Kariba Town of Mashonaland West

Kariba - Zimbabwe (Gache Gache Lodge) - Kariba, features Kariba Lake, an incredible expanse of water 220 km long and an average of 30 km across, that holds 200 billion tonnes of water! Kariba is home to the BaTonga people and also the home of Nyaminyami, the Zambezi River God. As a tourist destination, Kariba is well known for its amazing weather, Zimbabwe has one of the best climates in the world. Kariba’s varied Wildlife includes the awe-inspiring Elephant that can be seen ambling along the roads as well as in the bush and along the water’s edge, and one has to remember that all animals have the right of way if encountered up close & personal!! The Cape Buffalo herds also roam the wild and it is a special treat if you see lion and leopard, which DOES happen! There are also a variety of plains game species such as waterbuck, eland, bushbuck, impala, warthogs etc. And of course Hippo and Crocodile are prolific in and along the water’s edge... beware of the Crocs, they are renowned for attacking fishermen from the banks of the rivers and even off their canoes! Fishing is a hugely popular sport and the Tiger Fish is a Gamefish that fights the Angler hard. Kariba hosts the popular annual International Tiger Fishing Tournament where fishermen gather to compete every October. Tilapia (Bream) also make a great catch, and are excellent fish to eat.
