Escape to Serenity

on Zimbabwe's Inland Sea

Imagine a majestic expanse of azure water reflecting the boundless African sky. Lake Kariba, Zimbabwe, beckons you to a unique safari defined by serene beauty and endless horizons. Explore aboard a houseboat, your floating getaway into this natural wonderland. Fish for elusive tigerfish, watch elephants gather along the shore, and toast sunsets that paint the water with vibrant hues.

Lake Kariba offers a breathtaking escape where tranquillity and adventure entwine. Let the rhythmic sway of the water and the vibrant wildlife lull you into a slower pace of life. It’s time to set sail on your unforgettable Lake Kariba journey.

More than just stunning sunsets and spectacular views, Lake Kariba is home to various species of game fish, birdlife, and wildlife. Nestled between mountains, it acts as a natural border between Zimbabwe and Zambia. The Zimbabwean side of the lake boasts about 1,000 kilometres (621 miles) of shoreline and covers nearly 6,000 square kilometres (2,316 square miles).

On a Kariba safari, expect to see fish eagles circling the skies, herds of elephants, hippos, and crocodiles along the bushy shorelines. Fishermen will delight in catching species such as tigerfish, barbel, labeo, jack, bream, tilapia, catfish, and the mighty vundu.

Houseboats are the preferred way to explore Kariba, offering fishing and canoeing excursions directly from the boat. Due to its remote location, a safari to Lake Kariba is often combined with other Zimbabwean safari destinations like Hwange National Park or Mana Pools for a longer, more comprehensive itinerary.
