Make Matusadona part of your safari from

Enjoy the ultimate in barefoot luxury on a family holiday aboard your private safari cruiser in Zimbabwe.

The Matusadona is the only luxury motor cruiser of her kind on Lake Kariba. Easily accessed from Marineland harbour near the town of Kariba or from Bumi Hills Safari Lodge, the options to combine a traditional African Safari with a private cruise are endless. With spacious airconditioned cabin accommodation for up to six passengers, situated right on the waterline, you’ll feel at one with nature. With the gentle lapping of waves, frequent grunts of hippos, the distant lion’s roar and the eerie cry of the Fish Eagle, you are in the real bush whilst cocooned in the lap of luxury.

Lake Kariba, 220 km from east to west and 40 km wide, is surrounded by the Matusadona National Park and a number of wildlife areas on the Zimbabwean side of the lake and is famous for its overwhelming sunsets, wildlife viewing and tiger fishing. Matusadona offers the ideal getaway for a family holdiay, a romantic honeymoon or simply a timeless break from the rigours of “real life”.
