We have put together a collection of tiger fishing lodges that offer a combination of: Easy logistics, comfort, great food and the perfect locations. Boats and skippers have to make the grade and we have a 2 clients to a boat rule to avoid overcrowding.

We work closely with our selected lodges to ensure that the packages we offer to our clients are affordable and offer value for money. All packages can be taken with or without flights, we get great airfares due to the flight business we place as a group.

The volume of business we send to the lodges enables us to negotiate competative rates that we pass over to you the angler, it’s what we do.

The Zambezi River

The mighty Zambezi River has become the number one destination for avid fresh water anglers to “take on” the ferocious tiger fish (Hydrocynus Vittatus). From its source in Zambia to the Indian Ocean Sea, the Zambezi River spans 1 599 miles (2 574kms) and touches the following countries: Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Mozambique and Angola.

Along its course, the river evolves from a trickling spring to a massive span that has created some of the world’s most magnificent water features such as Victoria Falls, Sioma Falls and the lakes, Kariba and Cahora Bassa
