The remote idyllic atmosphere of Lake Kariba wonderfully lends itself to the beautiful views of what looks like a spectacular inland sea. Fed by the twisting Zambezi river, at 140 miles long and up to 20 miles wide Lake Kariba is in fact one of the largest man made lakes. Watching the sun set and the moon rise over the flat water fringed by mountains and forests, you will feel as if you have stumbled across an undiscovered part of Zimbabwe. Located on the shore of the lake, the Matusadona National Park is a wildlife magnet with the Big Five, antelope, porcupines and fish eagle journeying to the fresh water source. To the south of Lake Kariba, further up the Zambezi, sits the Mana Pools National Park another of Zimbabwe’s UNESCO World Hertiage Sites. The dramatic landscapes of cliffs towering over the river and flood plains holds a huge assortment of wildlife, their congregation around the river considered one of the most outstanding natural spectacles Africa has to offer.
