Just because Zimbabwe is a landlocked country in the middle of Southern Africa doesn’t mean it lacks a coastline. Lake Kariba is the largest man-made lake on the African continent after Egypt’s Aswan Dam and Cahora Bassa in Mozambique. Bordered by Zimbabwe and Zambia, and fed by the mighty Zambezi River, Lake Kariba not only generates impressive amounts of electricity, but Kariba town, near the massive dam wall, has become a tourist resort in its own right.

A short drive from the town, on the shore of the lake, is a sight more in keeping with the blue waters of the Mediterranean than the heart of Southern Africa. African Sun’s Caribbea Bay Resort, with its unashamedly Sardinian-style architecture and feel, great climate all year round and a host of water sports on hand, is a favourite playground for Zimbabweans, as well as visitors to the country.

Deliberately fashioned with a Mediterranean coast ambience, Caribbea Bay Resort is an ideal base from which to explore this unique part of Zimbabwe or just enjoy a sun-filled holiday in relaxed comfort. Sundowners on the pool deck, followed by an informal dinner in the Terrace Restaurant, then playing the tables at the intimate casino into the small hours, is only one of the leisure and lifestyle experiences awaiting guests.

They also get to know about the surroundings from highly-trained and friendly staff. The mysteries of the Nyaminyami, the Zambezi River god, and his ‘influence’ over the locals are some of the tales enjoyed by guests over a late-night drink.

This well-appointed resort with its 83 rooms, seven of which are suites, has so much to offer. Tours to the nearby Kariba Village are a big attraction with guests who wish to get to know the history and traditions of the local Tonga people.

Caribbea Bay evenings are always special. Its lively well-stocked bars, the Casita and the Jacana, are ideal spots to make new friends and listen to rich, mellow Afro-jazz from local musicians. After dinner, the resort casino takes the centre spot as the ultimate adult entertainment. The resort has two swimming pools and nearby tennis, squash and bowls facilities.
