In the real sense, a safari cruise in Africa more popularly means a safari undertaken aboard a houseboat, a vessel smaller than a cruiseship, but that offers an unforgettable experience right at par with any other safari. Steaming down Lake Kariba- a massive lake that has created its own unique ecosystem- cruising through the drowned forest, watching the inexplicably beautiful sunsets, trying a hand at fishing, watching elephants quench their thirst in the clear, blue water, relaxing under the glowing night sky and having a scrumptious meal at the end of the day are some memorable moments that a houseboat cruise offers. If you want a safari ride that is not bumpy or scruffy or too adventurous, houseboat safari is the best way to go.
You can relax on the boat with a drink in hand and cruise by the Chobe river shore watching hippos, buffaloes, fish eagles and crocodiles having their normal day. Or go aboard a boat cruise to watch the animals by nightfall when the glowing sun goes down casting an eerie spell on the shores of Chobe while you snack or drink your stress away! You can also navigate through the waterways of the Okavango Delta on a motorboat or a mokoro while being left spellbound by the beauty of the varied ecosystems being carried by this abundant water system.
