Kariba Ferries


Hi guys, do you know if the ferry will operate on the 17th or 18th Dec at all? Thanks!
Hi guys, hope all is well? Do you happen to know if the ferry will be operating on the 16th or 18th Dec? Cheers 🙂
We've booked for the 14th of April 2020 leaving from Kariba to Mlibizi. But still no other bookings yet so it will probably not sail..

We REALLY hope there will be more bookings so we can experience the ferry crossing 🥺🥺

So maybe more people for the 14th April?? 🙏

With all that is going on in the world as far as the pandemic is concerned, to jab or not to jab, wear a mask or not, social distance or not etc. who really cares when all we want to do is get out in the fresh air and relax. What we really need is for our land borders to be fully re-opened and allow tourism to resume to its potential. Lets all put a positive thought to this objective please.

In the mean time we are receiving quite a lot more enquiries than before and are hopeful that a relaxation of the border restrictions in the not too distant future will see us being able to resume normal services.

We are taking bookings right now and some dates are looking really positive and who knows your enquiry/booking on any given date could mean the difference between us confirming that sailing and having to disappoint those that have taken the plunge.

Please contact us via our our email [email protected] or the website www.karibaferries.com or WhatsApp 0772 232155

I am ready and waiting for your contact. Please note that all bookings at present are obligation free whilst there is so much uncertainty in relation to the pandemic. So you have nothing to lose by making a booking

Regrettably, due to non arrivals, we have to advise that we cannot confirm a booking until we are in receipt of a 50% deposit which is due within 14 days of making the booking. Should this not occur, Kariba Ferries reserves its right to resell the booking. Final Payment is due 30 days prior to sailing, likewise should this not occur; we reserve the right to resell the booking. In the case of late bookings, space may be secured via cash payment or electronic transfer.


50% of payment is required with in 14 days after receiving your invoice, remainder of the fare is due at least 30 days prior to sailing.

Cancellations will be charged at the following rates:

31 days or More – 10% of Fare
15 – 30 days – Loss of deposit
14 days or less – forfeiture of full fare


2016 has so far been a very testing period for us. The crash of the South African Rand caused many cancellations and resulted in our having to cancel a number of sailings but we remain committed to providing a service as and when we can.

In addition the political situation has not helped us but the travelling public can be assured that they are at a very low risk of becoming embroiled in any problems in Zimbabwe as our nation is generally peace loving. We believe that people are more at risk of being hi-jacked or held up in South Africa than coming to harm in Zimbabwe

We have many "Provisional sailings" for the rest of this year and also for next year. Please do not be put off by them being provisional, if we get enough people interested and committed to a sailing we will confirm it as soon as possible but we cannot provide a service without passengers.

Please make contact with us and let's see what we can do to get you aboard and have a memorable trip with us.
