FISHING ADVENTURE TO SIDINDA
SIDINDA ISLAND LODGE – Zambezi River Gorge, Zimbabwe
There is a window of fishing opportunity that presents itself from August until December in a wild part of the Zambezi River called the “middle Zambezi”. This section of river starts right under the mighty Victoria Falls and ends up at the dam wall that holds back the trillion litres of Kariba Lake water.
Kariba Lake tigers are a more docile type fish that grow fat and tempt many Zimbabweans to attend and contest the annual Kariba Tiger Tournament (or Tiger slaughter as we like to call it). This is not the middle Zambezi we aim our rods at… we at TigerFishingZambezi.Com target the more “athletic” river tigers that are plentiful in around Sidinda Island Lodge.
The lodge lies below Victoria Falls, approx 80kms from our favourite “little water feature”. Dramatic gorge fishing is the main offering and the tiger fish are more river defined, i.e. we call them “tigers with shoulders”.
This remote lodge offers approx 14kms of totally private waters due to a convenient rapid that forms a barrier to other boats wanting to fish the section. The lodge sleeps 8 comfortably and offers flat deck Bass boats for clients wishing to fish either conventionally or on fly. Sidinda is a comfortable hour and a half drive from Victoria Falls Town. Our fly in package includes transfers from Vic Falls Airport in an air conditioned 4x4 or similar.The lodge itself is very comfortable and well positioned on the Zambezi River. Each en-suite chalet features a stunning river view and all sumptuous meals are taken in the main lodge area. Cell phone reception is limited to a small section of the beach in front of the lodge and guests will need to be on international roaming.
The rate includes: Accommodation, all meals, guided fishing, laundry and transfers to and from Victoria Falls.
