After breakfast you will depart for Lake Kariba which used to be the biggest man-made dam in Africa before the Aswan Dam in Egypt was opened. The trip which is about 5 hours will take you through Kafue Town, where you will cross the Kafue River to Mazabuka, Zambia’s sugar capital (where you will see enormous sugarcane plantations which get their water from the Kafue Flats). The majority of your trip is on a high plateau (about 1100-1200 above sea level). From the high plateau you descend to a much lower, drier and hotter area. Along the road are areas dotted with old Baobab trees and traditional villages. Time stood still here. The last few kilometres to your destination are on sand tracks. Suddenly the lake and your accommodation appear on the horizon. You will spend the following days relaxing at Lake Kariba. The lake is famous for its spectacular sunsets. You will visit islands full of game and watch elephant and other wildlife from your house boat.
