Kariba Attractions

Kariba Sunset

1. Lake Kariba - It offers spectacular views, stunning sunsets, great fishing, boating opportunities, water sports or wonderful relaxing holidays or weekends just soaking up the sunshine. Gamefish, particularly Tigerfish, which was among the indigenous species of the Zambezi river system, now thrive on the kapenta, which in turn encourages tourism. Both Zambia and Zimbabwe are now attempting to develop the tourism industry along their respective coasts of Lake Kariba. Fish eagles, cormorants and other water birds patrol the shorelines, as do occasional herds ofelephants. A houseboat holiday is a great way to spend a few days under the sun, and the best time to plan it is over a full moon. The twilight atmosphere between sunset and full moon rise is quite magical.

2. Canoeing Safari - Apart from the traditional way of driving along the parks' game viewing roads, canoeing and boat safaris are popular alternatives. At Lake Kariba, which has abundant elephant, buffalo, rhino and smaller game living on its banks, boats can be hired for a day or for over a week. Canoeing safaris ranging from three to 10 days are especially popular between April and November along the Zambezi River past the Mana Pools flood plains.

3. Hire a house boat - this is the best way to experience the real treasures of the lake. Chug around and stop off whenever you see fit. Get up close and personal with wildlife on the banks on the lake. Fish to your hearts content and watch the sun go down with an ice cold beer... Read a book with your favourite glass of wine while sun bathing on the deck... The lake is your oyster!
