Zambezi Fishing Safaris Overview
The Zambezi is the fourth longest in Africa, and beneath it’s mirrored surface, over 60 schools of fish dart around.
Our fishing expeditions explore the Upper Zambezi, and this magnificent stretch of water offers some of the best fishing in Africa.
It is also the territory of the coveted Tiger Fish. This evasive fighting fish is considered a trophy among fishermen, and hauling in the impressive Tiger is a highlight of many fishing expeditions.
The Catch and Release philosophy ensures that after a battle of wills, the fish slips back into the Zambezi, waiting for its next challenger.
With over 60 species of fish inhabiting the river, fishing is a year-round activity, and we target different species during different periods throughout the year.
