About Sidinda Lodge


Sidinda Island lodge is below the Vic falls where the Zambezi and Sidinda rivers meet which is about 80km from the renowned Victoria Falls town. Sidinda offers guests dramatic gorge fishing and exclusive use of 16km of river which includes calm and stirring stretches of water accompanied by striking scenery.

This is what we suggest to tempt the racy tigers around Sidinda

Sidinda species
Tigerfish, Barbel, Bream, Vundu catfish (huge), Electric catfish, Squeaker, Nkupe & Chessa

Flies and Lures
Tiger can be caught by a variety of methods such as fly fishing, trolling, spinning, drifting and bottom fishing and one can also use live bait (or a combination). The small sardine (kapenta) was introduced into Lake Kariba some 10 years ago, on a commercialised basis to provide protein for the population and account for more than half of the tigerfish's diet. An interesting trick is to throw handfuls of them from purchased packets to induce feeding frenzies. Best fishing times coincide with the hot season starting in September through to December.

Standard bait castings rods or spinning rods for tigers (eg. Shimano Nexave) are ideal for conventional fishing with 9 weights being the Zambezi standard weight for fly, (the average tiger is 5lbs so a small weight can be attempted). Fly line needs to be matched to the rod with an intermediate line working very well.
