After your breakfast, you will have an opportunity to visit the world's largest man-made lake. This activity is at your own cost. In case you would like the lodge to organize transport for you, you can always check with the reception.
Take a walk on the famous dam wall! Lake Kariba one of the world's largest man-made lakes built in the late 1950s and completed in 1961. This hydro-electric dame is one of the greatest power units in Africa. The vast wall is a 124 metre arched wall which also bridges Zimbabwe and Zambia. The view is spectacular and something not to be missed when visiting the small town.
A visit to the dam wall with your own wheels is quite straightforward. Head down to the Zambian border crossing at Siavonga/Kariba; it’s a few kilometres from the wall. Enter the immigration building (on the right-hand side down some stairs as you face the border gate). Tell them that you just want to visit the wall and that you are coming back to Zambia and not going onto Zimbabwe. They will give you a stamped pass to the dam wall and ask you to leave some ID behind (driving licence or passport are OK). At the gate, show them your pass and you’ll be let through. From here it’s a short drive or walk to the wall. Once there, park your car and walk out over the wall: the views are spectacular and it’s well worth the trip – particularly if you admire gargantuan engineering projects. You should be allowed to take pictures of the wall but not the power station. Remember that the authorities don’t like cameras around here and have a fear of terrorism or sabotage to the dam. So do what they tell you. On the way back, surrender your pass at the border gate, and don’t forget to pick up your ID from immigration.
After the tour, you will head back to the lodge for your lunch and have some rest or go swimming by the beach or play beach volleyball.
Dinner will be in the evening while listening to some cool live music vibes (If available)
