Kwamashi Floodplain Tiger Fishing Safari – 6 Day
Running for the first time in October, this untapped fishery in Western Zambia has produced some of our best Bream as well as great Tiger fish on light tackle.
Arrival in the Kwamashi Floodplains
The Kwamashi fishing safari takes place on the Kwando River – located in the south western region of
Barotseland. Groups of 8 people will be collected from Mutemwa Airstrip (can be reached through flights
from Livingstone OR Lanseria) and driven by road through the Sioma Ngwezi National Park. Alternatively,
self drive is possible from the route above.
Accommodation will be in mobile safari camps which are built up from scratch every year and then broken
down completely at the end of the season. Each angler will have their own 3m x 3m bow tent with a proper
bed, linen, towelling, bedside tables and solar lanterns. The 2 ablution blocks are equipped with hot water,
high pressure showers, sinks and flushing toilets. We dine beneath the stars and trees and our “lounge”
remains the ring of comfy lounge safari chairs around the roaring fire looking over the floodplain.
A typical day on the Kwando River R
Early morning coffee around the campfire as the Hornbills leave their floodplain roosting spots is
enjoyed before you get on the boats (loaded with ice cold drinks and packed lunches) and head onto the main
channel of the Kwando river. Your guide will then find a promising bend and you can start drifting silently
fishing towards the structure or work a quiet backwater for bream. Groups can either return for brunch and a
snooze or enjoy a full day exploring this wonderful fishing wilderness and untouched waters accompanied
by numerous different bird species. We return to camp before last light, enjoy showers and dinner beneath
the African stars.
