Kariba - Legacy of a Vision

Kariba Dam was ‘Africa’s Greatest Mass of Masonry Since the Pharaohs Built the Pyramids’, the Sunday Mail thundered on completion of the wall in 1959. In this picture-rich book, the construction of what remains the world’s biggest man-made lake is retold by those involved in the project.

Strong on social history, Kariba – Legacy of a Vision by Jonathan Waters contains the stories of over 100 people who drove the development of industries around the lake in the six decades since its completion.
