Overview

Spend 2 nights in Victoria Falls one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Victoria Falls are situated on the Zambezi River, which flows between Zimbabwe and Zambia, but Zimbabwe has always been the most popular access point. The force of the water sends a spray up into the air that can be seen from a 30 km (19 mile) distance. Due to its formation, excellent viewing of the fall is possible from many angles, making for great photographic opportunities. Victoria Falls is one of the world's most beautiful and romantic destinations. Designated a protected World Heritage Site, it is one of the few waterfalls in the world where one can witness up close the spectacular sight of over 550 million litres (145 million gallons) of water barrelling down a 2.5 km (1.5 mile) wide precipice.

Since its “discovery” by Scottish missionary and explorer Dr. David Livingstone in 1855, the Victoria Falls has attracted travellers from far and wide in search of adventure and discovery. Its exceptional scenery and elegant hotels have made it a favourite with honeymooners and those looking for a romantic getaway. The town of Victoria Falls is a traveller’s delight, with loads of adrenalin-packed adventures, beautiful attractions, restaurants and hotels. Renowned as a World Heritage Site, this region also boasts great game viewing in the pristine reserves surrounding the fall.

Spend 2 nights 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..
