Bumi Hills

Bumi Hills is a tranquil paradise with expansive views of Lake Kariba with its shimmering waters stretching to the horizon with elephants, zebras, giraffes, and an assortment of birds including African fish eagles, and colourful kingfishers.

A Place Where Nature Takes Center Stage

Bumi Hills is strategically situated on a range of remote hills in one of Zimbabwe’s finest wilderness locations and has the Zambezi escarpment as its backdrop while overlooking the glistening waters of Lake Kariba. With 2,000 km of shoreline, Lake Kariba is the 4th largest man-made lake in the world and the 2nd largest in Africa, making it a truly impressive place to explore, especially by boat. Kariba’s shoreline teems with wildlife, and the proximit to Matusadona means that species of wildlife move freely between the national park and Bumi Hills private concession, providing endless game-viewing opportunities. Spend your days cruising on the water or on walking safaris to discover the ancient secrets within the fossilised dinosaur footprints found in the area. Activities include guided walking safaris, stargazing, boating, birding, catch-and-release fishing, day and night game drives searching for lions, as well as engaging cultural visits to the nearby local community.

Discover the Magic of Lake Kariba

Situated on the sparkling shores of Lake Kariba, the beautiful Matusadona National Park was proclaimed a non-hunting area in 1958 which insured the protection of its wildlife and vegetation. With a steady supply of regenerative grasses as a source of food and an abundance of water from the lake, buffalo, waterbuck, zebra, and impala thrive here, as do the predators. The lake itself is teeming with huge crocodiles and the shorelines attract herds of elephants and buffalo. Lake Kariba is a sanctuary for bird enthusiasts, with its fertile islands and marshy areas attracting many bird species. Bumi Hills is committed to environmental stewardship and the preservation of its surroundings. The resort takes a proactive approach to sustainable practices, ensuring the protection of the local ecosystems and actively reducing its ecological footprint.


Bumi Hills offers limited luxurious accommodations with beautifully appointed rooms and suites that feature modern amenities, stunning lake views and exceptional facilities.
