Perfect for Families & Beginners – stable & easy to sail.

Ideal for groups of 2-6 guests/boat. Start and end on our private beach in Kariba or we can collect/return you directly from the Kariba Ferry (weather permitting!). Your skipper will lead you on board our purpose-built Catamaran yachts. You will sail the open water and Matusadona shoreline viewing elephant and other animals on the grassy shores. This is a full-participation adventure for active people who have no problem living in board shorts and sarongs for a few days (Kariba is balmy year-round). Two cabins and a spacious deck sleep four comfortably, six if there are children.

Each boat needs a Skipper and every flotilla an Admiral. A guest with at least dingy experience can be a Skipper or we can supply one for you. We supply the Admiral who has extensive Kariba sailing and guiding experience.


  1. This is a participatory trip, you will be expected to help sail the boat under the guidance of your very experienced Admiral, this is half the fun of being in the Kariba Navy, so get stuck in and enjoy it. A proper old-school Zimbo holiday, huge fun for the right type of guest.
  2. Sailing & route subject to weather conditions at the sole discretion of the Fleet Admiral based on their assessment of current and forecast weather, (these are seldom adverse in the dry season). Plan B is camping at Warthogs Bush Camp (we have yet to ever activate plan B).
  3. Have a few beers but if you are planning a huge binge, rather take a houseboat!
