Cahora Bassa Lake
Situated in the Tete Province in Mozambique, the Cahora Bassa Lake is Africa's second-largest artificial lake. The Cahora Bassa Dam system is the largest hydroelectric scheme in southern Africa and it is one of the three major dams on the Zambezi river system, the others being Kariba and Itezhi-Tezhi. The nearest town is called Songo, established in 1969 to house the workers for the construction of the dam. Ugezi Tiger Lodge is quite close to Songo and has an à la carte restaurant, as well as a campsite with floodlights and security. Great fishing and water-skiing are the main attractions of this area.
Admission: Entry to the dam is restricted and visitors should speak to the owner of O Sitio restaurant about admission before leaving Songo.
