A great location in the middle of the Lake with staff that are really trying, but like many Zimbabwean destinations, the place is run down. Being in the middle of the lake the transfers across are costly and need to be undertaken in a proper lake going vessel given the huge expanse of water and waves. Gardens are overgrown and... More

We were there in Dec 2009. Camp was very run down. Not good management. Hardly any choice on food and drinks. Had ceiling fans in rooms but no power after 9pm. Was to hot to sleep at night. The boat didn't arrive on time to pic us up. Made us wait for hours in the sun. On arrival there was... More

We would like to thank all the staff at Tiger Bay for a truly wonderful holiday. Great food, perfect location and wonderful staff. We were a large group (23 of us) from all over the world spending some time together after our wedding, and we all had a great time. So wonderful to go somewhere where no request is a... More

We stayed over New Year, and really loved the romantic setting of the resort, the fishing + bird-watching opportunities, or just chilling out by the pool or near our room. I caught my first 4 fish ever (a real thrill) and deepened my tan. The room's aren't lavish, but the mosquito nets work and the beds are quite comfortable, (although... More

I stayed at Tiger Bay Lodge in Kariba for five nights in September 2012, with my partner, toddler and Mum-in-law. This was my first visit to Zimbabwe, and the Tiger Bay Lodge proved to be an oasis. The location was spectacular, we saw lots of game at dusk going to the lake shore for water. The accommodation was comfortable and... More

My daughter, Sarah got married at Tiger Bay on the 7th July 2012. We hired the Zambezi Trader to sleep 50 guests and Tiger Bay hosted the remaining 35 guests. The setting and ambience made such a wonderful background to a truly African bush wedding. Jonathan and Sarah's photo's were done on the shorelines of the Ume River, such a... More

This was my first trip to Zimbabwe. I must admit it was spectacular. I attended my brother and new sister in laws wedding reception at Tiger Bay Lodge. It was marvellous and the scenery was superb. I will definitely recommend this lodge to any one visit Kariba, Zimbabwe. You are able to experience natural all around in a comfortable setting.... More

We recently visited Tiger Bay Lodge on Lake Kariba, Zimbabwe, to attend my son's wedding reception. This venue is truly idyllic. It offers unique accommodation and leisure facilities and boasts a sense of calm and tranquility that can only be found in the African bush. The staff's efficiency and welcoming attitude, together with the general surroundings, wildlife viewing and fishing... More

After many years of hearing about this resort we finally got a chance to visit for a weekend. A wonderful experience. Scenic accommodation right on the Umi River. Hippos were munching the vegetation right outside our chalet during the night. A super experience.
