I have two days available in my itinerary and would like to see the most important aspects of Kariba.
With one night you wouldn't have much flexibility - do a town tour, see the dam wall and Observation Post, get out to the Information Centre and Museum, get to the Heights for St. Barbara's Church and the viewpoint over Lake Kariba and do a Sunset Cruise on the lake.
With two nights allowing one full day you have several good options - do some of the above with the slack time between flights and then do a full day activity. The best is the combination safari over a full day. It includes a game drive into Kuburi and the Charara Safari Area, a walk with a Pro guide, a short canoe trip up the Nyaodza to a place called "hippo city" and then a trip back by boat with sundowners in the treeline before returning to your hotel in Kariba. It's all inclusive and costs US$75 plus Z$100 for parks fees. Have a good breakfast in advance, take sufficient film for the wildlife you'll encounter and don't expect a late night afterwards. A good option is the one day canoeing on the lower Zambezi through the Kariba Gorge. It runs on the Zambian side - the scenery through the Gorge is excellent, but don't expect to see lots of game. It costs US$70 plus half the cost of the Visa for the Zambian entry.
If you really want to get a good taste of the Zambezi Valley then you need to put aside 4 days.
