Along the Zambezi River you will find Lake Kariba; Africa’s largest man made dam, 226km long and up to 40km wide. The lake covers an area of 5,000 square kilometres and has become a paradise for both wildlife and humans alike. The lake offers some of the best fishing in the world, particularly for the tiger fish, which in turn attracts the most iconic images of Lake Kariba; the fish eagle.
The lake is a nature lover’s dream, due to its incredible game and spectacular scenery. We recommend enjoying a few days on a houseboat to really take in the breathtaking surrounding whilst you drift along watching the wildlife go by, drinking from the lake’s shores.

We were bundled into a vehicle and dashed off to see a leopard within the first 30 minutes of arriving; it was an AWESOME start. Our guide completely made the entire experience. He was an exceptional birder and his best party trick was to point out the bird and then tell us the exact page we could find it in our book. We combined Zimbabwe with Mozambique, and our beach hotel felt like a complete hidden gem. The sand is like ‘moon dust’ and the hospitality and food were fantastic.
