Lake Kariba Weekly Levels in Meters
The Kariba Lake is designed to operate between levels 475.50m and 488.50m (with 0.70m freeboard) for hydropower generation.
The Lake level, which should generally be decreasing at this time of the year, has been steadily rising during the period under review due to earlier than usual rise in inflows from the immediate Kariba Lower Catchment, closing at 478.33m (19.73% usable storage) on 28th December 2020, compared to 476.70m (8.30% usable storage) recorded on the same date last
