Kariba Safari

The ultimate guide to your next Kariba Safari

Get to Know Kariba

Wrestle with a tigerfish, drift through a pod of hippos and soak up the charm of a vast unspoilt lake. 

Visiting Lake Kariba almost feels like going on a seaside holiday. Imagine a seaside holidays came with elephants feeding next to your boat, pods of hippos grunting at night and giant crocodiles basking on the shore.

Kariba is the biggest man-made lake in the world, so big that in some areas you can't even see land, which adds to its seaside allure. One of the best ways to explore the dam is to charter a houseboat. Some of those available are quite basic and rustic, used by oligarchs to cruise the Mediterranean Sea. Try to book a houseboat that is equipped with a smaller motorboat to enable you to explore nearer the shore and between the gorges.

If there is one sport that Kariba is famous for, it's fishing. Anglers return year after year to battle it out with the tigerish that famously live in these waters.
