Lake Kariba Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Once on dry land, these thousands of teak trees were half submerged in water as the lake slowly expanded to its present dimensions. Today, the skeletal branches of the trees jut into the sky from another world. At the downstream end by the dam, the town Kariba is equipped with sophisticated hotels, casinos and restaurants. The summit of the hill above the town offers a spectacular panorama of the lake, the dam wall and the downstream gorge. Lake Kariba dam wall was constructed in 1955/59, as a hydroelectric project.
