Zimparks

Profile

Sebakwe Recreational Park is situated in the Midlands of Zimbabwe and is easily accessed by all regions of the country.

Initially built with a small dam, an enlargement project was undertaken in 1981 to increase the size of the lake. After the enlargement, the main wall including the spillway, had been lengthened from 225 metres to 305 metres. The maximum height of the dam was raised to 47,2 metres. Consequently, the maximum depth of the water increased from 33,3 metres to 39,4 metres. The surface area of the water body became 2 600 hectares from the original 1 510 hectares, making it one of the largest in-land dams in Zimbabwe.
