The beginning of 2007 saw the revival of the legend on Kariba Lake - The Tiger Bay Resort. A truly unique family holiday, game and fishing experience. Both Tiger Bay and Chura Bush Camp, situated a short distance from each other.
They are both set on the banks of the Ume River, an area which has been described as one of the most unique and scenic parts of Lake Kariba. Come and enjoy the thrill of waking up at sunrise, just metres from the waters edge, to watch the ink black night change first to silver, then crimson and finally gold.
The sun rises over the rim of the Mutusadona escarpment silencing the roar of the lion, the chuckle of the hippo and the bellow of the buffalo, leaving guests at both Tiger Bay and Chura Bush Camp in silent awe of it all.
The focal point of the complex is the spacious entertainment area that overlooks a swimming pool set amongst mature trees and lawn down to the river frontage. Downstairs is a dining area where meals are served and upstairs is a bar and lounge where guests can relax and enjoy a drink.
