The Matusadona

Located on Lake Kariba, one of Africa's most iconic lakes, The Matusadona is by far one of the best safari cruises in Africa. Spot hippos, crocs and elephant from the upper deck, with its Jacuzzi, bar and lounge areas - perfect for chilling out and enjoying views of the bordering mountains.

This houseboat has three ensuite cabins located on lower deck, perfect for groups of friends or family, as well as a dining area, kitchen and sitting room on middle deck. The full time live about crew of four are on hand at all times. The food is good, the service great, and the views are just mesmerising.
