  • The eastern Caprivi is home to large floodplains with their diverse habitats and variety of fishable waters suitable for beginner or skilled angler alike.
  • The most sort after prized of these waters is the Tiger fish renown for their ferocious knock and hard fight, can reach up to 20 lbs but there are a number of bream species plus African Pike, catfish and Zambezi Yellowfish which are valued catches.
  • Ichingo is known for quality guiding and the number of well maintained boats which include two jet boats that allow the lodge access to the rapids even in low water.

Tigerfish take full advantage of all this extra food, and this can result in incredible Tiger frenzies during the winter months.
