Game Viewing from a Houseboat

MATUSADONA National Park provides the adventurer with a scenic combination of wildlife roaming grassy plains, and secluded bays and inlets which are home to hippo, crocodiles, elephant and buffalo.
A refreshing lunch

Situated on the shores of Lake Kariba, Matusadona is famous for the dramatic sight of a sunset over the lake - one of the most beautiful sights in Africa as the glowing sun slowly sinks across a cloud speckled sky.

Here yellow fades to orange and orange bursts to reds, crimson and purple, while the silent whisper of night creeps up from behind.

Matusadona occupies a lakefront wilderness which is home to an multitude of animals, among them elephant, black rhino, buffalo, eland, sable and roan. Waterbuck are at home on the floodplains where hippo graze at night. Crocodiles lurk and lie in wait, and the air is alive with expectancy.

All along the shoreline are the ghost forests of the mighty hardwood trees which grew here before the Zambezi was dammed to create this massive lake. These skeleton trees add to the lakes biological diversity - cormorants and fish eagles nest or perch atop the snags, while the submerged trunks anchor aquatic vegetation providing food and shelter to a great community of fish.

Indeed, Kariba is also renowned for its great fishing opportunities - bream and the feisty Tiger fish are what lure many anglers to these shores.

Matusadona is reached by air charter from the town of Kariba, which in turn is linked by air to Harare and Victoria Falls. Accommodation at Matusadona is in luxury safari camps along the shoreline.

This lovely area of Zimbabwe is all about sunrises and sunsets, cocktails and cruises, wildlife and fighting for Tiger.
