Captain, Chef and Deckhand


“Return to Eden” is a large, extremely spacious open-air pontoon type houseboat.

She boasts 6 spacious cabins, all en-suite with toilet, shower and wash hand basin. Each cabin has 2 single beds. Each cabin is fitted with a 15 amp (round pin) plug with 2 USB ports. Guests should check with the Captain or ensure that the generator is running before using electrical items such as hair-dryers.


The kitchen is well fitted and equipped.

“Return to Eden” has a splash pool to cool off in, on the bottom deck.

The top deck is very spacious, partially enclosed with glass and aluminum and is fitted with 2 dining tables and chairs to seat 12 people. Extra seating can be arranged using the table and chairs from the outdoor area.

For the “Sun lovers” there are sun-beds and a comfortable garden suite.

The most recent addition to Return to Eden has been a separate toilet and shower on the lower deck. Extra guests who sleep on deck will no longer need to share ablution facilities with guests in cabins..

Cold Space:
There are 2 large deep freezers and 1 extra freezer/ice box. Behind the bar there is a large icebox to keep those well-deserved drinks cool.
Tender Boats: 
For game viewing, fishing and sunset cruises there are 2 tender boats with outboard engines. These will comfortably carry 8 people.

Additional Information:
Catering could be arranged or self-caterers need only to request our chef to cook up delicious meals from what they bring.

“Return to Eden” is moored at Charara in Kariba, Zimbabwe.
