This 9 night itinerary takes in three areas on the mighty Zambezi River from the Upper Zambezi on the Namibian border to Victoria Falls, finishing on the Lower Zambezi.
On this trip you'll fish for the Tiger fish, Yellow Belly Bream, Three Spot Bream and Kafue Pike on the upper Zambzi and you'll fish for Tiger Fish and the giant Vundu catfish. The Lower Zambezi is also home to Three Spot Bream, Red Breasted Bream, Nile Bream, Chessa, Nkupi, Bottlenose and the Cornish Jack.
Where is it?
This fishing expedition starts at the confluence of the Chobe and Zambezi Rivers in Namibia, where four countries meet (Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana).
From here you’ll head to Livingstone for three nights just upstream from the ‘smoke that thunders’, Victoria Falls.
The trip finishes with three nights in the Lower Zambezi, a mecca for fly fishing.
What is the best time of year to go?
June to August is the most rewarding time for fishing on the Upper Zambezi as the water levels are receding and the fry that live in the grassy floodplain are being emptied into the river, causing a feeding frenzy amongst the fish.
August to November is the best time to catch Tiger Fish on the Lower Zambezi.
However there is good fishing throughout this region year round.
How to get there
This itinerary starts and ends in Lusaka, which is served three times a week by BA from London Heathrow.
Alternatively we can arrange flights from Johannesburg into Livingstone (and from Lusaka back to Johannesburg).
