Siansowa Lake Kariba
Kariba Bush Club is a unique guesthouse and camping destination along the idyllic shores of Lake Kariba. Put your fishing skills to the test by catching the infamous Tigerfish; lounge in a pool side hammock whilst fish eagles swoop in the sky above; spot Zambia’s amazing wildlife on a canoe safari, or get scared out of your wits on a tour of Africa's largest Nile crocodile farm! Whatever you decide to do, we are here to make sure it will be unforgettable.
Kariba Bush Club was established in 2003 as a family owned backpacker's lodge and guesthouse able to accommodate 32 guests. As the word of our secret location spread, we have grown to include another guesthouse, four en-suite lake view chalets and two houseboats, now being able to accommodate a maximum of 76 guests excluding the campsite. Our mainland campsite is situated under a large grassy canopy and our new island campsite provides an opportunity for a real bush experience!
Travelers to Lake Kariba who are in search of spectacular wildlife and fishing opportunities may look no further than Kariba Bush Club’s Maaze Island bush camp. Situated on a private and secluded island, stocked with prime game, including impala, eland, bushbuck and the occasional elephant, we offer game walks and fishing excursions. The camp itself which rustically blends into its surroundings is comprised of 6 tents each with their own shower and toilet. A Boma with a bar, lounge and dining area provides a space for relaxation whilst soaking up the jaw dropping views out into the bay. There is a kitchen set up for self-catering, but full board can be organized on request for those who wish to take it a little bit easier. For the romantic at heart, full moon cruises combined with dinner on one of the sandy beaches will be available during the dry season (April-October), weather dependent.
At the main lodge, guests can enjoy a fully stocked bar, all our safari activities, a swimming pool with stunning views, self-catering kitchen and braai facilities as well as delicious homemade meals prepared by our cooks.

To get here from Livingstone/Lusaka it is best to get an early start, as timing of public transport may not be totally reliable once you are in our District. Take the same bus as you would for Lusaka/Livingstone, but only travel with it as far as Choma. From Choma, ask for a minibus that can take you to Maamba, which will take approximately 2.5 hours. It is important to remember that you need to get to MAAMBA, not Sinazongwe! As you enter the town of Maamba, there is a boom gate across the road. This is the SECOND boom you would have come across with the minibus (do not count any booms on the main Livingstone-Lusaka road, only the ones in the Batoka-Maamba road - the first boom being in Sinazeze). Ask the driver to drop you at the gate. There will be a security guard there with a grey uniform. If you ask him to help you get a lift to Siansowa he will find you the right transport, but it may take some time. Be sure you are on a vehicle that is coming all the way to Siansowa, as if it is a vehicle that turns off somewhere or does not come all the way down the road, you might find yourself stuck. Travel time is not easy to predict, as buses and taxis wait until they are full before departing, but you will get here in the end and we're sure you will have a lot of fun doing it!
*Pick-ups from Maamba are available on request for US $75 return per vehicle
