Lake Kariba is amazing.. we did a sunset cruise and saw some hippos on the cruise. We also did a game drive and saw some other animals by the lake. I also recommend driving to Kariba Heights to see the view there. The Kariba Country Club in Kariba Heights is a good place to have a drink while enjoying the view but you have to pay $2 pp if you are a visitor. We managed to not pay the fee as we were just buying one drink ($1) and it seemed silly to pay an extra $2. Definitely worth the drive from Harare!

The south coast of Lake Kariba is spectacular. From Sinyati Gorge to Elephant point, the wildlife are abundant and the bird life particularly spectacular. Life on a houseboat is bliss and the best way to relax!

This beautiful lake is supposedly the largest man-made body of water in the world. It is 140 miles long, 20 miles wide at certain points, and features at least 10 islands. There is wonderful fishing here and a sunset cruise is a delightful experience.
