Lake Kariba is over 223 kilometres (139 miles) long and up to 40 kilometres (25 miles) in width. It covers an area of 5,580 square kilometres (6.01×1010 square feet)mi) and its storage
capacity is 185 cubic kilometres (44 cubic miles). The mean depth
of the lake is 29 metres (95 feet); the maximum depth
is 97 metres (318 feet). It is the world's largest man-made reservoir, four times as large as the Three Gorges Dam. The enormous mass of water
(approximately 180,000,000,000,000 kilograms, or 180 petagrams [200 billion tons]) is believed to have caused induced seismicity in the seismically active region, including over 20 earthquakes of greater than 5 magnitude on the Richter scale.
The lake has several islands, including Maaze Island, Mashape Island, Chete Island, Sekula, Sampa Karuma, Fothergill, Spurwing, Snake Island, Antelope Island, Bed
Island, and Chikanka.
