Kariba Bush Club Activities
Sunset & Dinner Cruises
Spend a couple of lazy hours exploring our private islands that are home to an abundance of wildlife including impala, reedbuck, defasa waterbuck, eland, kudu, zebra, wildebeest, warthog, hippos, crocodiles and occasional elephants, to name some.
We also offer our guests the option of a “dinner cruise”. This entails a sunset cruise combined with an early dinner on one of our private islands. Wine and dine under the African skies, whilst surrounded by nature, Lake Kariba and all the sights and sounds that go with them.
Of course, being right on Lake Kariba‘s shores this is an absolute must for those who enjoy fishing! We offer both half or full day trips – rods, tackle, and a packed meal are supplied.
For those who are not interested in “serious fishing”, we do have another option that may interest you – pond fishing for various species of bream. This activity is also very popular with children as catching is guaranteed, no matter how inexperienced you may be! (Please note that we operate on a catch-and-release basis on all fishing trips for conservation reasons)
Our guided bush walks take place on one of our private islands, usually in the early morning. Our guides will show you how to identify different species of wildlife by looking at their spoor (foot prints) and dung - keep your eyes open for wildlife such as impala, reedbuck, defasa waterbuck, eland, kudu, zebra, wildebeest, warthog, hippos and crocodiles.
Crocodile Farm Tours
A visit to us is definitely incomplete without a guided tour of Zongwe Farming. The farm is home to over 90,000 crocodiles in various stages of growth, including over 2500 adult breeders alone. The breeding dams – all left completely natural and boasting a haven of birdlife – offer everyone an opportunity to enjoy the thrill of feeding the adult crocodiles. The birdlife that these dams are home to is truly incredible– flocks of hundreds of Sacred Ibis are an everyday sighting; sightings of eight or more African Fish Eagle in one tree is not an unusual – the most Fish Eagle we have officially spotted in one tree is sixteen! Other species of birds include vultures, plovers, weavers, bishops, kingfishers, storks, herons, egrets, crakes, and more. This is definitely a place to keep your cameras ready and at hand!
