Situated almost exactly halfway down the iconic Zambezi River & approx. 90 km after it spills over the magnificent Victoria Falls. Lake Kariba is an attractive and largely undiscovered holiday destination. Its vast expanse of water forms a boundary between Zimbabwe and Zambia; its extensive and attractive shorelines are home to large populations of wildlife and its islands are dotted in a picture-postcard deep blue sea against a backdrop of high escarpment mountain ranges on each side. Big sky sunsets over the lake are legendary, with the calm water turning to golden in the dusk and the bare branches of its famous petrified trees silhouetted in the foreground. Karibas magnificent scenes are second to none.

Zambezi Cruise Safaris has the largest privately owned fleet of luxurious boats on Lake Kariba. Offering comfort with the classic friendly Zimbabwean service, making a complete and intimate cruise experience. With cruises that can traverse the full 270km length of the lake and in and around beautiful bays and islands, this is a truly unique African Safari. Sit back and soak up the breath taking scenery or partake in the many offered activities on an all-inclusive basis.

The Cruise Experience

A typical day on board starts with an early morning continental breakfast followed by game viewing or fishing from the tender boats( smaller boats that travel with the main vessel and are used for activities), allowing you to explore the expansive waters of the Lake, experiencing the unbeatable scenic views, abundant birdlife and possible wildlife sightings. The boom of the Ground Hornbill resounds from the shoreline and Pells Fishing Owls can often be found in the high branches and riverine patches. The notorious cry of the African Fish Eagle echoes from all around the lake.


The Matusadona National Park boasts a unique combination of pristine rugged wilderness, together with the water frontage of the Lake. It is one of the last remaining sanctuaries of the Big Five and is famous for its abundant elephant population which feed along the shorelines. Try your luck fishing for Kariba Bream, Cornish Jack or the infamous Tiger Fish or simply snap away in this photographer’s paradise. Back at the main vessel, a delicious brunch is served on deck as we sail off to our next destination along the lake shore.

Lake Kariba stretches endlessly into the distance, a vast unpolluted lake with hazy colorful horizons providing picturesque landscape views. On arrival we explore the nearby creeks and inlets with abundant hippo and crocodile populations or simply relax with a cool drink and watch the world drift by. In the evening enjoy a sundowner and soak up the legendary Kariba sunset as we cruise back to the main vessel.

Wildlife and Activities:

Experience the waters and shores of lake Kariba in a variety of ways, fishing or game viewing from tender boats, guided bush walks on the Matusadona flood plain and game drives from our partner lodges in the National Park or simply cruising into the sunset.
From the tender boats you are afforded the amazing opportunity to spend hours exploring on your birding and wildlife safari.

On the Binga/Victoria Falls side of the Lake there is abundant birdlife including such treasures as Pells Fishing Owls and Black Eagles as well as large hippo and crocodile populations living in the inlets and bays. This is a safari area and not a National Park so abundant wildlife sightings are not guaranteed but this area does have four of the Big Five and sightings are always possible. The area is fairly mountainous and there are usual sightings of klipspringers, bushbuck, kudu and other antelope plus numerous baboons and rock hyrax.


The area however boasts stunning scenic views, and guests can enjoy serene cruises through the beautiful Sengwe River. The Matusadona National Park is in the Eastern Basin of the Lake and here one can expect to see more animals. It is home to the Big Five and has herds of established and settled game which are used to boats and human activity. Herds of buffalo and elephant can be seen feeding on the shorelines along with Zebra and many antelope, lions can sometimes be heard in the night and are regularly seen from the tenders. There is great birding along the lake shore and many river inlets.

This untouched habitat and its variety of inhabitants provides for a photographers paradise. Stunning hues on the horizon synonymous with the surrounding majestic hills, unbeatable light, striking bush colours and wild subjects make for unique photo opportunities.

There are four large, permanent pools at Mana, hence the name, which means “four” in Shona. Consisting of 2,500 squared kilometers of some of the most pristine wilderness Africa has to offer – a literal paradise of wildlife…
…lies a place where luxury lives…
