Welcome to the Catalina Website

The Catalina is a popular luxury catamaran houseboat, ideal for the perfect holiday on Lake Kariba in Zimbabwe.
Lake Kariba offers spectacular views, stunning sunsets, great fishing, boating opportunities and wonderful, relaxing holidays, just soaking up the sunshine.

It also offers some incredible photographic opportunities. This unique advantage, inherent to houseboat accommodation, will delight amateur and professional photographers alike.

There is no better fishing to be had, than offered on Lake Kariba. You have the opportunity of either fishing from the stern of the houseboat, or from one of three different tender boats. Lake Kariba is one of the largest expanses of fresh water in the world and is home to a diverse fish population, among them the well renowned Tigerfish (Hydrocynus vittatus). Hiring a houseboat is a great option when it comes to fishing expeditions.


A houseboat holiday is a great way to spend a few days under the sun and has the potential to turn your African experience into the vacation of a lifetime. Please do not hesitate to contact us on our contact us page should you have any further enquiry.
