Bumi Hills Safari Lodge

Lake Kariba, Zimbabwe


At Bumi Hills, the extraordinary can be found every day. Perched atop a hill at a secret riviera in Zimbabwe, Bumi Hills Safari Lodge offers a whole new perspective on the natural beauty of Africa. Seamlessly merging luxury touches like a spa and infinity pool, Bumi Hills brings the bush to you. The sweeping vistas of Lake Kariba are the perfect place to spot elephants swimming in the lake, and at night the sky is bright with stars. During the day, the entire landscape is your playground, with guided boat safaris or walking excursions into the bush only a few of the offerings at the lodge.

When you’re ready to retire, enjoy an evening cocktail as you watch the world-famous sunset over the lake. While the natural environment certainly takes center stage at Bumi Hills, the lodge has a strong tradition of community empowerment and conservation as well. Through its work with the African Bush Camps (ABC) Foundation, Bumi Hills has fostered peaceful coexistence between local communities and wildlife, supported school conservation clubs, and works to recycle water and upcycle waste whenever possible.
