Kariba Ferry

by Wolfgang
(St. Francis Bay, South Africa)

Hi, As one alternative we are thinking to go by boat from Vic Falls to Kariba. The question we have is what kind of car we need from Vic Falls to Mlibizi.

In this alternative, we would further go from Kariba to Harare with the same rental car, instead of flying via Lusaka.
Many thanks in advance - Wolfgang, South Africa

Roads are good
by: Tony

Hi Wolfgang

The roads from Vic Falls to Mlibizi and from Kariba to Harare are all tar roads and therefore any normal sedan car is fine. On the whole the roads are in good condition only the VF to Milibiz road there are a few potholes that's all.

House Boats

Hi There,

Love you website, I am so excited about our having our Honeymoon in Vic Falls/Kariba.

We will be visiting 16-22 Apr 2011

Something I've always heard about is taking a house boat trip on Lake Kariba. I didn't notice anything about this on your site. I did visit other sites but they where boring by comparison in information provided.

Given there is simply so much to see an do what feedback could you provide?

Much appreciated and thanks again for an informative unbiased site.

Kirsty & Tony

Kariba Choices
by: Tony

Hi Kirsty and Tony

Thank you for your positive comments about our site. We really appreciate it!

We have a small section on houseboats which you can see here Kariba Houseboats. Kariba is a whole new website really and we haven't got round to that yet. It is a favorite part of the world for us tho.

How many of you are travelling? If its your honeymoon presumably only the two of you. Its difficult to find a houseboat that caters for two people. They normally cater for 8 to 10 people and the cost is per boat, so when divided by 8 it is not too expensive, but divided by 2 it works out too much for most people.

If you are doing Kariba, we would recommend Either the newly re-built Bumi Hills Lodge, which is magnificent, or Musango Safari Camp, in both of these places you will be able to game drives on land or game cruises on the Lake. Phenomenal!!!!

If you let us know you likes, dislikes and interests as well as your budget, we would be able to put an itinerary together for you, that would hopefully maximise your time there.
