This region of the Zambezi River offers remote, private water with numerous islands, rapids, deep channels to fish.
We offer a different and unique approach to tigerfishing by using specialist drift boats AND our motor boats. The attraction to our stretch of the Upper Zambezi river is the fact that we are almost the only commercial operator here – you are unlikely to see another boat on the river here. We also have an incredible variety of fishing water available – rapids, gorge water, slow and wide pieces etc.
What makes us different?
Our location in the southern half of Barotseland means you can reach our fishery WITHOUT having to use a charter flight if you prefer not to. We are located south of the floodplains and the bulk of our water is rock based.
