This wonderful Kariba Town Tour will take you to see the Kariba dam wall, Santa Barbara Chapel, Kariba Heights and the Mahombekombe township.
A half-day tour of Kariba includes a visit to the impressive Kariba Dam wall, the largest man-made reservoir in the world. Built with remarkable double-walled curvature concrete arches, the wall offers stunning views of the vast expanse of Lake Kariba. Visitors can walk the entire length of the wall, and when the gates are open, they can feel the power of the water rumbling beneath their feet. For those who prefer not to walk on the wall, there are excellent vantage points to witness the rushing water. The dam generates hydroelectric power that benefits both Zimbabwe and Zambia, making it an essential source of energy for the region.
Santa Barbara Chapel
Another stop on the tour is the Santa Barbara Chapel, a modern chapel built by the Italians who constructed the Kariba Dam wall in honor of the 86 men who lost their lives during its construction. The chapel offers extraordinary views over Kariba and is still a functioning place of worship today.
Kariba Heights, a viewpoint offering breathtaking views of Lake Kariba, the town, marina, and surrounding islands, is also included in the tour. This viewpoint should not be missed.
Finally, the tour takes visitors to Mahombekombe Township, one of the oldest and poorest suburbs in Kariba. This stop allows visitors to experience the Zimbabwean culture and gain insight into the history and daily lives of the local community.
