Kariba,Lake
Ka·ri·ba (kə-rēʹbə), Lake
A lake of south-central Africa on the Zambia-Zimbabwe border. It is formed by the Kariba Dam (completed 1958) on the Zambezi River, which supplies electricity to the copper mining region of north-central Zambia and to parts of Zimbabwe. The creation of the lake forced the relocation of about 50,000 people.
