5 Reasons to Visit One of the Top Safari Lodges in Kariba

  1. Sweeping views of the Lake are a must for any establishment that wants to offer the best Kariba experience. And, Kariba Safari Lodge offers amazing views from all its 9 open-fronted lodges and 8 suites. Guests can also enjoy vistas of the lake and the islands in the Eastern Basin of the Lake from the lodge’s main deck, conference area and dining area.

Only the best lodges in Kariba have views like this!
  1. Kariba Safari Lodge’s location is unique in that while the property is situated on a hill, it also has access to the water. Yes, there is a private beach on the property! And, as you can expect, guests can enjoy the beach for leisure and events. 
  1. What is a Kariba Holiday without getting into the water? The lodge has a 15-metre diameter swimming cage in which guests can swim safely in the azure blue waters of Lake Kariba. We say, safely, because Kariba is notorious for its high population of aquatic animals including Nile crocodiles.

  1. Real wildlife encounters from the lodge. As a result of its proximity to the lake, the lodge experiences moderately high traffic of animals and birds as they come to the water to quench their thirst. Most easily seen are the crocodiles on the beach and the playful vervet monkeys. Other wild animal sightings are of hippos, leopards, various antelope, zebra and, of course, water birds.

  1. At Kariba Safari Lodge guests can expect nothing but that distinctively warm Zimbabwean hospitality. The bedrock of Zimbabwean hospitality is its friendly people. And, when coupled with fine dining, comfortable accommodations, attentive lodge staff and experienced guides, guests are poised to have a memorable Kariba holiday experience.

And One Extra

  • As a member of the Zambezi Cruise and Safaris’ portfolio of properties, guests at Kariba Safari Lodge can add on a lake cruise experience. Our boats on Lake Kariba help complete the land and lake holiday experience. 

Firstly we have tiki catamarans upon which adventurous guests can explore the massive water body and its many waterways.

However, a three-night cruise on Zambezi Cruise and Safaris’ luxurious houseboats, is the best way for non-sailors to have unforgettable lake safari experiences.

The longer-stay houseboat packages provide a more immersive and wholesome experience. 

Prices of the Award-winning Lodges in Kariba 

The price for a one-night stay at Kariba Safari Lodge will not break the bank. At the same time, this award-winning establishment is NOT one of the “cheap” lodges in Kariba!
