Lake Kariba Budget Travel

Bordering Zambia and Zimbabwe, Lake Kariba budget travel offers the best of both regions

Lake Kariba is considered one of the world’s largest reservoirs and took 5 years to fill on completion of the Kariba Hydroelectric Dam in the late 1950’s.

Lake Kariba Budget Safaris

Holding back the mighty Zambezi River, this man made lake is a haven for many bird species and is also rich in numerous types of flora and fauna. Perhaps because of its vast size (5,580 sq.km.), these varied species do not seem too disturbed by the boating enthusiasts who share their lake.

Accommodation options vary depending on the lodge or resort, but there are a number of Lake Kariba budget safaris options to suit all wallets.

Houseboats are a common sight on Lake Kariba and the crystal clear water, prolific bird life and golden sunsets make the houseboats a popular attraction for travellers.

Spot game from the deck while watching another glorious sunset, before sleeping on the boats overnight – a magical experience!
