If you have ever dreamed of fishing for tiger fish on the Zambezi River this is the lodge for you. The lodge is located on a backwater of the main channel of the Zambezi River. It is a very nice camp with cabin style cottages, swimming pool, pub and many other amenities. This is a real fishing camp. They have numerous fishing boats most with brand new motors. The native fishing guides know this area extremely well and they certainly know how to fish the Zambezi for tigers.

Tiger fishing is extremely exciting and the fish put up a heck of a fight usually making fast hard runs and jumping high out of the water. It is some of the most thrilling fishing there is.

Days begin early in the morning with coffee and a quick breakfast. Then you are out on the river right after sun up. You will be amazed at the number of different species of birds you will see as well as the other wildlife in the area including elephants, hippos and crocodiles. The fishing guides have a vast knowledge of the wildlife species in the region and can identify the many species of birds for you. They can describe their habits and many interesting facts about them. You will definitely want your camera in the boat with you.

As you fish the Zambezi you will see local villages and native fishing camps on both the Namibia and Zambia side of the river. It is a wild part of Africa where many of the native people still live in mud huts with thatched roofs.

It is also simple for us to add a few days of fishing on to almost any one of our hunting packages. You will fly into Livingstone Zambia and it is a 2 1/2 to 3 hour drive from the airport to camp. You may also want to consider adding a day or two to see some of the other sights in the area like Victoria Falls which are located nearby. This outfitter can also provide river cruises for sightseeing and photography.
