This Lake Kariba tour includes 4 nights at the Bumi Hills Safari Lodge, sitting on top of a hill it overlooks the vastness of Lake Kariba. It also provides a range of game viewing activities including guided game drives, walking safaris, safaris by boat, sunset cruises on Lake Kariba, bird watching, hide sits and casual fishing.

Lake Kariba is the world’s largest artificial lake and reservoir by volume and it lies on the Zambezi River 1,300 kilometers upstream from the Indian Ocean. It is situated along the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. Lake Kariba was filled between 1958 and 1963 following the completion of the Kariba Dam located at its northeastern end thus flooding the Kariba Gorge on the Zambezi River. A wildlife rescue operation from 1958-64 in Zimbabwe (then Rhodesia) was of biblical proportions. As the gorge was dammed, and the Zambezi Valley flooded, animals were trapped on ever-diminishing islands and more than 6,000 were saved, and relocated to the mainland.

This Lake Kariba safari is fully customisable to best suit your requirements with more or less nights available. Please contact us for a quote for your desired itinerary.
