Caribbea Bay Resort is located on the shore of the lake Kariba in Zimbabwe, a sight more in keeping with the blue waters of the Mediterranean than the heart of Southern Africa.
Just because Zimbabwe is a landlocked country in the middle of Southern Africa doesn’t mean it lacks a coastline.
Caribbea Bay Resort, with its unashamedly Sardinian-style architecture and feel, great climate all year round and a host of water sports on hand, is a favorite playground for Zimbabweans, as well as visitors to the country.
Deliberately fashioned with a Mediterranean coast ambience, Caribbea Bay Resort is an ideal base from which to explore this unique part of Zimbabwe and enjoy a sun-filled holiday in relaxed comfort. This well-appointed resort with its 83 rooms, seven of which are suites, has so much to offer. Tours to the nearby Kariba Dam are a big attraction with guests who wish to get to know the history and traditions of the local Tonga people and the mysteries of the Nyaminyami, the Zambezi River god, and his ‘influence’ over the locals.
Sunsets on Lake Kariba are legendary, with the famous, but very brief, green flash before the sun finally disappears, a sight always to be remembered. The resort is easily accessible by road, some three and a half hours’ drive from Harare, or by air with the airport only 13kms from the resort.
Accommodation at Caribbea Bay consists of 83 rooms and offers an exciting range of different room types. Rooms range from large spacious suites ideal for a family group, to executive rooms perfect for conferencing guests who wish to unwind at the end of a long day of meetings. Casita rooms are neat little family units that have bunk beds for children and either twin or double beds for the adults.
All rooms are tastefully decorated in a warm Caribbean feel and the light pink painted walls truly create the sense of being immersed in the Mediterranean.
