The climate of Kariba (Zimbabwe)
Kariba is a small city located in the northern part of Zimbabwe in the province of Mashonaland. Kariba is situated on Lake Kariba in the vicinity of the Zambezi River. Because of its situation on Lake Kariba the city and the surrounding places are very popular among tourists. This part of the country is also known as the Zimbabwean Riviera. The lake is also popular among anglers who go on so called canoe safaris. Kariba has a warm steppe climate with higher precipitation figures and higher average temperatures than in other parts of Zimbabwe. This is caused by the situation of the city in the Zambezi Valley. Because of this night time temperatures are slightly higher here than in other places in Zimbabwe; subzero temperatures during the night are uncommon.
