Lodge Key Features

The Villa

The suites at the lodge are to die for, the decor stylish and natural and the wooden decks overlooking the lake are equipped with comfortable seating to enjoy a morning coffee and watch the wildlife. The lodge also has its very own 2-bedroom private villa, equipped with all you need for a memorable and luxurious stay. With its own living room, indoor and outdoor dining areas, a private butler and your own vehicle and guide, you can enjoy and experience a very personal and intimate safari experience at Bumi Hills Safari Lodge…you almost won’t want to leave this divine haven.

Location & Wildlife

The location of Bumi Hills is in one of the most magnificent settings. Sitting right on the shoreline of Lake Kariba where the wildlife is in abundance, the lodge is also close to the Matusadona National Park where the wildlife roam between here and Bumi Hills private concession. This creates incredible game-viewing opportunities whether you are enjoying some down time in the lodge or out on a walk or drive. The lake also offers a number of exciting encounters, with lots of crocodile, birdlife and even elephants who often venture to the water.

Sunset views

Not only are the views during the day from all angles special, it’s when the sun starts to set over the lake that you want to freeze time and savour every second. The pool makes for the perfect little spot to enjoy this, look out as the day comes to a close, with a cold beverage in hand, sat under the canopy on a comfy sofa. Or head over to the fire pit and look out over the deck which sits above the lake and treeline. Its moments like these that you truly appreciate the incredible setting you are in…magical Africa!

Client Reviews

  • Spectacular Resort

    Bumi Hills is a magical resort overlooking Kariba. Excellent facilities and impeccable service make for a really special experience. Game guide Max took us on memorable outings from birdwatching to fishing and game viewing and there is nothing to beat a sunset over Kariba!

  • Just fantastic! As one in the group said: “This is next to heaven”

    I am a tour-guide and have been to Bumi Hills four times. We were 18 people this time and several of them have been to Bumi twice or more. It must be one of the best lodges in Africa. Food, service and attention can’t be better. Facilities are just great after a beautifully done renovation. The pool area, the stunning view from your room are just unbeliveable. You have to see it to belive it.

  • World Class Service and Facilities like no other

    Wow wow wow!! This lodge totally blew us all away. A previous review called it the best 5 star hotel in the world. We now see why. The service and attention to detail provided by all staff is like no other we have experienced in our 20 years of travelling together. Extremely well managed by a young dynamic team who are always there 1 step ahead with our every want and need.
