The next morning you set out for the first fishing day. You will travel up river with our fishing boats. The tiger fish and Nembwes, the African version of the Peacock, are already waiting for your artificial lures or flies. Since we are at the best time for tiger fishing on the spot, we can expect true feeding franzies. The water is falling and the predators are waiting in the canals and inlets for easy prey. Feeding Franzies are normal in June and July and allow a fantastic surface fishing or great fights on the fly rod! This group trip is suitable for spin and fly fishermen. Both fishing methods are very successful in June. You fish all day and enjoy lunch on the fishing boats or return to the houseboat. In the evening you return to the houseboat. The houseboat will change the anker spots regarding the fishing conditions of the area. So you can fish a new section the next morning. In the evening, a course menu and cold drinks are waiting for you.
With the rising sun we continue on the river in search of the best spots for tiger fish and nembwe. You have a chance at big tiger fish up to ten kilos ... But even the smaller, more frequently occurring tiger fish provide a great fight on the light spinning gear. The spectacular jumps on the spin and fly rods make the tiger fish one of the most popular sport fish on the African continent. With our offer, you can experience the great fishing for these teeth-staring powerhouses and also realize the dream of Africa on one of the best houseboats on the Zambezi!
After the fishing days you leave the houseboat and check into Kasane in a brand new lodge. The next two days you will now go on a boat trip from the boat and off-road vehicle. You have the chance to see elephants, buffaloes, giraffes, hippos, countless bird species and if you are lucky, you will also see lions and leopards. After the two nights in Kasane, it's back to Victoria Falls and back to your home country.


Victoria Falls
We want to offer you the best of this Africa trip. For this reason, we have prepared an additional program for you at the Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and integrated this into your fishing trip. Thus, you have the opportunity to see one of the world natural wonders with your own eyes.
At the Falls you have the choice of booking several additional programs such as helicopter flights over the falls, bungee jumping or zip-slides in the gorge. We can assist you on site if you are keen to book one of the activities. You will spend a total of two nights at the beginning of the journey in Victoria Falls before heading to Botswana.
Victoria Falls offers several great restaurants with fantastic views of water holes or the gorge. We will organize a corresponding program in consultation with you.
