Your gateway to Lake Kariba, Zimbabwe's water & wildlife wonderland

Where we are

By Road

From Harare, take the Harare Chirundu road through the towns of Banket, Chinhoyi and Karoi till you reach Makuti (Approximately 290 kms), where you will turn left and proceed down the escarpment, and travel for 75 kilometres until you reach the town of Kariba. Marineland Harbour is situated just off the main Kariba/Harare road, turn left at the Garage (on entry into Kariba town area, GPS S16° 31. 46.0. E28° 48. 28.2.), and a 2 minute drive down the hill towards Carribea Bay Hotel and you will find Marineland?s Harbour and entrance on the left which is well signposted. The GPS position for Marineland is S16° 320 2.55. E28° 48. 12.9.
If driving from Zambia you may also drive directly across the Kariba Dam wall via the Siavonga border crossing in Zambia to the Zimbabwe border post, both are situated on either side of the dam wall. Border post times for Kariba Dam wall are: 06.00 - 18.00 hrs. Vehicle entry from Zambia is also possible into Zimbabwe using the Chirundu border post, approximately 140 kilometres from Kariba. Border post times at Chirundu are: 06.00 - 18.00 hrs. You would drive from Chirundu on the main Harare road for approximately 70kms and would turn left onto the Kariba Road at Makuti.
Driving is on the left side of the road and the general speed limit is 120 km/h on open roads and 60km/h in urban areas, but watch for speed restriction signs. It is highly recommended that you drive with caution and do not speed in the Kariba area as wildlife is often encountered on the roads, particularly after dusk. Marineland can arrange transfers to and from Harare/Lusaka by road should you wish.
