/ boat transfers from Kariba Town.
