Return to the main African Safari Adventure page.

Enjoy a relaxing houseboat safari on Lake Kariba, situated in the Zambesi River between Zimbabwe and Zambia, and enjoy amazing scenery, incredible sunsets, prolific birdlife and close up game viewing of elephant, hippos, crocodile, buffalo, kudu, impala and much more. Try your luck with the on-board fishing tackle and attempt to hook a tiger fish, famous for its tenacity and fighting ability.

A captain, cook and one or two crew members will attend to all your needs. You can choose to bring your own groceries, which the cook will prepare for you, or you can opt for a fully catered option.

The upper deck is mostly under cover to provide protection from the hot African sun and contains a bar with ice making machine. A splash pool is available to cool down. Two tender boats are towed for game and bird viewing, as well as fishing and power is available to run the on board fridges, freezers, a hot water geyser, lights and plug points. This safari is ideal for:

  • Those that wish to enjoy a refreshing drink while game viewing and relaxing on the deck
  • Small groups and independent travellers
  • Family gatherings, a reunion of friends or corporate team building events
