Binga To Kariba

Full Lake Binga to Kariba Cruise: 2 or 3 Nights

Departure day starts with an early morning collection from your Victoria Falls/Hwange/Livingstone Lodge or Hotel, followed by an interesting road transfer through the Tongan tribal lands en route to Binga. Departing from harbour by midday followed by a scrumptious buffet lunch while cruising the lake to the beautiful and remote Sengwe River. Late afternoon activities include exploring the remote Sengwe River system with its great birding and possible wildlife sightings followed by sundowners before returning to the boat for a relaxing beach braai.

After dinner we cruise through the night  to the Eastern Basin near the famous Bumi Hills Safari Lodge. We moor on one of the islands or the shoreline for a day of activities including fishing and game viewing from tender boats or game walks and game drives in the Matusadona National Park from one of our partner lodges.  Lunch will be served on board the main vessel.

The day ends with an evening sunset cruise with sundowners as you watch what are known by many “Aficionados” as one of the best sunsets in the world.

On day 3 we enjoy a leisurely breakfast aboard the main vessel, those on the 2 night cruise will then depart to Kariba Harbour for onward transfer.

For those staying aboard for a 3rd night will enjoy activities around the bays and inlets or simply relax by the shaded pool on the vessel. End the day with sundowners followed by dinner on board.

Day four we cruise to harbour as we enjoy breakfast and arrive for your midday onward transfer.
