Upon arrival guests will be met and transferred by road to Kariba harbour, from where they will be transferred by boat to Bumi Hills Safari Lodge, where they will stay for two nights.Sitting atop a hill commanding magnificent Lake Kariba vistas, Bumi Hills Safari Lodge is the ultimate “rest and relaxation” retreat located 55km south west of Kariba town. The lodge stretches out towards the lake where elephant and buffalo graze on the shoreline below with zebra, wildebeest, waterbuck and impala. In Matusadona National Park nearby, one might spot black rhino, leopard or lion on the prowl. Bumi Hills Safari Lodge offers 10 luxury suites and 10 standard bedrooms each offering a view of the lake and wildlife can be seen grazing on the shoreline. Facilities in the rooms include en-suite bathrooms, overhead fans, air-conditioning and a balcony or veranda.
The Lodge offers a variety of activities which include game viewing in open safari vehicles, on foot accompanied by a professional guide and by boat. The sunset cruise provides guests with wonderful photographic opportunities especially of the famous Kariba sunsets and the hide enables you to observe the animals at first hand and offers superb bird watching. Casual fishing is also available thus giving you the chance to challenge the lake’s fierce fighting tiger fish. Cultural encounters can be arranged in neighbouring villages for an insight into the rich, ancient culture of the Tonga people.
