Lake Kariba is the largest man-made lake in the world. It is 20 miles wide and over 140 miles long and is situated half way down the Zambezi River creating a natural border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. It was created by the impressive Kariba dam in the 1950s to form a giant reservoir. It is a beautiful and tranquil environment almost like an inland sea and a great place for relaxing surrounded by beautiful scenery. The wildlife is also abundant here with vast quantities of fish and birds as well as hippos and crocodiles. Canoeing on the lake is a popular way to see the wildlife up close.
You can also track black rhino as there is an Intensive Protection Zone within the park for a small but flourishing group of these endangered animals.
