Bumi Hills Safari Lodge


This luxury safari camp sits secluded high in the hills overlooking Lake Kariba

This intimate safari lodge sits in prime position on the hills above Lake Kariba. An elevated haven offering lakeside seclusion, Bumi Hills is classic, remote and wild. Throughout, exposed brick and wooden walls combine with handcrafted furnishings and soothing grey and green hues. There’s a cosy lounge with a a gorgeous dining area on the terrace, but the contemporary lakeview rooms are just something else. Decorated in a style that's both classic yet industrial-chic, the rooms' sophisticated interiors are an indulgent treat. Gorgeous draped beds face the windows for maximum lake views, and each one pampers with an oversized bathroom and private lakeside terrace. For the ultimate in luxury, opt for the two-bedroom villa for a truly premium retreat, with its own lounge and bar plus the services of an exclusive butler.

While the lodge certainly indulges, it's the lake that takes centre stage here. There are views of Kariba from each and every corner of the lodge, and the gorgeous infinity pool is beautifully positioned above the lake. Here, the famous Kariba sunsets are something quite special; this is when the lake comes alive, unapologetically erupting into a blaze of radiant colour. With the stunning surroundings serving as your natural playground, it’s down to you to choose how to spend your days here. Head up into the hills and try a day or night game drive, or head down to the lakeshore for a spot of tiger fishing, go on a scenic boat cruise or join a walking safari with one of the superb expert guides. You'll also be able to visit the local village, where the African Bush Camps Foundation is working closely with the local community to improve facilities in education and health care.
