HAIL SIR OSIS OF THE RIVER!
The idea of Sir Osis of the River - floating pleasure craft - was hatched by the previous owners in 2006, as an extension to the rustic yet comfortable, truly African Bush Experience already offered at Kalizo Lodge.
Built with loving attention to the ultimate objective, the Spargs welded·twosteel pontoons together to create a floating platform from which to· luxuriate in the mighty Zambezi River's charms.·
Here you will find no expensive opulence, just the simple, comfortable basics in genuine African style.
Sir Osis of the River offers the freedom to explore the birding, take a fishing trip in comfort. We have a host of delicious ideas to offer the keen guest.
Sir Osis' design delivers guests a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to partake fully in the pleasures and lifestyle of the mighty Zambezi River.
Up to 30·people at a time can take a sunset/booze cruise and get totally involved in Zambezi life, spending time drifting downriver in the comfort of Sir Osis' arms, with experienced staff who love nature and are well versed in the ways of the River.
