The world’s largest man-made lake and reservoir, this immense mass of water is a breathtaking sight and it’s setting between the unspoilt landscapes of Zimbabwe gives it a serenely natural appearance. What’s more, it is surrounded by private concessions and game reserves and home to a huge array of animals, such as crocodiles and hippos; and draws several other small and big game. Lake Kariba provides excellent opportunities for houseboat safari holidays which put a luxury nautical twist on your African safari holiday, or if you’d prefer enjoying it from dry land, there are some fantastic lodges to choose from.

The park offers excellent game viewing opportunities all year round, but especially at the shallow saltpans during dry season (May to October) when vegetation is sparse and wildlife congragates to drink at the pans. When the rains come the pans fill with water, the scenery changes and the bush blooms. The animals tend to disperse but new bird species flock into the park making rainy season an ideal time for birding enthusiasts.


Lake Kariba boasts some of the world’s best fishing and game viewing, since on it’s shores there are reputedly more lion per square meter than on any reserve elsewhere in Africa. Together with predators there are numbers of crocodile, hippo and birdlife, and jawdropping sunsets (a photographer’s dream!), with silhouetted dead trees emerging from the waters. Enjoy game drives from one of the rustic camps dotted along the lake shores or spend a few days on a house boat taking in the spectacular scenery and wildlife gathering on the banks.



The 22 hour overnight ferry from Victoria Falls to Lake Kariba negates the need to travel long and arduous journeys over remote dirt roads or expensive charter flights. From Victoria Falls regional direct flights can be caught to Botswana, Cape Town, Johannesburg, Mauritius or most other major air hubs in Africa.
