Bumi Hills Safari Lodge
Lake Kariba

Bumi Hills Safari Lodge sits neatly atop a range of remote hills in one of the most picturesque wilderness areas in Zimbabwe, with the breathtaking Zambezi escarpment as the backdrop to a panoramic view of the mesmerising Lake Kariba.

The lodge comprises of just ten stylish lake view suites and one two-bedroomed private Baobab Villa, fitted with its own living room, bar and indoor and outdoor dining, as well as a private butler, safari guide and vehicle – something which completely enhances the intimacy of this unique location! From every vantage point of the lodge, both suites and main building, the views across the surrounding landscapes are simply spectacular. The lodge has been designed to seamlessly blend in with its natural surroundings, and the central infinity pool in the main building allows for a flawless, uninterrupted view of the stunning lake and surrounding bush.

Bumi Hills has something for everyone, and days are spent either on the lake or on walking safaris with exceptional guides who are well versed in all aspects of the area. The exhilarating game drives and search for fossilised dinosaur footprints ensure a once in a life time experience. The incredible wildlife experience is only one aspect of the African Bush Camps ethos, the group is committed to community and conservation projects as well. The partnership between various stakeholders strives towards sustainability and empowering communities with opportunities to be self-sufficient. The inclusion of local communities is an inspirational aspect of the lodge and enables perspective and insight into the challenges and accomplishments of the committed team on the ground.

Bumi Hills allows children of all ages sharing with adults, and the rates include all meals and all beverages, except premium imported spirits and champagne. The morning and evening game drives, walking safaris, boating, sunset cruises, fishing and village visits are also included. In addition, the transfers to and from the nearest airstrip and Bumi Hills, Anti-Poaching Unit donation is automatically included in the daily rate.

We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
