Lake Kariba Sleepout Experience.

The Lake Kariba Sleepout Experience at Bumi Hills Safari Lodge is now available for bookings! Accommodating guests for one night aboard the Lady Jacqueline boat, this unique experience provides the opportunity to enjoy walking safaris and boat cruises along the shoreline of Matusadona National Park.

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.
