Your gateway to Lake Kariba, Zimbabwe's water & wildlife wonderland

Mooring of Houseboats, Tenders and Speedboats

Habour with fuel jetty We provide full facilities for the mooring of over 100 houseboats, and the provision of boatsheds for 207 speedboats. The harbour is well protected from most storms with walls almost all around to provide protection from the waves etc. during rare, but sometime violent wind storms. The entire marina is protected by an alarmed and electric fence and is guarded 24 hours a day and at night with patrolling guards and dogs. The boat shed area is also fenced and alarmed. The harbour is well lit up at night for your boats security. No access to the harbour is allowed after hours without the express authority permission of Marineland Management and this will require pre-advise.
mooring The shoreline space within the harbour is limited by the Lakes level, the rates for mooring of houseboats is dependent on the width of your vessel and the space it requires for mooring ropes etc. Since storage of tender boats are charged separately for either shed or shore space. We provide boat sheds to those who wish to keep their speedboats in Kariba and not have to tow it to and from. A full inventory of your boat is written up by our security guards upon entry into our boatshed and again counterchecked and signed each and every time it is taken out and returned. We have a mobile compressor to regularly check the boat trailers tyre pressure and have battery recharging facilities should your battery have run down but we recommend disconnecting before storage. Please note batteries will only be re-charged on request by boat owners. There are three different rates for houseboat mooring. The categories are listed below:-
Houseboat Grade A
up to 4 metres
Houseboat Grade B
from 4.5 to 5.5 metres 
Houseboat Grade C
over 5.5 mtrs
