A Place Of Outstanding Natural Beauty
Set on a range of remote hills in one of Zimbabwe’s finest wilderness locations, Bumi Hills Safari Lodge is utterly captivating. With the Zambezi escarpment as its backdrop, this haven of serenity overlooks the eternal shimmering waters of Lake Kariba below. Not only is Kariba’s shoreline wildlife-rich, but the lodge’s proximity to Matusadona allows for the wildlife to freely move between the national park and Bumi Hill’s private concession, creating endless game-viewing opportunities, led by our passionate team of guides.
Zimbabwe’s vast fresh-water inland sea – 280 kms long and 40 kms at its widest – formed when the Zambezi River was dammed at Kariba Gorge in the 1950s. A wildlife and water wilderness paradise. Lake Kariba is the name given to the huge body of fresh water which spread 5 200 sq km over the Zambezi River valley after construction of the first major hydro-electric dam was completed in 1959, across Africa’s fourth largest river. It is roughly estimated to be about 280kms long and 40 kms at its widest.
