Zambia and Matsuda are bordered by Lake Kariba, which is the world’s biggest artificial lake.

It is very comfortable and lavish with a relaxed atmosphere, and you find a lot of peace here.

Sometimes your quiet is disrupted when an African fish eagle glides over. Since you reside by the water, you are prone to witness water monitors and hippos, and you are very much welcomed to ride on to the fishing trip.
