Info about Lake Kariba

Overview

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 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.

Overall Guide : 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... more no longer have to transport your own food to Kariba.

Overall Guide : 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!
