Nestled in the remote hills overlooking the largest man-made lake in the world, the luxurious Bumi Hills Safari Lodge offers sensational views of the Zambezi River Escarpment and Lake Kariba’s eternal blue waters. Not only is Kariba’s shoreline rich with bird species, but the lodge’s proximity to Matusadona National Park allows for even more game-viewing opportunities. The park is home to a wide range of wildlife that includes rhino, elephant, buffalo and the renowned Matusadona lion prides.

With Kariba right on your doorstep, you can spend your days exploring the lake on private boat cruises and try your hand at tiger fishing. Go on scenic walking safaris around the lake, or venture further into the surrounding forests to discover fossilized dinosaur footprints. Alternatively, interact with the local community and learn about their history and traditions.

Bumi Hills Safari Lodge is a tranquil stop-over between safaris in iconic destinations like Mana Pools, Hwange National Park, Victoria Falls, and even Zambia’s Kafue and Lower Zambezi National Park.


  • Fantastic hilltop location with sensational views of Lake Kariba
  • Classic game-viewing region
  • Amazing bird-watching opportunities around the shoreline
  • Close to the legendary Matusadona National Park
  • Sunset boat cruises on the lake
  • Infinity-edge swimming pool and spa with views


  • Animal tracking experience
  • Bird watching
  • Boat excursions
  • Cultural tours
  • Day tours
  • Fishing
  • Game drives
  • Guided walks
  • Local village visits
  • Picnics
  • Sunset cruises
Although we had great game drives & game viewing, I think this is a perfect addition to any Zimbabwe safari itinerary to include some more diverse experiences such as boat cruises, fishing, walking & authentic Tonga village visits. What I loved most about Bumi was the relaxed no-schedule, no set mealtimes flexibility as well as the pool & spa to enjoy some downtime in between safari activities.

Bumi Hills’s blockbuster is its gorgeous infinity pool, blending limitlessly into the horizon and surrounded by intimate wine and dining terraces. Gaze out over paradise and marvel at the brilliant pink-to-red-to-golden sunsets that Lake Kariba is famous for.

Indulge in a soothing treatment at the lodge’s spa while savouring the fantastic views over the lake. Your children will be well taken care of at the Ngwana Club, where trained supervisors will help them pass their days with fun craft and cooking activities, as well as excursions to local schools and villages. 'Ngwana' translates as 'explorer' in the Tswana language of Southern Africa and the little explorers will also be able to learn the basics of conservation and explorer waterways and nature trails.


Delicious international and local cuisine can be enjoyed in the lodge's fine dining room or on the outside terraces overlooking Lake Kariba.

Dinners for special occasions are easily arranged on an outside terrace or on the sandy shore of the lake itself.
