It is located in an unspoiled wilderness. Lake Kashiba is situated southwest of Mpongwe District in the Copperbelt Province. It is accessible by an asphalt road most of the way and by a laterite road the rest of the way. The lake is populated by a variety of fish species while the surrounding mushitu forest is home to many birds. The beauty of the lake is further accentuated by the blueish hue of the water giving it the visual impression of a gigantic natural swimming pool, with no visible river entering or leaving it. With its dimension of 800 metres in length it has a depth of 100 metres on the sides. However, the depth at the center of the lake is unknown.  According to local traditions and legends, it is believed that if a canoe were sent drifting across, it would be sucked under.
