A place of outstanding natural beauty on a secret Riviera in the heart of Africa.
Set on a range of remote hills in one of Zimbabwe’s finest wilderness locations, Bumi Hills Safari Lodge is utterly captivating. With the Zambezi escarpment as its backdrop, this haven of serenity overlooks the eternal shimmering waters of Lake Kariba below. Not only is Kariba’s shoreline wildlife-rich, but the lodge’s proximity to Matusadona allows for the wildlife to freely move between the national park and Bumi Hill’s private concession, creating endless game-viewing opportunities, led by our passionate team of guides.
Early next year we offer guests a special treat at no extra cost, a professional ‘Photographer in residence’ at Bumi Hills. Adam Rabinowitz will be joining guests in residence over the course of three weeks in secret season, an ideal time for photography. Dramatic thunderstorms, bright landscape and colourful migratory birds will all serve as the focal points to capture Africa’s magic. Adam will be giving informative presentations & workshops around the fire, as well as taking guests on themed game drives. Have you ever dreamed of going on a game drive with a world-class photographer and landing the perfect shot? This is your chance, whether you are an avid or amateur photographer.
Each of the ten stylish suites boasts spectacular views over the lake and its surrounds. A truly immersive Zimbabwe wildlife experience, you will wake to the sound of birdcalls echoing across the water and uninterrupted vistas of the lake. Gaze out from the lodge’s infinity pool as it melts into the horizon or enjoy the intimate wine and dining terrace, and marvel at the fiery golden sunset for which Lake Kariba is renowned. Bumi Hills has its own 2-bedroomed private villa, the Baobab Villa, complete with its own living room bar and indoor and outdoor dining decks. The villa comes with a private butler, safari guide and vehicle.
With the lake as your playground, spend your days cruising on the water or meandering the surrounds on a walking safari. Venture deeper into the bush in search of fossilised dinosaur footprints or go on an enthralling game drive in search of the resident lions.
