Animals move freely in and around the lodge, heading to the Zambezi River in front of the lodge to quench their thirst. Game drives and walking safaris lead you into the belly of the bush, gifting up close and personal encounters with wildlife. Fall asleep to the sound of hippos in the distance, the wild orchestrating the night.
Move on to Kariba Safari Lodge to surrender to relaxation, sipping, dipping and exploring Lake Kariba. Relax on the shoreline, upon the wild sandy beach, or perhaps just lie by the pool at the lodge. The panoramic view of the lake is breathtaking. Dark blue waters stretch to the horizon, a scene akin to the ocean. To satiate your cultural and historical curiosity, one may take a day trip into town. Excursions to the dam wall, learning of the construction of this feat of engineering, a visit to the chapel as well as time with local residents in the township; a day out providing understanding and perspective of the area and its people. Head back to the lodge late afternoon to embark on a catamaran cruise, literally sailing into the sunset.
