Tiger Fishing in Zimbabwe & Zambia
The razor-toothed tiger fish is pound-for-pound one of the world’s most powerful freshwater species. They are at their most active in the early summer from September to December. And provide excellent sport but you can fish at any time of year. Probably the three main areas are the Lower Zambezi National Park in Zambia, the Mana Pools National Park on the Zimbabwe side of the Zambezi River, and Lake Kariba also in Zimbabwe. (Some lodges on the Namibian side of the Chobe River also offer tiger fishing…)
Lake Kariba supports more than forty species of fish, most notably the famous fighting tiger fish, as well as plentiful hippo and crocodiles. The fertile soil on the bed of Lake Kariba provides plentiful nutrients for the lakes fish. The world record Tiger Fish was caught on a fly rod near Musango on Lake Kariba.
Please note: The price mentioned above is for a 3 hours fishing excursion in the Zimbabwe side, excludes the park fee (currently US$10.00). Please contact if you would like to do fishing in Zambia.
