Fishing

The mighty Zambezi River is home to some of Africa’s biggest and toughest Tiger Fish, with catches of up to 16lbs not uncommon. The Zambezi Grande Fishing Co. now gives you the chance to land one of the world’s most prized sport angling fishes!

Nestled along the magnificent banks of the Zambezi River, lies a place of untamed wilderness and adventure. Welcome to Zambezi Grande Private Game Experience! This will be your “home away from home”, where delicious hearty meals fuel you for days on the water, where tired limbs are refreshed in the cool swimming pool or with a soothing massage, and where tales of river monsters are shared around the evening firepit…

Prized species such as Tiger Fish and Vundu make the Lower Zambezi any sport angler’s dream destination!

All fishing is done off 18ft aluminium boats, which are fitted with 75 – 150hp motors. Each boat carries two anglers and a professional guide. There is ample storage and seating areas for three people. Boats are equipped with two-way radios and first aid equipment. Your professional guides have all spent extensive time guiding on these rivers, so you can be assured that they know these waters intimately and will ensure you have a safe and enjoyable fishing experience.

Whilst we can provide gear and tackle, we recommend that avid fishers bring their own equipment.
