Did you know you can find plenty of flora and fauna in a man-made lake in Africa? Lake Kariba is a 256,000 square mile wide lake (making it the largest in Africa) in Zambia and Zimbabwe that was formed by a dam. The lake was originally created to support a fishing village and fishing industry but over the time, it became a lifeline for wildlife that adopted the area as its year-round home. Tourists report feeling as if they’re exploring an ocean rather than a lake since the water is so abysmal. There’s a reason why Lake Kariba can’t seem to stop drawing visitors from around the world. Here are some fun things you can do on a trip to Lake Kariba.
