Victoria Falls Activities | Kariba Ferry
The Idyllic and Easy Way to Get from Victoria Falls to Kariba
The "Sea Lion" - Kariba Car and Passenger Ferry Service
The drive on the Zimbabwe side is extremely long and arduous, the only route via Karoi and Binga.
It is a remote dirt road through the mountains behind Matusadona and has not been maintained for many years and really it is only recommended for 4 x 4's or seasoned travellers.
You can drive through Zambia, this is a relatively good tarred road, and will take you approximately 6 to 7 hours via Siavonga and Livingstone. However depending on your passport you might incur the costs of a Visa to enter Zambia.
The newly re-introduced Kariba Ferry Service has made it easy again. The Service operates between Andorra harbour in Kariba Town and Mlibizi in the western end of the lake. They can accommodated up to 70 people and 15 vehicles
It's a an overnight journey of 22 hours. During this time you can completely relax and take in the breathtaking scenery of lake Kariba as you cruise its full length.
Three meals are included Lunch, Dinner and Breakfast, plus morning and afternoon tea is also provided. There is also a cash bar available for those inevitable sundowners.
Sleeping is communal on chair-beds in the central lounge area - mattresses and all bedding is provided. There are toilets and hot showers available.
This is a great cruise and not only does it get you from A to B but is also a really enjoyable part of your holiday. We have only done it once, but we loved it, and are looking forward to doing it again. See the bottom of this page for scheduled sailing dates.
