BINGA TO KARIBA CRUISE
TYPICAL THREE NIGHT FULL LAKE BINGA TO KARIBA CRUISE
This starts with an early morning collection from your Victoria Falls Lodge or Hotel, for an interesting road transfer through tribal lands
en route to Binga. We will set sail at midday enjoying a scrumptious lunch whilst we cruise to the Sengwe Basin. On arriving in the late
afternoon the main vessel will moor on the shoreline allowing use of the smaller tender boats to explore the remote Sengwe River system.
With stunning scenery, resident hippo & crocodile populations, great birding and possible game sightings before returning to the main vessel
over sundowners to the main boat for a relaxing beach braai around the camp fire.
We set sail before dawn through the expansive Sengwa Basin as we cruise almost half the length of this iconic lake that borders both Zambia
and Zimbabwe arriving in the Bumi basin in the Matusadona National Park for our afternoon tender boat activities and evening sundowners.
Day three starts with a light continental breakfast followed by morning activities from the tender boats or optional extra of a Game Drive/
Game Walk or a visit to the remote Tonga fishing community. Lunch is served as we cruise further down lake to Palm or Gordons Bay to moor
in a secluded inlet before spending the afternoon exploring the Lake shores and Bays for wildlife sightings followed by evening sundowners
and snacks as we watch what are known as some of the best sunsets in Africa.
Early morning departure for Kariba Harbour, breakfast will be served as we cruise across the Lake to arrive in harbour before mid-day and
continue with your safari.
Adding a Fourth Night to your Full Lake Binga to Kariba Cruise.
All of our three night full Lake cruises have options to add an extra night – after breakfast the three night clients depart for Kariba Harbor by
boat transfer and we sail onwards to Antelope and Zebra Island. After lunch we explore the islands with their abundant hippo & crocodile
populations, or for those interested try your luck with tiger or bream fishing followed by sundowners before cruising back to the main boat.
Early morning activities before we set sail to Kariba harbour to arrive before mid-day to continue your safari.
While it is our intention to supply as much detail as possible to our cruise itinerary (overnight mooring, described routes, activities etc). There is
a certain amount of flexibility built into the itinerary and on occasion it may be necessary or desirable to make alterations. The trip details and
general guide to what to expect on a cruise and any mention of specific destinations or wildlife is by no means a guarantee that they will be visited
or encountered (Lake Levels, Green Season, Weather) – All effect the wildlife experience. Zambezi Cruise and Safaris reserves the right to amend or
change any route, activity or destination
