Activities: Kariba, Zimbabwe

Lake Kariba is primarily a wildlife safari and magnificent fishing destination, offered by all lodges and houseboats. The vast majority of safaris in Africa are land-based – 4 x 4 drives and walking in the wilds with armed professional guides. Lake Kariba dramatically adds the extra dimension of the water for wildlife viewing, sailing, cruises and fishing.

Fishing for the fighting Tiger is an adrenaline sport that all fishermen love and every October Lake Kariba is home to the International Tiger Fishing Tournament that attracts hundreds of teams from all over the world. This acclaimed event has been held annually for more than 50 years. Bream fishing is also excellent for the table.
