What a delight it is to see Lake Kariba from many captivating angles.
This is one of the spectacular views of the lake that can catch your eyes, I will list a few activities that you might be willing to engage in and a few travel tips that might come in handy
Cruise down Lake Kariba while a River Guide tells you stories passed down from generation to generation, tales of traditional fishing and the local people.
A pair of binoculars is probably the handiest item to bring along so you catch all views from far and wide and never miss anything.
Spend the day cruising the water and taking in the gorgeous views. Try your hand at fishing for Tiger, Bream (Tilapia) or Vundu to be caught and then released.
- A fishing rod is appropriate for this activity
- A pair of sunglasses to block the sun
- A big veranda hat
After a day in the bush, relax next to the campfire and allow yourself to get lost in the starry night above. At night, the stars utterly dominate the land; their brilliance and immediacy is totally arresting. Guides from the Bumi hills safari lodge have a growing passion in astronomy and are able to show you show you several star constellations including those which make up the Milky Way.
You need the most comfortable pair of clothes just to relax and watch the Milky Way.
Experience the bush when elusive nocturnal wildlife awakens to hunt, forage and live their lives under the cover of darkness.
Have you ever heard about the “Binga Beach”
This is Binga, whose name apparently roughly translates to either ‘the enclosure surrounding a chief’s village’ or ‘a thick forest country’.
Binga is a fishing, boating and cultural centre located on the South-Eastern shores of Lake Kariba in Matabeleland North province. It was built to accommodate the BaTonga people whose homelands had been flooded in the late 1950s when the Kariba dam wall was constructed. While you enjoy the shore you may find beautiful accommodation at the Masumu river lodge where you will enjoy the beautiful views of the lake and later take a walk on the shore. This is definitely a summer vibe.
