Lake Kariba Safari

Sigo Adventure and Tours will take you to the largest crocodile farm in Zambia and certainly one of the largest commercial Nile crocodile farms in the world.

A visit to Lwiimbo Lwa Zambezi I to us is definitely incomplete without a tour of this impressive farm. Unlike crocodile farms run purely for tourism, our 2 hour guided tour is very different in the sense that we explain all the operational, business and conservation aspects of commercial Nile crocodile farming as well as giving you the chance to enjoy the excitement of feeding the adult crocs.

The breeding dams that stock over 2000 breeders are spectacular in themselves – all left completely natural and boasting a haven of birdlife – over 200 species have been documented so far, including 14 African Fish Eagle in 1 tree alone. This is where bird watching comes in – a guided tour in and around the breeding dams, an activity that keen birders would thoroughly enjoy.

What better way to wind down the day than a stress-free sunset cruise on magnificent Lake Kariba, one of the largest man-made dams in the world that covers over 5000 square kilometers? Our 3 hour cruise takes you along the shores of private islands home to a large variety of wildlife that includes eland, kudu, sable, Lichtenstein’s hartebeest, reedbuck, impala, common duiker, zebra, wildebeest, Defasa waterbuck, hippo, warthog, bush pig and more like occasional elephants that swim from island to island in search of food.

Or how about something a little more exciting like a day out fishing around the islands in search of the infamous game fish - the Tiger, known not only for its beauty but also for the impressive fight on the end of your line! If you are lucky enough to land one, one of our Chef’s would happily cook you up a delicious meal with your catch of the day.
