About Meremaid Houseboat

The Meremaid is a large, fully air-conditioned pontoon houseboat moored at Binga on the Victoria Falls side of Lake Kariba.

There are six double air-conditioned bedrooms and three full bathrooms with modern showers, baths, toilets and basins. There is a fully equipped galley with three fridges, one huge deep freezer, a microwave, a gas stove, and a bread-making machine. There is also a laundry room.

On the top deck is a Jacuzzi, loungers and a fully equipped air-conditioned bar and lounge area. There is a CD player and satellite TV. Guests need to bring their own DStv smart card. We have an under-cover dining area and some gym equipment and an internal telephone system.

On the bottom deck of the boat are the deck crew quarters and the storage rooms. The crew comrises a captain, a cook and two deckhands.

The fishing is very good on this side of Lake Kariba. The best tiger fishing is at Sengwe River which is a good days cruise from Binga. Relax and enjoy the vastness of the Sengwa Basin and the contrasting narrowness of the Chete Gorge.
