The accessibility: Kariba is some 365km from the capital Harare by road and a few charter planes are available. Air Zimbabwe no longer have routes to the resort town as it used to be. This therefore implies that a lot of visitors usually use the road to access the area. Not so many routes are on offer if you are to travel from Vic Falls to Kariba. Its either one goes via Livingstone (Zambia) and then connects the town through Siavonga (Kariba-Zambia) boarder or take the longer route via Bulawayo-Chegutu-Chinhoyi-Makuti. the 77km road from Makuti to Kariba has scenic views as it meanders across mountain valleys. Kariba is a place not to miss anyway.

General opinion:  Lake Kariba is a large, artificial lake situated on the Zambezi River in Kariba, Zimbabwe. Home to several islands like Chete Island, Sekula and Chikanka, it is a unique place with outstanding natural beauty. The town of Krabi is the hub of the lake’s tourist industry and houses about 20,000 people.
The climate in this region is hot all year round with two main seasons: the hot and the cold. Summers are exceedingly hot, and winters are mild and pleasant. October, also known as the ‘suicide month’ by locals, is the hottest month of the year.
Originally ... More a river running through the Tonga region, Lake Kariba was developed after a dam was built. Interestingly, the town of Kariba came into being as the construction workers on the dam had to be accommodated.

Useful tips: Wonderful. You can now get all your food requirements from Crispy Fresh in Kariba. It is a small, air-conditioned, very clean outlet that sells fresh fruit & veg, good quality meat and bread, dairy produce and most dry goods. You no longer have to transport your own food to Kariba.

Useful tips: I suggest using a Kariba-based destination when going to Kariba and her lake. Some things have changed. Ultimate Leisure Adventures, who are area-based and, in my opinion, very professional, gave us a memorable land and water experience. Magical!
