What You Can Expect:

Bird Watching

Lake Kariba is a birding destination for birding enthusiasts and avid birdwatchers. The area has more than 240 bird species recorded and is particularly rich in waders and other water-associated birds. The dead mopane trees on the lakeshore are covered by large numbers of perched birds, including cormorants, darters, and many fish eagles – their cries regularly filling the air.

Fishing

Lake Kariba is well known for its fishing and especially sport-fishing! This vast expanse of fresh water is home to some fantastic species of fish including the Tigerfish, Bream, Tilapia, Catfish, Barbel, Labeo, Jack and the mighty Vundu, that commonly attains the size of a fully grown man.

Game Viewing

There are game reserves in the area which have a large concentration of wild lions. Other wildlife includes white rhino, elephant, giraffe, zebra, buffalo, leopard, hyaena, cheetah, and over 240 species of birdlife. Hippopotamus and the Nile crocodile are frequently seen and if you are lucky, a variety of small mammals can be spotted.

Sunbathing

Unique has a spacious upper deck with a bar area and dining area. If you’re not after adventure, then simply unwind and soak up the great African sun.
