Hornbill Lodge, Kariba

Kariba, Zimbabwe

Hornbill Lodge is an intimate boutique lodge with panoramic views of Lake Kariba on the Zimbabwe side.

The Lodge offers beautiful accommodation in Kariba town situated at the top of Mica Point, above the shores of Lake Kariba.

This is a wonderful place from which to soak up the panoramic views of the Lake and relax under the shade of the indigenous trees in the lush garden while being spoilt with personalised service.

Lie back and enjoy the sunrise over the Lake Kariba from the comfort of your bed!

The rooms are all thatch, round structures with open fronts (no doors) which allow breathtaking views of Lake Kariba. Every room has mosquito nets, ceiling fans, mobile air conditioning units, tea and coffee making facilities & en suite bathrooms, A baby camp cot can be provided on request.

A daily housekeeping and complementary laundry service (takes 24 hours) is available.

Small and intimate, the Lodge offers very comfortable accommodation for a maximum of 12 people in five individual rooms. A large chalet houses the bar, lounge and dining area.

Fishing is the main activity in the area whether fishing for Bream (Tilapia) or the exhilarating Tiger Fish. Boats and tackle can be hired from near by harbours.

Sunset cruises and boat tours on Lake Kariba can be organised with safari operators in the town.

Game drives can also be arranged with businesses in the area, as the town is technically situated in a National Park. Sometimes you don’t even need to book a game drive, as the transfer from the airport can be just as exciting! The wildlife is wide spread and may be found roaming on the side of the road. The locals like to say “we don't have traffic jams we have elephant jams.”

Take a short drive to the Lake’s dam wall, which allows visitors to experience the magnitude of this amazing structure, completed in 1959.

There are many view points of the dam wall and Lake, a particularly spectacular look out point is at the Heights, located on a hill 600m above the lake

The Heights is a suburb of Kariba town with lovely veiws and a collection of little shops, curio stalls and the beautiful Chapel of Santa Barbara built in memory of the workers who died during the construction of the dam.
