Zambezi Fishing

Hooked on the Zambezi

The Zambezi is famous for one of the great freshwater game fish Ė The Tigerfish. Powerful, swift predators Tigerfish are a thrill to catch and require a great deal of fishing skill with a good river specimen weighing over 15 lbs. Bream, or Tilapia, also live in large numbers in the river and although they donít fight quite as aggressively as the Tiger a good 5 lb fish will quickly snap light tackle given half the chance. Spinners and lures are the most common method of catching these fish although using light tackle, a fly and a fly-rod is becoming very popular and brings an extra dimension to a very exciting sport.

Pick up is at the Day Activity Centre before a drive to one of the launch sites to board the boat and set off to the fishing grounds.
