Lake Kariba & Matusadona National Park, Zimbabwe
Perched up high on a forest-clad hill along the north-eastern border of Matusadona National Park, Bumi Hills Safari Lodge offers a luxurious and contemporary stay, with the most spectacular views of Lake Kariba from almost every corner.
Look down from your private balcony and the glistening waters of Lake Kariba will enthral you, seeming to blend endlessly into the infinity pool that takes centre stage. We love the wonderful wining and dining platforms that sit at different levels by the pool, including the small campfire area that lies right on the edge, looking down onto the verdant canopies.
The 10 rooms all have picturesque lake views, and adopt a trendy fusion of modern interiors and authentic African stylings. The private balcony is the ideal spot to watch the sun set across the horizon, a glass of champagne in hand. The main lodge features a restaurant, bar, library, and a lovely spa offers a serene place to truly unwind and relax.
Nestled on a wildlife conservation area, embark on an exciting game drive and you’ll be sure to spot the likes of lion, leopard, buffalo and elephant. We love the birding safaris here too – seeing exotic birds swoop above your head is a wonderful experience – and there’s great fishing opportunities in Lake Kariba, too. If you fancy a relaxing afternoon of wildlife spotting, the armchair safari right next to the lodge’s waterhole is ideal.
