  Our Hut on Lake Kariba
by kentishgirl

We stayed here for a night before heading out onto the lake on a houseboat and then another night when we came back from the houseboat before we went back down to Harare.

Its a nice camp, set on the edge of the lake.
Its a very security concious camp, all around it there is electric barbed wire which if any animal tries to get in and hits into the wire an alarm will sound.

Even so, this wire doesnt totally deter the animals as you can see from my things to do tip, so if you do stay in a tent here you should never leave food in your tent - if you do you are just asking for trouble!

Unique Qualities:
Its a small enough camp with a camping Area on grass. We stayed in one of their A Frames, which consisted of a mattress on the wooden raised floor with a mossie net.
The showers and toilets were shared - but hot!

There was a bar area too, with TV's we sat and watched rugby one night and footie another! They also serve food and I remember eating a delicious curry dish here.

Price Comparison: least expensive
Price: less than US$20
Theme: Campground

Review Helpfulness: 3 out of 5 stars
