Your Experience

When onboard the Sovereign for your Kariba houseboat safari, you are surrounded by wilderness. Days are best spent cruising the islands and inlets by tender boat, casting a fishing line into the inviting water, lazing by the plunge pool or sipping on a cocktail, toasting the spectacular sunsets. Whether making use of the sizable sundeck and lounge area or getting some proper rest and relaxation in one of the 10 en-suite cabins, no two days are the same. There is also the chance to head out on smaller pontoon tender boats to explore the remote Sengwe River system and its stunning scenery and resident hippo and crocodile populations. The Sengwe is famed for great birding, including sightings of the rare Pel’s Fishing Owl and the Black Eagle.
