Lake Kariba

After the Victoria Falls, the Zambezi River flows for a couple of hundred kilometres before becoming Lake Kariba.
Lake Kariba was built half a century ago with the construction of the dam wall.  The Lake greatly benefits this region.  It generates hydro-electricity that supplies both Zimbabwe and Zambia.  Also, before this lake was flooded, the valley was burnt.  The ash from the fire created a thick lake bead.  The ash was rich and made a perfect environment for many different fish species.  The lake supports the local commercial fishing industry and is a valuable resource for wildlife and the locals that live in the area
The lake covers 5500 square kilometres and is a wonderful destination for tourists visiting Africa or Zimbabwe.  There are many places on earth where one can go fishing and boating, but none are like Lake Kariba.  Here it is likely that guests will spot majestic African wildlife drinking, resting or playing on the Lake’s edge.  It is rather common to see a pride of lions resting vigilantly as they watch for any opportunities that may present themselves in the bush.  The lake’s edge is home to diverse animals including Africa’s Big 5.  Here you will be in the constant company of the many grunting hippos and watchful crocodiles
