Bumi is a famous and beloved brand and has been since first opening in 1975. The panoramic vista from the pool, bar, dining deck, spa and all premium rooms is simply astonishing and would be difficult to surpass by any safari lodge on earth. After some years of neglect the lodge has been totally revitalised to luxury levels never seen before, including a breathtaking signature infinity pool.
Bumi Hills Safari Lodge re-opened in September 2009 and offers 10 Premium and 10 Standard rooms and so many awe-inspiring experiences in an authentic African eco-wilderness. One guest wrote with passion: "Few things in life transcend your expectations, but to step out on the Bumi deck high above this awe-inspiring lake is genuinely one of them".
Only very hardy 4 X 4 enthusiasts would ever attempt to reach Bumi Hills Safari Lodge by road. The lodge is accessible by road from Victoria Falls and from Harare, but even 4 X 4 "toughies" should avoid the wet weather between December and March.
Bumi Hills Safari Lodge Amenities
Bumi 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. An exclusive four-suite villa may also on occasion be available by special application if more rooms are required. All rooms have a view over the lake but the 10 Premiums are sublime with awe-inspiring sunrise-and-sunset vistas over the lake, historic Starvation Island and game-rich shoreline. Larger groups may relish the adventure of additional "elephant territory" accommodation aboard luxury houseboats, just a two-minute transfer from the lodge.
Bumi is unique among luxury safari lodges because of the exquisite added dimension of the water - Kariba is among the world's largest man-made lakes and a genuine African wilderness with far more animals than people. This allows for glorious game viwing by boat as well as the traditional open 4 x 4 vehicles and walking in the wilds with an armed professional guide. You may also drive and walk to track rhino in the nearby Matusadona National Park. Among the species that may be seen at Bumi are many elephants and buffalo, massive Nile crocodiles, lions, many hippo, the elusive leopard, kudu, water buck, impala, warthog, monkeys, baboons, sable, zebra.
