Lake Kariba Houseboat Safaris

Africa’s last unspoilt river, the Zambezi, formed into a huge fresh water Lake at Kariba; and a wilderness of great beauty, many wild animals, birds and fish.

Lake Kariba houseboats have been in use, year round since the creation of the lake in the late 1950's

The Zimbabwe town of Kariba is the hub as it's close to the Matusadona National Park

Binga on the Vic falls side of the lake has houseboats but not the density of animals

The Southern Belle is moored on the Zambian side of the lake, but has no National Park nearby
