Activities at Lumbe Pools

Snorkeling, Beach boule, golf, fishing and more!

Lumbe Pools isn’t just another fishing camp on the Zambezi – there is something for everyone here!

We built Lumbe Pools with families, friends and non-hardcore anglers in mind so for those looking for more than just fishing, there is plenty to do!

Although our tiger fishing is in high demand, our location near the Sioma Falls and on the banks of the Lumbe means there are a number of different activities to enjoy.

LUMBe activities


Strictly in the Lumbe, snorkel in the crystal clear pools to see our labeos, barbs, minnows and small bream that live in amongst the rocks.


“Beach” Games

We have access to a lot of squeaky white beaches for tanning, beach boules, beach golf and frizbee.



In addition to tiger fishing, we offer ‘doba doba’ angling for youngsters and the chance to nymph the rapids of the Lumbe and Zambezi for yellowfish and labeo.


Sioma Falls

No visit to Lumbe Pools would be complete without a trip to the Sioma Falls – the second largest waterfall on the Zambezi – to swim in the natural jacuzzis and have G & T’s on the rocks next to the Falls.


Walking, Running or Birding

Enjoy the various trails around Lumbe for running or walking (note sand is soft) or birding for riverine and miombo species.


Lumbe Pools is open from 1 March - 15 December

You can visit Lumbe Pools between March and December but keep in mind that some of the activities will be better experienced at certain times of the year. Chat to us about what type of experience you're looking for and we can recommend when the best time to go would be.
