By far the BEST holiday experience my husband and I have ever had. Nathalie and Willem and their entire team are a class act! The bush dinner blew us away....it was the absolute highlight of our honeymoon experience. Maxwell, our tour guide, made us feel so at home and was an amazing host on both our fishing trip and game drive. "Captain Ed" provided plenty of laughs on the boat ride to and from Kariba. The food was exquisite and the attention to detail all around is what set this experience apart. Bumi Hills is truly one of Zimbabwes hidden gems! Since our return to Canada, we have shared our experience and pictures and have recommended to anyone's who will listen what an amazing place this is, and that it's a must see destination when one visits Zimbabwe. If you have an online gallery, we'd be happy to email our pictures for you to share in your marketing efforts. All in all, one heck of an adventure! THANK YOU Bumi Team!!!

- Bumi Hills Safari Lodge and Spa boasts one of Africa’s finest wilderness locations with an elevated position on a range of remote hills overlooking the vastness of Lake Kariba. Bumi is situated near the North Eastern border of the Matusdona National Park and is easily accessible by light aircraft and boat, allowing you to be swiftly transported into paradise without the stress of a long journey. The safari lodge has a total of 10 rooms, all with views over Lake Kariba. All rooms are premium rooms with balconies and uninhibited views over Lake Kariba. There are garden rooms available too, reserved for guides and tour leaders, with slated terraces, set a little way back behind and on a level above the premium rooms. Taking centre stage is the beautiful infinity pool that seems to blend endlessly into the lake horizon. The pool is surrounded by intimate wine and dining terraces on different levels. The lodge interiors have been beautifully finished in a fusion of contemporary western and African styles. Bumi Hills Safari Lodge is situated on an extensive wildlife conservation area. Bumi Hills is home to lion, leopard, big herds of elephant and buffalo, as well as a multitude of different plains game. Guests can indulge in superb fishing in the lake waters surrounding the safari lodge with bream and the fighting tiger fish in abundance. Birding and cultural experiences (with the rich local Tonga culture) also abound.
