Lake Kariba, one of the world’s largest man-made lakes, can be described as a great inland sea. Here, from land or water, one encounters unforgettable scenery. The Zimbabwean side of the lake has one thousand kilometres of shoreline, baked African fjords with placid backwaters and numerous islands. Elephants can be seen swimming between the shore and islands, a sight unique to Lake Kariba.
Tiger fishing on Lake Kariba will give even the most experienced fisherman a good run to be reeled in. The water of the lake is rich in food which allows this fish species to grow to record sizes, thereby becoming a sought-after trophy fish.
Along the southern shore of Lake Kariba is the Matusadona Game Reserve. Here you will encounter one of the last remaining sanctuaries of the endangered black rhino and the second largest concentration of wild lions in Africa. Other wildlife includes white rhino, elephant, giraffe, zebra, buffalo, leopard, hyena, cheetah, and over 240 species of birdlife.
