Overview

Lake Kariba is one of the largest man-made lakes in the world! Over 5,500 square kilometres in area, it is also one of Zimbabwe’s premier tourist destinations and is famous for its exciting wildlife and exceptional fishing. Houseboats are ideally positioned if you are incorporating a holiday at Victoria Falls and Hwange National Park. Sometimes called the golden triangle, these three locations are all within easy driving distance of each other. Together they include a natural wonder of the world, Victoria Falls, pristine big five game viewing in Hwange and ultimate relaxation, game viewing and good fishing aboard a lovely houseboat on Kariba.

The lake is 281 kms long and at its widest point is 40 kms wide. The lake is studded with islands and fringed with magnificent mountain ranges like the Matusadona Mountains and the whole landscape is supremely beautiful. Sunrises and sunset are indescribably beautiful and the absolute magic of this place can only be understood by those who have visited it and fallen in love with it. The warm clear waters are home to over forty species of fish, the most notable of course being the tiger fish for which anglers come from around the world to catch.

The lush shoreline vegetation supports a profusion of bird and wild life, which is ideal when cruising on your house boat or even on one of the smaller tender boats, as you explore the shoreline or the many channels and inlets. All in all if you are looking for a holiday of total relaxation, with the added attraction of game and bird viewing, some of the best fishing available, some of the most outstanding scenic and photographic opportunities....a Kariba House Boat holiday is ideal for you..
