My experience here was awesome.. this resort is a great location and is indeed refreshing. I would strongly advise that people visit Kariba during winter, when it may be it be cooler. the service was excellent and the rooms were Mediterranean themed which constantly reminded me of the great lake Kariba

The hotel is good and offers good accomodation and conference facilities. Though Kariba is not my favourite place since it has few activities. I have gone there several times both on leisure and business

game drive and boat cruising are the best main attraction, You get to view different animals like elephants and hippos. The hotel room is neat , nothing extra ordinary. The atmosphere is quiet, relaxing and clean. A good break from hectic cities .
