This original vintage travel poster was issued to promote Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) as a travel destination showcasing the magnificent Kariba Dam, one of the largest man-made lakes in the world.
The image on the poster features the towering wall of the Kariba Dam, which is an engineering marvel in itself. The dam spans across the Zambezi River and created a massive artificial lake that is a haven for wildlife and adventure seekers alike. The text on the poster highlights the beauty and excitement of the region, stating that "Fighting tiger-fish leap from its waters. Africa's big game drink at its shores."
The Kariba Dam and its lake have always been a major attraction for tourists in Rhodesia. The lake is home to some of the most sought-after game fish in the world, including the fierce tiger fish, which is known for its speed and agility. The shores of the lake are also a popular spot for wildlife sightings, with elephants, buffaloes, and hippos being regular visitors.
The poster is in good condition, although it does have some creases, stains, foxing and margin wear.
