Scenic Safari Sanyati Gorge
This is a scenic trip up the Sanyati River Gorge by speed boat. The river is navigable for about 10 km. The Sanyati Gorge, which is directly opposite Spurwing Island, cuts into the Matusadona mountains providing its own dramatic landscape. During the rainy season waterfalls flow in abundance along the course of the gorge • bird life is prolific and some rarities may be seen including the Black Eagle and African Finfoot.
Situated in the Matusadona National Park, Spurwing Island is ideally situated to offer a wide range of game viewing activities. Game viewing options incorporate both the water (by boat) and land (by foot and by vehicle) to ensure that our guests have access to some of the finest game and bird viewing in the country.
Spurwing IslandGame Cruises
This is game viewing along the shoreline by speed boat or covered pontoon. Game viewing from the water adds a whole new experience to the guest’s safari. Unique to Kariba is its forest of ‘dead’ trees which is home to a wide variety of nesting and roosting birds. Mid-morning cruises allow the guests to encounter elephants bathing at the waters edge, watch game coming down for a drink, and see crocodiles basking in the sun.
Afternoon cruises will meet game coming down to the shoreline for a refreshing drink after the mid-day heat. Guests relax with a sun downer whilst watching the spectacular Kariba sunset casting eerie shadows in orange and purple hues across the lake.
