Route of House boats

Can a house boat go from Vic falls to Kariba so that my guests can use the boat as a 2 day transfer instead of having to fly to Kariba.

Do you have a route map?

No Houseboats from Victoria Falls
by: Tony

Hi Annelie

Unfortunately that is not possible. The Zambezi river below the Victoria falls is narrow and has lots of rapids which is where they do the White water rafting. Houseboats are only available from the western end of lake Kariba as the river flows into the lake, which is about 300kms from Victoria Falls by road.
If you are looking at houseboats on the eastern side of the lake which is Kariba town as opposed to Binga on the western end of the lake and you don't want to fly your clients then you could road transfer them to Mlibzi about 250kms from Vic Falls and they can catch the Kariba ferry across the lake to Kariba town.
