Baines River Safaris


Experience the ultimate in barefoot luxury. Combine a Zambian safari at the intimate Baines’ River Camp with a few nights exploring the vast wilderness of Lake Kariba on board the Matusadona, Zimbabwe’s most prestigious private safari cruiser.

Showcasing uninterrupted views across the Zambezi, Baines’ River Camp defines luxury safari, but without the fuss. In one of Africa’s last remaining true wilderness areas, enjoy uncontrived game viewing by boat, canoe or vehicle, feel the thrill of catching (and releasing) a Tiger Fish and end the day on a sandbar with a game of boule as the sun sets over the Zambezi. And in between all this, there should be time for a relaxing beauty treatment.

Then escape to the world’s largest man-made lake to wake up with a different view each morning and elephants on your doorstep. A cruise on the Matusadona will add an unforgettable dimension to any African safari. Operating within the waters of the Matusadona National Park and its surrounding wildlife reserves, the Matusadona sleeps six passengers in three elegant en-suite cabins. At 95 ft., laid out over three decks and decorated with rich, classical furnishings, the Matusadona is undoubtedly Lake Kariba’s ultimate choice for a family getaway.
