About Kariba

Fifteen years ago, the Kariba team designed the very first camping and outdoor mobile HOT Shower in South Africa. The original Kariba Bush Shower, also known as the Bos Stort, was introduced to campers and 4x4 off-road enthusiasts. A simple but compact gas operated appliance could heat water on demand and double as a shower. Over time technology and global trade changed, and with it, the development of new models were introduced. Today the Kariba team is the world market pioneers of “camping hot water appliances”, leaders and experts in their field of expertise. They continue to strive towards excellence in both products and service, having sold over 7,000 Kariba appliances in Southern Africa alone. Equipt is proud to be the new exclusive US Distributor.
