Bumi Hills Safari Lodge and Spa

Built on the shores of a great inland sea, nestled in mountains, guarded by enormous reserves of game and fringed by green islands and ancient trees, Bumi Hills Safari Lodge and Spa is the perfect pit-stop on the safari circuit — a place to unwind and reenergize in the wilds of Zimbabwe.

Bumi Hills is lauded for having the best panoramic view of Lake Kariba and has recently been renovated and rejuvenated to capitalise on the breathtaking vistas over the lake.  

The lodge is located 30 miles southwest of Kariba town, near the north-eastern boundary of Matusadona National Park, with the Zambezi Escarpment visible in the distance. It’s easily accessible by light aircraft or boat.

There are 10 stylishly appointed lake-view rooms and two premium suites on the ridge overlooking the lake and the game-rich shoreline below. 

The area surrounding the infinity pool has been designed with serenity and style in mind. The view from the bar and dining deck gazes out over the brilliant pink-to-red-to-golden sunsets that Lake Kariba is famous for. 

The spa and gym at the lodge provide a place for guests to relax and rejuvenate, where safari-goers can unwind and look after both mind and body.

Dinners are served either in the formal dining room or outside overlooking the lake. With soothing spa treatments on offer, guests can have the best of both worlds — authentic safari meets laid-back luxury.

Bumi Hills offers many ways for guests to explore Lake Kariba and its surroundings. There are game drives and boating safaris, as well as adrenalin-fuelled fishing and walking safaris in search of fossilized dinosaur footprints. Visitors can enjoy sunset cruises and private lakeside dinners, along with experiencing the cultural heritage of the Tonga tribe during a visit to a nearby village. Bumi Hills is the perfect place to connect to Africa.

The views of Lake Kariba will endear visitors to this slice of paradise. Bumi Hills Safari Lodge and Spa is unique — a place of outstanding beauty in the heart of Africa. The echoes of ancient African legend are woven into the essence of this iconic Zimbabwean destination.
