Bumi Hills Safari Lodge is situated on top of a hill approximately 55km south west of Kariba Town. With the Zambezi escarpment as its backdrop, the lodge overlooks the foreshore below and the vastness of Lake Kariba.
Bumi Hills has 20 front-facing rooms (10 Premium and 10 Standard), all with bath/shower, overhead fan, air conditioning, mini bar, tea-coffee station, and balcony or veranda. All rooms have a view over the lake and the 10 Premium rooms have sunrise and sunset views over the lake, historic Starvation Island and the game-rich shoreline. Larger groups can be accommodated in additional 'elephant territory' luxury houseboats, just a two-minute transfer from the lodge.
Because of the added dimension of the water at Bumi Hills, guests can enjoy game viewing by boat as well as the traditional open 4x4 vehicles. Walking in the wilds is also an option, with an armed professional guide. Guests can also drive and walk to track rhino in the nearby Matusadona National Park. Among the other species that may be seen at Bumi are many elephants and buffalo, Nile crocodiles, lions, hippo, leopard, kudu, water buck, impala, warthog, monkeys, baboons, sable and zebra.
Bumi Hills has recently introduced sailing to its list of activities. The lake waters around Bumi Hills are ideal to explore from the lodge's 30 foot catamaran. A fully qualified skipper is on hand to cruise through beautiful archipelagos, bays, creeks and inlets to discover sandy beaches, birding havens and game rich ecosystems.
