      Lake Kariba, lake in central Africa, between Zambia and was formed by damming the Zambezi River in the Kariba Gorge, where the river narrows between hills of hard rock miles ( km) below Victoria Falls. After the hydroelectric facilities of the Kariba Dam served the towns of Zambia, the Harare (formerly Salisbury) and Bulawayo areas, and the southern part of Zimbabwe. Design/methodology/approach – The case study area is Lake Kariba and Kariba Dam wall located in the mid‐Zambezi river basin. The data and information for the case study is from ZRAs own records.

      History of the Building of Lake Kariba. The dam was an initiative of the Federation existing at the time between British ruled Northern and Southern Rhodesia (now Zambia and Zimbabwe) and Nyasaland (Malawi). To dam the great Zambezi floodplain was in many ways a hopeful leap into the future. Vast areas of forest and scrub would be inundated.   When Lake Kariba was formed in the area began to support a booming fishing industry in both Zimbabwe and Zambia. The Tanganyika sardine, otherwise known as the ‘Kapenta’, was a major source of food for people around the lake, and still is today. This species also happens to be a favourite food for the Read More.

        The dam wall of Lake Kariba is located at the former Kriwa (Kariba) gorge, it is the largest man-made dam wall in the world, standing m ( ft) tall and m (1, ft) long. It is a concrete double curvature arch dam, of mass concrete construction reinforced around the spillway gates. One of the delights of Kariba is the profusion of game which is so easily enjoyed. The Zimbabwe side of the lake has about 1 kilometres of shoreline, baked African fjords with placid backwaters and numerous islands. Often elephants can be seen swimming between the shore and islands, a sight perhaps unique to Lake Kariba.

Introduction The water of Lake Kariba and many islands on the Zimbabwe side have the status of recreational parks under Section 32 of the Parks and Wildlife Act (No. 14/75). New policies are now being implemented to make the artisanal sector and other stake-holders on the lake become part of the decision-making process.

It is envisaged that under the new regime of co-management, stake-holders will be able to participate in decision making on issues that directly, affect their operations on the lake.

Lake Kariba is the world's largest man-made lake and reservoir by volume. It lies 1, kilometres ( mi) upstream from the Indian Ocean, along the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. Lake Kariba was filled between and following the completion of the Kariba Dam at its northeastern end, flooding the Kariba Gorge on the Zambezi e depth: 29 m (95 ft).

Accommodation around Lake Kariba One of the largest man- made dams in Africa, Kariba is usually referred to as a lake because of its vastness and scenic beauty.

It offers a great, easy to access destination for relaxing getaways, excellent fishing, fantastic sunsets, and a variety of water sports. The Kariba Dam supplies 1, megawatts (2, hp) of electricity to parts of both Zambia (the Copperbelt) and Zimbabwe and generates 6, gigawatt-hours (23, TJ) per annum.

A gentle breeze from the water cools the hot day and a fish eagle calls every now and again as I look out over the blue expanse of Lake Kariba. The water gently laps the shore and I drink in the peace and quiet, sitting here at Musumu Lodge campsite near Binga. We decided to give Hwange a miss and rather explore the southern shores of Lake Kariba.

Lake Kariba is the result of a massive damming project undertaken in to flood an area of the Zambezi Valley in order to create a hydroelectric power plant for Zimbabwe and Zambia.

Many hundreds of local people were displaced in order to flood the valley, and many animals were relocated in the months before the floodgates finally opened.
