Many will argue that staying on a house boat at Lake Kariba is the best way to explore this magnificent area as well as being a fascinating and exciting way to live for a few days. The types of Kariba houseboats offering accommodation can vary and includes options such as Pontoon Houseboats, Yachts and Cabin Cruisers. Houseboats may accommodate only a few people but some may accommodate 50 or more! They offer the perfect platform to view game from the water’s edge as well as fishing until your heart is content. Where else in the world can you view African game, catch a Tiger fish and sip on an ice- cold beer, all at the same time!

Lake Kariba houseboats are designed for relaxation. Most come with a full team on board (including a captain) responsible for cooking and cleaning so your only real worry is deciding which sundowner to enjoy next! Below we have a selection of Kariba houseboats to choose from to start your journey and exploration in a place where it is always sunny and the call of the African Fish Eagle starts your day in beautiful Africa.
