Unique Cruises on Lake Kariba

Located in Zimbabwe is the world’s third largest man-made lake. Situated about
halfway down the magnificent Zambezi River and approximately 90km after it
spills over the magnificent Victoria Falls.
This iconic Lake is a unique and largely undiscovered African destination. Its
vast expanse (270km in length) of aqua marine waters form a boundary between
Zimbabwe and Zambia. The expansive shorelines are home to large populations
of wildlife and bird life. Dotted with islands, this picturesque deep blue lake is
set against the dramatic backdrop of the Matusadona mountain range
