One of the world's largest manmade lakes, Lake Kariba is Lion King-worthy sunsets and gorgeous game-rich shores

When the Kariba Gorge was dammed in the 1950s, the world's largest manmade lake was formed. Today the home of five-star safari lodges and houseboats, Lake Kariba is an undiscovered African Riviera on Zimbabwe's northern border. Remote, vast and exclusive, it's an outstanding natural playground. Here, skies explode with some of the best sunsets in Africa, and thanks to its fertile game-rich shores, there's always an opportunity to go tiger fishing, join a boat safari or try a spot of game viewing in nearby Matusadona National Park.
