You’ll find the town of Siavonga perched on the edge of Lake Kariba’s northeastern shores. This is an idyllic location in the Zambezi valley, the vast expanse of the lake on one side and green hills on the other. The town was born in the 1950s as a camp for the builders working on the dam, but in the 1960s, after the dam’s completion, it became a conference and holiday venue for affluent Zambians and international travellers.
