Zambezi Cruise Safaris The Umbozha

Zambezi Cruise Safaris The Umbozha

Lake Kariba although not as easy to access as Victoria Falls or Chobe National Park, is one of Zimbabwe's prime destinations and well worth the effort in getting there. The world's largest man-made lake, at one time, is home to phenomenal wildlife and the scenery on and around the lake is breath-taking. Its wildlife and safari opportunities cannot be overstated and now you can embark on a luxury cruise safari on one of Zambezi Cruise Safari's vessels. Either traverse the lake completely from Kariba to Binga or enjoy two and three night circular cruises (see itineraries below).

The fundamental difference between these cruises and other Kariba houseboat safaris are the set departure dates that individuals, couples or small groups can join without having to hire the entire houseboat, much like an ocean going cruise liner. Although private hire for larger groups can also be arranged.

The Zambezi Cruise Safaris' three floating hotels are of different sizes to cater for varying groups and cruises (see below). They are fully air-conditioned with mostly en-suite bathrooms, covered lounge, dining area, bar and fully equipped kitchen. The facilities and rooms are beautifully designed to make you feel at home and although they're not "Luxury Cruise Ships" in a first world sense (possible 3-4 star) they are without doubt the best Lake Kariba has to offer.

Lake Kariba is all about relaxing in the sun whilst cruising the lake and taking in the remarkable scenery, sundecks and jacuzzi pools make these boats ideal. Morning and afternoon activities included in the Zambezi Cruise Safaris are fishing, game viewing and bird watching on the accompanying tender boats. For those wanting a walking safari, this can also be arranged on demand.
