On the shores of Lake Kariba is Matusadona National Park, a wildlife-rich park with large herds of elephants and buffaloes

Matusadona National Park & Lake Kariba

Large herds of elephants and buffaloes

In the late 1950s, the Kariba Dam submerged much of the central Zambezi Valley, creating the third largest man-made lake in the world: Lake Kariba. The abundant wildlife concentrated on the islands and the southern shores where Matusadona National Park is formed. The lake is the perfect place to enjoy a sunset, the drowned mopane trees make for unique images. There is a lot of wildlife around the lake and in the national park, from herds of elephants to crocodiles. The Big Five also live in the park. You will find large herds of buffalo and a healthy population of antelopes, which have a great attraction to felines and other predators.

Spend a few nights on a lake side house boat or explore the pristine surroundings paddling by canoe towards Mana Pools.
